2:1 So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, 2 complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. 3 Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. 4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. 5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,16 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped,27 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant,3 being born in the likeness of men.
2:5Or which was also in Christ Jesus 2:6Or a thing to be held on to for advantage 2:7Or slave (for the contextual rendering of the Greek word doulos, see Preface)
