Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write
the same things to you, to me indeed is not
grievous, but for you it is safe.
3:2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware
of the concision.
3:3 For we are the circumcision, which worship God
in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have
no confidence in the flesh.
3:4 Though I might also have confidence in the
flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath
whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more:
3:5 Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of
Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the
Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;
3:6 Concerning zeal, persecuting the church;
touching the righteousness which is in the law,
3:7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted
loss for Christ.
3:8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss
for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus
my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all
things, and do count them but dung, that I may win
3:9 And be found in him, not having mine own
righteousness, which is of the law, but that which
is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness
which is of God by faith:
3:10 That I may know him, and the power of his
resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings,
being made conformable unto his death;
3:11 If by any means I might attain unto the
resurrection of the dead.
3:12 Not as though I had already attained, either
were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I
may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended
of Christ Jesus.
3:13 Brethren, I count not myself to have
apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting
those things which are behind, and reaching forth
unto those things which are before,
3:14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the
high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
3:15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be
thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise
minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.
3:16 Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained,
let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same
3:17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark
them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.
3:18 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often,
and now tell you even weeping, that they are the
enemies of the cross of Christ:
3:19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their
belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind
3:20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence
also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:
3:21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be
fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to
the working whereby he is able even to subdue all
things unto himself.
