5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:  KJV

5 Let this same attitude and purpose and [humble] mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus: [Let Him be your example in humility:]  AMP

5 Let your attitude toward one another be governed by your being in union with the Messiah Yeshua:  CJB

5-8 Think of yourselves the way Christ Jesus thought of himself. He had equal status with God but didn’t think so much of himself that he had to cling to the advantages of that status no matter what. Not at all. When the time came, he set aside the privileges of deity and took on the status of a slave, became human! Having become human, he stayed human. It was an incredibly humbling process. He didn’t claim special privileges. Instead, he lived a selfless, obedient life and then died a selfless, obedient death—and the worst kind of death at that—a crucifixion.  MSG


6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:  KJV

6 He who, while he was in the form of God, did not esteem this as a prize, that he was the equal of God,  ARAM

6 who, though he was in the form of God,
    did not regard equality with God
    as something to be exploited,   NRSVACE

6 He always had the nature of God, but he did not think that by force he should try to remain [or become] equal with God.  GNT

6 Who, although being essentially one with God and in the form of God [possessing the fullness of the attributes which make God God], did not think this equality with God was a thing to be eagerly grasped or retained,  AMP

6 ·Christ himself was like God in everything [L Who, being in the form of God].  But he did not think that being equal with God was something to be ·used for his own benefit [or grasped; seized; held on to].  EXB

5-6 Let Christ himself be your example as to what your attitude should be. For he, who had always been God by nature, did not cling to his prerogatives as God’s equal, but stripped himself of all privilege by consenting to be a slave by nature and being born as mortal man.  PHILLIPS


14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.  KJV

14 Like a man running a race, I try hard to reach the line so that I will receive the prize. Because we belong to Christ Jesus, God is calling us to receive this prize that he has for us in heaven.  WE

12-14 Yet, my brothers, I do not consider myself to have “arrived”, spiritually, nor do I consider myself already perfect. But I keep going on, grasping ever more firmly that purpose for which Christ grasped me. My brothers, I do not consider myself to have fully grasped it even now. But I do concentrate on this: I leave the past behind and with hands outstretched to whatever lies ahead I go straight for the goal—my reward the honour of being called by God in Christ.  PHILLIPS


7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  KJV

7 Then God’s peace, which goes beyond anything we can imagine, will guard your thoughts and emotions through Christ Jesus.  GW

7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.  NLT

And know that the peace of God (a peace that is beyond any and all of our human understanding) will stand watch over your hearts and minds in Jesus, the Anointed One.  VOICE

7 And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.  AMP

7 Then God will give you peace, a peace which is too wonderful to understand. That peace will keep your hearts and minds safe as you trust in Christ Jesus.  WE
