Christ's Example of Humility

Philippians 2

1 Therefore if there is any 1 consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any a affection and mercy, 2 b fulfill my joy c by being like-minded, having the same love, being of d one accord, of one mind. 3 e Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but f in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. 4 g Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of h others. 5 i Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, j being in the form of God, did not consider it 2 robbery to be equal with God, 7 k but 3 made Himself of no reputation, taking the form l of a bondservant, and m coming in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and n became o obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. 9 p Therefore God also q has highly exalted Him and r given Him the name which is above every name, 10 s that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and t that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
