PHILIPPIANS 3: 7-11

                                                

NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION:


 7 But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. 

8 What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in[a] Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith.

10 I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, 

11 and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead 



THE MESSAGE VERSION:

NEW KING JAMES VERSION:


7 But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ.  

8 Yet indeed I also count all things loss for  the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I  have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I  may gain Christ  9 and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith;  

10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, 

11 if, by any means, I may attain[b] to the resurrection from the dead.
