although I myself might have confidence even in the flesh. If anyone else has a mind to put confidence in the flesh, I far more: (Philippians 3:4)

circumcised the eighth day, of the nation of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; as to the Law, a Pharisee; (Philippians 3:5)

as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; as to the righteousness which is in the Law, found blameless. (Philippians 3:6)

But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. (Philippians 3:7)

More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ, (Philippians 3:8)

and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith, (Philippians 3:9)

that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death; (Philippians 3:10)

in order that I may attain to the resurrection from the dead. (Philippians 3:11)

Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:12)

Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, (Philippians 3:13)

I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:14)

For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; (Philippians 3:20)
