2:5 You should have the same attitude toward one another that Christ Jesus had,

6 who, though he existed in the form of God,

did not regard equality with God

as something to be grasped,

7 but emptied himself

by taking on the form of a slave,

by looking like other men,

and by sharing in human nature.

8 He humbled himself

by becoming obedient to the point of death

—even death on a cross!

9 As a result God highly exalted him

and gave him the name

that is above every name,

10 so that at the name of Jesus

every knee will bow

—in heaven and on earth and under the earth—

11 and every tongue confess

that Jesus Christ is Lord

to the glory of God the Father.
