5  Hoc enim sentite in vobis, quod et in Christo Iesu:
6  qui cum in forma Dei esset, non rapinam arbitratus est esse se æqualem Deo:
7  sed semet ipsum exinanivit formam servi accipiens, in similitudinem hominum factus, et habitu inventus ut homo.
8  Humiliavit semet ipsum factus obediens usque ad mortem, mortem autem crucis.
9  Propter quod et Deus exaltavit illum, et donavit illi nomen, quod est super omne nomen:
10  ut in nomine Iesu omne genu flectatur cælestium, terrestrium,
et infernorum,
11  et omnis lingua confiteatur quia Dominus Iesus Christus in gloria est Dei Patris.

5  For let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6  Who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7  But emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men, and in habit found as a man.
8  He humbled himself, becoming obedient unto death, even to the death of the cross.
9  For which cause, God also hath exalted him and hath given him a name which is above all names:
10  That in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those that are in heaven, on earth,
and under the earth:
11  And that every tongue should confess that the Lord Jesus Christ is in the glory of God the Father.
