Philippians 3:1-11 (ESV, emphases mine)
Finally, my brothers, rejoice in the Lord. To write the
same things to you is no trouble to me and is safe for
2 Look out for the dogs, look out for the evildoers, look
out for those who mutilate the flesh.
3 For we are the circumcision, who worship by the
Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no
confidence in the flesh—
4 though I myself have reason for confidence in the
flesh also. If anyone else thinks he has reason for
confidence in the flesh, I have more:
5 circumcised on
the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of
Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; as to the law, a
6 as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; as
to righteousness under the law, blameless.
7 But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the
sake of Christ.
8 Indeed, I count everything as loss
because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ
Jesus my Lord. For His sake I have suffered the loss
of all things and count them as rubbish, in order 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 comes through faith in Christ, the
righteousness from God that depends on faith— 10 that
I may know Him and the power of His resurrection,
and may share His sufferings, becoming like Him in
His death,
11 that by any means possible I may attain
the resurrection from the dead
