Philippians 2:6–8

who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped,1 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant,2 being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
