This verse of scriputre is referred to as a hymn, and this is the first translation that I have read that actually translated it poetically. I am just wondering what your reactions are, and for you Greek experts out there is this an accurate translation? I copied it exactly the way they have it laid out on their on-line version.
6 In God’s own form existed he,
and shared with God equality,
deemed nothing needed grasping.
7 Instead, poured out in emptiness,
a servant’s form did he possess,
a mortal man becoming.
In human form he chose to be,
8 and lived in all humility,
death on a cross obeying.
9 Now lifted up by God to heaven,
a name above all others given,
this matchless name possessing.
10 And so, when Jesus’ name is called,
11 Then every tongue in one accord,
will say that Jesus the Messiah is Lord,
while God the Father praising.
