17-19 Stick with me, friends. Keep track of those you see running this same course, headed for this same goal. There are many out there taking other paths, choosing other goals, and trying to get you to go along with them. I’ve warned you of them many times; sadly, I’m having to do it again. All they want is easy street. They hate Christ’s Cross. But easy street is a dead-end street. 

– Philippians 3:17-19

The Message Version (MSG)


17-19 以我為榜樣,朋友們。與同跑天路者齊頭並進,為同一個目標而努力。有許多人偏離正軌、選擇其他目標,還想要引誘你跟隨他們。我已經多次警告你要防備這些人了;可悲的是,我必須再一次警告你。這些人所想走的是安逸的巷弄。他們憎恨基督的十字架,但是那條安逸的巷弄卻是死巷。

— 腓立比書三章17-19節前半
