8 And being found in fashion fashion: or habit as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
English Standard Version
8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
8 Having become human, he stayed human. It was an incredibly humbling process. He didn't claim special privileges. Instead, he lived a selfless, obedient life and then died a selfless, obedient death - and the worst kind of death at that: a crucifixion.
New King James Version
8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.
New Living Translation
8 he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal's death on a cross.
The example of our Lord Jesus Christ is set before us. We must resemble him in his life, if we would have the benefit of his death. Notice the two natures of Christ; his Divine nature, and human nature. Who being in the form of God, partaking the Divine nature, as the eternal and only-begotten Son of God, John 5:23. Here we see such motives to self-denying love as nothing else can supply. Do we thus love and obey the Son of God?
