Phil 2:5 Let this same attitude and purpose and [humble] mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus: [Let Him be your example in humility:]
6 Who, although being essentially one with God and in the form of God [possessing the fullness of the attributes which make God God], did not think this equality with God was a thing to be eagerly grasped or retained,
7 But stripped Himself [of all privileges and rightful dignity], so as to assume the guise of a servant (slave), in that He became like men and was born a human being.
8 And after He had appeared in human form, He abased and humbled Himself [still further] and carried His obedience to the extreme of death, even the death of the cross!
9 Therefore [because He stooped so low] God has highly exalted Him and has freely bestowed on Him the name that is above every name,
10 That in (at) the name of Jesus every knee should (must) bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 And every tongue [frankly and openly] confess and acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. AMP

8 He humbled himself and became vulnerable, choosing to be revealed as a man and was obedient. He was a perfect example, even in his deatha criminals death by crucifixion!
9 Because of that obedience, God exalted him and multiplied his greatness! He has now been given the greatest of all names!
10 The authority of the name of Jesus causes every knee to bow in reverence! Everything and everyone will one day submit to this namein the heavenly realm, in the earthly realm, and in the demonic realm.
11 And every tongue will proclaim in every language: Jesus Christ is Lord Yahweh, bringing glory and honor to God, his Father! TPT
