Philippians 2:5-11 ALT
(5) Indeed, be letting the frame of mind [or, attitude] be in you* which [was] also in Christ Jesus, (6) who existing in the nature of God, did not consider being equal to God something to be held onto, (7) _but_ He emptied Himself, having taken the nature of a slave, having come to be in the likeness of people, (8) and having been found in appearance as a person, He humbled Himself, having become obedient to the point of death-even of death of a cross. (9) And so God highly exalted Him [or, put Him in the most important position] and gave to Him a Name, the [Name] above every name, (10) so that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, of heavenly [ones] and of earthly [ones] and of [ones] under the earth, (11) and every tongue [fig., person] shall confess that Jesus Christ [is] Lord to [the] glory of God [the] Father! [cp. Isaiah 45:23]

Philippians 2:5-11 NWT
. . ."Keep this mental attitude in you that was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, although he was existing in God's form, gave no consideration to a seizure, namely, that he should be equal to God. 7 No, but he emptied himself and took a slave's form and came to be in the likeness of men. 8 More than that, when he found himself in fashion as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient as far as death, yes, death on a torture stake. 9 For this very reason also God exalted him to a superior position and kindly gave him the name that is above every [other] name, 10 so that in the name of Jesus every knee should bend of those in heaven and those on earth and those under the ground, 11 and every tongue should openly acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father." [cp. Isaiah 45:23]

Philippians 2:5-11 ESV
(5) Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, (6) who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, (7) but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. (8) And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. (9) Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, (10) so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, (11) and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. [cp. Isaiah 45:23]

Philippians 2:5-11 BBE
(5) Let this mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus, (6) To whom, though himself in the form of God, it did not seem that to take for oneself was to be like God; (7) But he made himself as nothing, taking the form of a servant, being made like men; (8) And being seen in form as a man, he took the lowest place, and let himself be put to death, even the death of the cross. (9) For this reason God has put him in the highest place and has given to him the name which is greater than every name; (10) So that at the name of Jesus every knee may be bent, of those in heaven and those on earth and those in the underworld, (11) And that every tongue may give witness that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. [cp. Isaiah 45:23]

Considering several translations gives the benefit of the understanding of several translation committees or individuals.
