Philippians 2:3

Context
2:3 Instead of being motivated by selfish ambition 1  or vanity, each of you should, in humility, be moved to treat one another as more important than yourself.

James 3:14

Context
3:14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfishness in your hearts, do not boast and tell lies against the truth.

1 tn Grk “not according to selfish ambition.” There is no main verb in this verse; the subjunctive φρονῆτε (fronhte, “be of the same mind”) is implied here as well. Thus, although most translations supply the verb “do” at the beginning of v. 3 (e.g., “do nothing from selfish ambition”), the idea is even stronger than that: “Don’t even think any thoughts motivated by selfish ambition.”
