Interpretation: Paul warns the Philippians to watch out for the "dogs", the "evildoers" and those who "mutilate the flesh". He does so because of the Christian identity, as people who "worship by the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh". We are different from those people, and so need to watch out for them. Paul himself puts no confidence in the flesh, even though if anyone has reason to do so, it would be him, given his credentials. But he chooses not to, and instructs the Philippians to likewise put no confiedence in the flesh. Application: (i) Remembering the saving work done in us to enable us to come to the faith; being thankful that we are part of God's family. (ii) Having confidence that God holds true to his promises, hence we should be at ease as we fully place our trust in our Heavenly Father.

Finally, my brothers, rejoice in the Lord.
To write the same things to you is no trouble to me and is safe for you.
series
Look out for the dogs,
look out for the evildoers,
look out for those who mutilate the flesh.
For we are the circumcision,
who worship by the Spirit of God
and glory in Christ Jesus
and put no confidence in the flesh--
though I myself have reason for confidence in the flesh also.
If anyone else thinks he has reason for confidence in the flesh, I have more:
circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; as to the law, a Pharisee; as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; as to righteousness under the law, blameless.
