“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,”
King James Version (KJV)
3:13 I do not account myself to have apprehended this already; to be already possessed of perfect holiness.
Php 3:13 I count not myself to have apprehended. The prize is yet before. Constant effort is still required. This one thing [I do]. His whole life is given to one purpose. Forgetting those things which are behind. Especially the things which he once counted gain (Php 3:7), and even all the hardships and sufferings of the apostolic lot. And reaching forth unto those things which are before. The image is of one so eager for what is before him that hands and body are stretched to lay hold of it.
