Nevertheless, to what we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.

Philippians 3:16 Parallel
CommentaryVincent's Word Studies
Rev., only. Notwithstanding the minor points in which you may be otherwise minded.
Whereto we have already attained (εἰς ὃ ἐφθάσαμεν)
Whatever real christian and moral attainment you may have made, let that serve as a rule for your further advance. The character of this standard of attainment is illustrated by the words in Philippians 3:15, be thus minded, and by those in Philippians 3:17, as ye have us for an example. The individual variations are not considered. He regards rather the collective development, and assumes the essentials of christian attainment on the part of his readers. For attained, see on we are come, 2 Corinthians 10:14.
Let us walk by the same rule (τῷ αὐτῷ στοιχεῖν)
The idea of a regulative standard is implied, but rule κανόνι must be omitted from the Greek text. Rev. brings out the antithesis better: whereunto we have already attained, by that same rule let us walk. Omit let us mind the same thing.
