Philippians 2:6 YLT who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal to God,
ὑπάρχων (hyparchōn) Strong's 5225: To begin, am, exist, be in possession. From hupo and archomai; to begin under, i.e. Come into existence; expletively, to exist (verb)
There seems to be a similar meaning found in 1 Corinthians 11:7 YLT
for a man, indeed, ought not to cover the head, being the image and glory of God, and a woman is the glory of a man,
Does the meaning of the word convey eternal existence, or is there a beginning where someone or something comes to existence?
Is the a textual justification for translating the words with the added “although He existed.” like the Amplified and NASB bibles show?
