1: Christ has truly made us free: then keep your free condition and let no man put a yoke on you again. 2: See, I Paul say to you, that if you undergo circumcision, Christ will be of no use to you. 3: Yes, I give witness again to every man who undergoes circumcision, that he will have to keep all the law. 4: You are cut off from Christ, you who would have righteousness by the law; you are turned away from grace. 5: For we through the Spirit by faith are waiting for the hope of righteousness. 6: Because in Christ Jesus, having circumcision or not having circumcision are equally of no profit; but only faith working through love. 7: You were going on well; who was the cause of your not giving ear to what is true? 8: This ready belief did not come from him who had made you his. 9: A little leaven makes a change in all the mass. 10: I am certain about you in the Lord, that you will be of no other mind; but he who is troubling you will have his punishment, whoever he is. 11: But I, brothers, if I am still preaching circumcision, why am I still attacked? then has the shame of the cross been taken away. 12: My desire is that they who give you trouble might even be cut off themselves. 13: Because you, brothers, were marked out to be free; only do not make use of your free condition to give the flesh its chance, but through love be servants one to another. 14: For all the law is made complete in one word, even in this, Have love for your neighbour as for yourself. 15: But if you are given to fighting with one another, take care that you are not the cause of destruction one to another. 16: But I say, Go on in the Spirit, and you will not come under the rule of the evil desires of the flesh. 17: For the flesh has desires against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; because these are opposite the one to the other; so that you may not do the things which you have a mind to do. 18: But if you are guided by the Spirit, you are not under the law. 19: Now the works of the flesh are clear, which are these: evil desire, unclean things, wrong use of the senses, 20: Worship of images, use of strange powers, hates, fighting, desire for what another has, angry feelings, attempts to get the better of others, divisions, false teachings, 21: Envy, uncontrolled drinking and feasting, and such things: of which I give you word clearly, even as I did in the past, that they who do such things will have no part in the kingdom of God. 22: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, a quiet mind, kind acts, well-doing, faith, 23: Gentle behaviour, control over desires: against such there is no law. 24: And those who are Christ's have put to death on the cross the flesh with its passions and its evil desires. 25: If we are living by the Spirit, by the Spirit let us be guided. 26: Let us not be full of self-glory, making one another angry, having envy of one another.
