1: Christ has set us free in freedom; stand fast therefore, and be not held again in a yoke of bondage. 2: Behold, I, Paul, say to you, that if ye are circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. 3: And I witness again to every man [who is] circumcised, that he is debtor to do the whole law. 4: Ye are deprived of all profit from the Christ as separated [from him], as many as are justified by law; ye have fallen from grace. 5: For we, by [the] Spirit, on the principle of faith, await the hope of righteousness. 6: For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision has any force, nor uncircumcision; but faith working through love. 7: Ye ran well; who has stopped you that ye should not obey the truth? 8: The persuasibleness [is] not of him that calls you. 9: A little leaven leavens the whole lump. 10: I have confidence as to you in [the] Lord, that ye will have no other mind; and he that is troubling you shall bear the guilt [of it], whosoever he may be. 11: But I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why am I yet persecuted? Then the scandal of the cross has been done away. 12: I would that they would even cut themselves off who throw you into confusion. 13: For ye have been called to liberty, brethren; only [do] not [turn] liberty into an opportunity to the flesh, but by love serve one another. 14: For the whole law is fulfilled in one word, in Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself; 15: but if ye bite and devour one another, see that ye are not consumed one of another. 16: But I say, Walk in [the] Spirit, and ye shall no way fulfil flesh's lust. 17: For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these things are opposed one to the other, that ye should not do those things which ye desire; 18: but if ye are led by the Spirit, ye are not under law. 19: Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are fornication, uncleanness, licentiousness, 20: idolatry, sorcery, hatred, strifes, jealousies, angers, contentions, disputes, schools of opinion, 21: envyings, murders, drunkennesses, revels, and things like these; as to which I tell you beforehand, even as I also have said before, that they who do such things shall not inherit God's kingdom. 22: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, fidelity, 23: meekness, self-control: against such things there is no law. 24: But they that [are] of the Christ have crucified the flesh with the passions and the lusts. 25: If we live by the Spirit, let us walk also by the Spirit. 26: Let us not become vain-glorious, provoking one another, envying one another.
