1 Christ has set you free with freedom, Therefore stand, and be not again entangled with the yoke of bondage. 2 Behold I Paul say unto you, that, if you may be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. 3 And again I witness to every man who is circumcised, that he is debtor to do the whole law. 4 You have been divorced from Christ, whosoever are justified by law: you have fallen from grace. 5 For we through the Spirit do await the hope of righteousness through faith. 6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision or uncircumcision avails anything; but faith working through divine love.
7 You were running well; who did hinder you that you should not obey the truth? 8 The persuasion is not of the one calling you. 9 A little leaven leavens the whole lump. 10 I have confidence in reference to you in the Lord, that you shall be none otherwise minded: but the one troubling you shall bear the judgment, whosoever he may be. 11 But I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I still suffer persecution? then the offence of the cross would be done away. 12 I would that those troubling you shall indeed cut themselves off.
13 For you were called unto liberty, brethren; only use not the liberty unto an occasion to the flesh, but through divine love serve one another. 14 For the whole law has been fulfilled in one word, in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbor with divine love as thyself. 15 But if you bite and devour one another, take heed that you may not be consumed one of another.
16 And I say, Walk about in the Spirit, and do not perfect the lust of carnality. 17 For carnality wars against the Spirit, and the Spirit against carnality; for these are antagonistical to one another; so that you may not do the things which you may wish. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law.
19 But the works of carnality are manifest, which are fornication, uncleanness, debauchery, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, animosities, selfseekings, divisions, heresies, 21 envyings, drunkenness, revellings, and things like unto these: which I tell you beforehand, as I did previously say to you, that those doing such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is divine love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, 23 meekness, holiness; against such things there is no law. 24 But those belonging to Christ Jesus have crucified carnality with the passions and lusts. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 Let us not be fond of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
