1 And brothers, if a man is overtaken in some transgression, ye the spiritual, restore such in a spirit of meekness, looking to thyself lest thou also be tempted.
1 (A)Brethren, even if (a)anyone is caught in any trespass, you who are (B)spiritual, (C)restore such a one (D)in a spirit of gentleness; each one looking to yourself, so that you too will not be tempted.
1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
1 Brothers, if a person is caught doing something wrong, those of you who are spiritual should restore that person gently. Watch out for yourself so that you are not tempted as well.
2 Bear the burdens of each other, and so fulfill the law of the Christ.
2 Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
2 Practice carrying each other's burdens. In this way you will fulfill the law of the Messiah.
3 For if some man presumes to be something when he is nothing, he deceives himself.
3 For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.
3 For if anyone thinks he is something when he is really nothing, he is only fooling himself.
4 But let each man examine his own work, and then he will have the boast in himself alone and not in the other man.
4 But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.
4 Each person must examine his own actions, and then he can boast about his own accomplishments and not about someone else.
6 But let him who is taught in the word share in all good things with him who teaches.
6 Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.
6 The person who is taught the word should share all his goods with his teacher.
7 Be not misled, God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows this he will also reap.
7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
7 Don’t be deceived: God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows he will also reap,
7 Stop being deceived; God is not to be ridiculed. A person harvests whatever he plants:
8 Because he who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.
8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
8 The person who sows through human means will harvest decay from human means, but the person who sows in the Spirit will harvest eternal life from the Spirit.
9 And let us not be weary doing good, for in our own time we will reap, not desponding.
9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
9 Let's not get tired of doing what is good, for at the right time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
10 So then as we have time, let us work what is good toward all men, and especially toward those belonging to a household of the faith.
10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
10 So then, whenever we have the opportunity, let's practice doing good to everyone, especially to the family of faith.
11 See in how large letters I wrote to you with my hand.
11 Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand.
11 Look at what large letters I use as I write to you in my own handwriting.
11 Look at how large these letters are because I am writing with my own hand!
12 As many as desire to make a good impression in flesh, these compel you to be circumcised, only so that they may not be persecuted for the cross of the Christ.
12 As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.
12 These people who want to impress others by their external appearance are trying to force you to be circumcised, simply to avoid being persecuted for the cross of the Messiah.
13 For not even those who have been circumcised themselves keep law, but they want you to be circumcised, so that they may boast in thy flesh.
13 For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh.
13 Why, not even those who are circumcised obey the Law! They simply want you to be circumcised so that they can boast about your external appearance.
14 But may it not be from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
14 But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.
14 But as for me, I will never boast about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. The world has been crucified to me through the cross, and I to the world.
14 But may I never boast about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus, the Messiah, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world!
15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision avails anything nor uncircumcision, but a new creation.
15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.
15 For neither circumcision nor uncircumcision matters. Rather, what matters is being a new creation.
16 And as many as will march by this standard, peace upon them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.
16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.
16 Now may peace be on all those who live by this principle, and may mercy be on the Israel of God.
17 Finally, let no man cause troubles for me, for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.
17 From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.
17 Let no one make any more trouble for me, because I carry the scars of Jesus on my own body.
18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ is with your spirit, brothers. Truly.
18 Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
18 May the grace of our Lord Jesus, the Messiah, be with your spirit, brothers! Amen.
