1 Brethren, if indeed a man may be overtaken in some transgression, you who are spiritual, perfect such an one in the spirit of meekness; watching yourself, lest you may also be tempted. 2 Bear the burdens of one another, and so fulfill the law of Christ. 3 For if any one seems to be something, being nothing, he deceives himself. 4 But let each one prove his own work, and then he shall have rejoicing to himself alone, and not to another; 5 for each one shall bear his own responsibility.
6 But let the one who is taught the word communicate to the one teaching in all good things. 7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked. For whatsoever a man may sow, that shall he also reap: 8 because the one sowing to his own flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but the one sowing to the Spirit, shall of the Spirit reap eternal life. 9 But let us not get weary doing that which is good: for in due time we will reap, fainting not. 10 Then therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.
11 You see with how large letters I have written unto you with my own hand. 12 So many as wish to make a fair show in the flesh, these compel you to be circumcised; only that they do not suffer persecution on account of the cross of Christ. 13 For neither do those who are circumcised keep the law; but they wish you to be circumcised, in order that they may glory in your flesh. 14 But it would be impossible for me to glory, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world: 15 for neither is circumcision anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. 16 And so many as shall walk by this rule, peace and mercy be unto them, and unto the Israel of God.
