1 Brethren, if anyone is overtaken in a fault, ye who are spiritual restore such a one in the spirit of meekness, considering thyself lest thou also be tempted. 2 Bear ye one another's burdens and so fulfil the law of the Christ. 3 For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. 4 But let everyone prove his own work, and then he shall have glory regarding only himself, and not in another. 5 For everyone shall bear his own burden.
6 Let the one that is taught in the word communicate unto the one that teaches in all good things. 7 Do not deceive yourselves; God is not mocked: for whatever a man sows that shall he also reap. 8 For he that sows to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption, but he that sows in the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap eternal life. 9 And let us not be weary in well doing, for in due season we shall reap if we faint not. 10 Therefore as long as we have the opportunity, let us do good unto everyone, especially unto those who are of the household of faith.
11 Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with my own hand. 12 As many as desire to please in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised, only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of the Christ. 13 For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law, but desire to have you circumcised that they may glory in your flesh. 14 But in no wise should I glory, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. 15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision avails any thing nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. 16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.
