1 Brothers, if a man is overtaken in a fault, you the spiritual ones restore such a one in the spirit of meekness, considering yourself, lest you 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 one another's burdens, and so you will fulfill the Law of 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 anyone thinks himself to be something, being 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 one prove his own work, and then he alone will have a boast in himself, and not in another.
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 with the one teaching in all good things.
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 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows, that he also will 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 For he sowing to his flesh will reap corruption from the flesh. But he sowing to the Spirit will reap life everlasting from the Spirit.
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 But we should not lose heart in well-doing, for in due season we shall reap, if we do not faint.
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 good toward all, especially toward those of the household of 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 what large letters I write 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 look well in the flesh, these compel you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of 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 they themselves, having been circumcised, do not even keep the Law, but they desire you to be circumcised so that they may boast in your 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 never be for me to boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is 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 has any strength, 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 walk according to this rule, peace and mercy be upon them 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 For the rest, let no one give troubles to me, for I bear in my body the brands 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 Brothers, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
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.
