1 Brethren, even if a man be caught in any trespass, ye who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of meekness; considering yourself, lest you also be tempted. 2 Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. 3 For, if any one thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. 4 But let each one prove his own work, and then will he have ground of glorying in respect to himself alone, and not to another. 5 For each one shall bear his own load.
6 But let him who is being taught in the word share with him who is teaching, in all good things. 7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked; for whatsoever a man sows, the same shall be also reap; 8 because he that sows to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that sows to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life eternal. 9 And, in doing what is noble, let us not grow weary; for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. 10 So, then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all men, but especially to those of the household of the faith.
11 See with what large letters I wrote to you with my own hand. 12 As many as wish to make a fair show in the flesh, these constrain you to be circumcised, only that they may not suffer persecution for the cross of Christ. 13 For neither do those themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but they wish you to be circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh. 14 But it could not be that I should glory, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has become crucified to me, and I to the world. 15 For neither is circumcision anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation. 16 And as many as shall walk by this rule, peace be upon them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.
