1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in any fault, do ye, who are spiritual, restore such a one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, least thou also shouldst be tempted. 2 Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. 3 For if any one thinketh that he is something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself. 4 But let every one try his own work, and then he will have matter of glorying in himself alone, and not in another. 5 For every one shall bear his own burthen.
6 And let him, that is instructed in the word, communicate in all good things to him that instructeth. 7 Be not deceived, God is not to be mocked: for whatever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 He then, who soweth to his flesh, shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he, that soweth to the Spirit, shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. 9 And let us not be weary in doing good: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. 10 And therefore as we have opportunity, let us do good to all men, but especially to those who are of the houshold of faith.
11 Ye see in how large letters I have written to you with my own hand. 12 They, who want to make a fair appearance in the flesh, would constrain you to be circumcised; only that they may not be persecuted for the cross of Christ. 13 For they, who are circumcised, do not themselves keep the law: but they would have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh. 14 But God forbid that I should glory, unless in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified to me, and I to the world. 15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but being created anew. 16 And as many as shall walk according to this rule, peace and mercy be on them, even upon all the Israel of God.
