1 Brethren, even if a man be over taken in any trespass, ye the spiritual, restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness; looking to thyself, lest thou also be tempted. 2 Bear the burdens of one another, and so fulfill the law of the Christ. 3 For if one thinketh himself to be something, being nothing, he deceiveth himself. 4 But let each prove his own :work, and then shall he have the glorying for himself alone, and not of the other. 5 For each shall bear his own :burden. 6 But let him that is taught in the word share in all good things with him that teacheth. 7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 Because who soweth unto his own :flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but who soweth unto the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap eternal life. 9 And let us not be weary in the well doing: for in its own season we shall reap, if we faint not. 10 So then, as we have †opportunity, let us work the good toward all, and especially toward them of the household of the faith.
11 See with how large letters I have written you with my own hand. 12 As many as desire to make a fair show in the flesh, compel you to be circumcised; only that they be not persecuted for the cross of :Christ Jesus. 13 For not even who receive circumcision keep the law themselves; but they desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your :flesh. 14 But far be it from me to glory, save in the cross of our :Lord Jesus Christ, through †which the world hath been 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 upon them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of :God.
17 Henceforth let no one trouble me; for I bear on my :body the marks of :Jesus.
18 The grace of our :Lord Jesus Christ be with your :spirit, brethren. Amen.
