fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
2Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you
3For I testify again to every man
that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.
is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
5For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.
6For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision;
but faith which worketh by love.
7Ye did run
well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?
persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you.
little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.
have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment,
whosoever he be.
11And I, brethren, if I yet
preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer persecution? then is the offence of the cross ceased.
12I would they were even cut off which trouble you.
13For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an

20Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions,
21Envyings, murders, drunkenness,

23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
24And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
25If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk
in the Spirit.
26Let us not be desirous of
vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
