  • 1So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.
  • 2Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
  • 3Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.
  • 4For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.
  • 5Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
  • 6For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.
  • 7For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.
  • 8Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?
  • 9This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you.
  • 10A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.
  • 11I 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.
  • 12And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer persecution? then is the offence of the cross ceased.
  • 13I would they were even cut off which trouble you.
  • 14For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
  • 15For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
  • 16But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.
  • 17This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
  • 18For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
  • 19But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
  • 20Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
  • 21Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
  • 22Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
  • 23But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
  • 24Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
  • 25And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
  • 26If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
