Galatians 5

1. Therefore in this freedom for which Christ made us free, stand firm on, and never again be yoked with slavery and its entanglement .
2. Behold I Paulus [Paul] affirm to you, that if you are circumcised, Christ to you will be of no use .
3. I call to witness again to everyone who is circumcised, that he is a debtor to the entire law to observe it [all].
4. It is of no force to you who have separated from the Christ; whoever by the law is justified has fallen from grace.
5. For we through the Spirit of faith have hope, eagerly waiting for our justification .
6. [For] in Christ Jesus, no circumcision has any force neither does uncircumcision; rather faith active [and working] through love.
7. You were running well ; who held you back not to be persuaded by the truth?
8. Such persuasion is not from him who called you.
9. A little leaven completely leavens the whole mass .
10. I am confident concerning you by the Lord; because you are not of a different thought ; and he who is troubling you, shall bear his condemnation , whoever he may be .
11. Moreover my brethren, if I yet still preach circumcision, why still am I persecuted ? For therefore, the opposition against the cross would have ceased.
12. It is fruitless therefore, to wish that he be cut off and be driven out from [among] you; [that is unsettling you].
13. For unto freedom were you called brethren, only do not make this liberty into an opportunity for the flesh , but [rather], through love, serve one another.
14. For all the law in one word is fulfilled, in this: ye shall love [he that is] your neighbour [even, the same] as yourself.
15. But if however, you bite and devour one another, beware lest by one another you be destroyed .
16. So I say, walk in the Spirit, and you shall not [henceforth] fulfill the lust of the flesh .
17. For the flesh is set against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and they are set in opposition to each other , so that you do not do what you should do.
18. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
19. But, evident are the works of the flesh; which are adultery, prostitution , uncleanliness, licentiousness .
20. Idolatry, sorcery , hatred, strife, zealotry , wrath, partisanship , rebellion , heresies,
21. Envies, murders, drunkenness, debaucheries , and things like these, which I say beforehand to you; even so I forewarn that those that are of this sort and habitually practice them, they shall not partake in the kingdom of God.
22. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering , kindness, uprightness , faith,
23. Meekness, temperance , against those of this sort, there is no law.
24. For those who are of Christ, [have] crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts .
25. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in line with the Spirit.
26. Let us not be vainglorious with one another, provoking and envying one another.
