11See with whatlargeletters I aam writing to you 1with my ownhand.
12Thosewhodesire2to make a goodshowing in the flesh try to 3compel you to be circumcised, simplyso that they 4will not be persecutedbfor the cross of Christ.
For those who care circumcised do not even5keepdthe Lawthemselves, but they desire to have you circumcisedso that they may 6boast in your flesh.
But 7may it never be that I would boast, 8except in the cross of our LordJesusChrist, 9throughewhich the world has been crucified to me, and 10I to the world.
For 11neither is circumcisionanything, noruncircumcision, but a 12newfcreation.
And thosewho will gwalk by thisrule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the 13Israel of God.
From now on let noonecausetrouble for me, for I bear on my body the 14brand-marks of Jesus.
1815The grace of our LordJesusChrist be 16with your spirit, 17brethren. Amen.
