Look at what large letters I have written to you in my own handwriting.
Those who want to make a good showing in the flesh are the ones who would compel you to be circumcised-but only to avoid being persecuted for the cross of Christ.
For even the circumcised don't keep the law themselves; however, they want you to be circumcised in order to boast about your flesh.
But as for me, I will never boast about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
For both circumcision and uncircumcision mean nothing; [what matters] instead is a new creation.
May peace be on all those who follow this standard, and mercy also be on the Israel of God!
From now on, let no one cause me trouble, because I carry the marks of Jesus on my body.
Brothers, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
