          3 For if any man reputes himself to be something, being nothing, he deceives himself;

              References for Galatians 6:5

                • e 6:5 - The words for 'burden' in vers. 2 and 5 are different; ver. 2 is the same as Matt. 20.12; ver. 5 as Matt. 11.30.
                  6 Let him that is taught in the word communicate to him that teaches in all good things.
                  7 Be not deceived: God is not mocked; for whatever a man shall sow, that also shall he reap.
                  8 For he that sows to his own flesh, shall reap corruption from the flesh; but he that sows to the Spirit, from the Spirit shall reap eternal life:
                  9 but let us not lose heart in doing good; for in due time, if we do not faint, we shall reap.
                  10 So then, as we have occasion, let us do good towards all, and specially towards those of the household of faith.

                    • f 6:10 - This supposes more positive activity of service than 'doing good,' in ver. 9, which is the character of conduct. 'Let us do good' here is the service and labour in which it is shown.
                      11 See how long a letter I have written to you with my own hand.

                        • g 6:11 - Or perhaps 'in what large letters.' It was long for the apostle to write with his own hand, as he generally dictated to another.
                          12 As many as desire to have a fair appearance in [the] flesh, these compel you to be circumcised, only that they may not be persecuted because of the cross of Christ.

                              13 For neither do they that are circumcised themselves keep the law; but they wish you to be circumcised, that they may boast in your flesh.
                              14 But far be it from me to boast save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom [the] world is crucified to me, and I to the world.

                                  15 For [in Christ Jesus] neither is circumcision anything, nor uncircumcision; but new creation.
                                  16 And as many as shall walk by this rule, peace upon them and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.
