Galatians 5:2-12 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
2 Mark my words! I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be circumcised,1 Christ will be of no value to you at all. 3 Again I declare to every man who lets himself be circumcised that he is obligated to obey the whole law.2 4 You who are trying to be justified by law3 have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace.4 5 But by faith we eagerly await through the Spirit the righteousness for which we hope.5 6 For in Christ Jesus6 neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value.7 The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.8 7 You were running a good race.9 Who cut in on you10 and kept you from obeying the truth? 8 That kind of persuasion does not come from the one who calls you.11 9 "A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough."12 10 I am confident13 in the Lord that you will take no other view.14 The one who is throwing you into confusion15 will pay the penalty, whoever he may be. 11 Brothers, if I am still preaching circumcision, why am I still being persecuted?16 In that case the offense17 of the cross has been abolished. 12 As for those agitators,18 I wish they would go the whole way and emasculate themselves!
