(For he that wrought effectually in Peterto the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in metoward the Gentiles:)
9And when James , Cephas,andJohn,whoseemed to bepillars,perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to meandBarnabas the right hands of fellowship;thatwe should go unto the heathen,andtheyunto the circumcision.10Only they would that we should remember the poor; the samewhichIalso was forward to do .
11ButwhenPeter was cometoAntioch, I withstoodhimto the face,because he was to be blamed .
12Forbefore that certaincamefromJames, he did eatwith the Gentiles:butwhen they were come , he withdrewandseparatedhimself,fearing them which were of the circumcision.13And the otherJewsdissembledlikewise with him;insomuch that Barnabasalso was carried away with theirdissimulation.14Butwhen I sawthat they walkednotuprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peterbefore them all,Ifthou,being a Jew,livest after the manner of Gentiles,andnot as do the Jews,why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews ?
15We who are Jews by nature,andnotsinnersof the Gentiles,16Knowingthat a manisnotjustifiedby the works of the law,butby the faith of JesusChrist,evenwe have believedinJesusChrist,that we might be justifiedby the faith of Christ,andnotby the works of the law:forby the works of the lawshallnoflesh be justified .
17Butif, while we seek to be justifiedbyChrist,weourselvesalso are foundsinners, is thereforeChrist the minister of sin? God forbid .
18Forif I buildagain the thingswhich I destroyed , I makemyself a transgressor.
