Galatians 5:11; Galatians 6:12; Galatians 6:14
And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer persecution ? then is the offence of the cross ceased .
As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised ; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.
But God forbid that I should glory , save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.
