Galatians 2:6-16 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
6 But from those who awere of high 1reputation (what they were makes no difference to me; 2God bshows no partiality )-well, those who were of reputation contributed nothing to me. 7 But on the contrary, seeing that I had been 3entrusted with the 4gospel cto the uncircumcised, just as 5Peter had been dto the circumcised 8 (for He who effectually worked for Peter in his 6apostleship eto the circumcised effectually worked for me also to the Gentiles ), 9 and recognizing 7the grace that had been given to me, f8James and 9Cephas and John, who were 10reputed to be 11pillars, gave to me and 12Barnabas the 13right ghand of fellowship, so that we might 14go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised. 10 They only asked us to remember the poor -15the very thing I also was eager to do.

Peter (Cephas) Opposed by Paul

11 But when 16Cephas came to 17Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he hstood condemned. 12 For prior to the coming of certain men from i18James, he used to 19eat with the Gentiles; but when they came, he began to withdraw and hold himself aloof, 20fearing jthe party of the circumcision. 13 The rest of the Jews joined him in hypocrisy, with the result that even 21Barnabas was carried away by their hypocrisy. 14 But when I saw that they 22were not kstraightforward about 23the truth of the gospel, I said to 24Cephas in the presence of all, "If you, being a Jew, 25live like the Gentiles and not like the Jews, how is it that you compel the Gentiles to live like Jews? l 15 "We are 26Jews by nature and not 27sinners from among the Gentiles; 16 nevertheless knowing that 28a man is not justified by the works of mthe Law but through faith in Christ Jesus, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, so that we may be justified by 29faith in Christ and not by the works of nthe Law; since 30by the works of othe Law no pflesh will be justified.
