Galatians 2:9-19 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
9 and recognizing 1the grace that had been given to me, a2James and 3Cephas and John, who were 4reputed to be 5pillars, gave to me and 6Barnabas the 7right bhand of fellowship, so that we might 8go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised. 10 They only asked us to remember the poor -9the very thing I also was eager to do.

Peter (Cephas) Opposed by Paul

11 But when 10Cephas came to 11Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he cstood condemned. 12 For prior to the coming of certain men from d12James, he used to 13eat with the Gentiles; but when they came, he began to withdraw and hold himself aloof, 14fearing ethe party of the circumcision. 13 The rest of the Jews joined him in hypocrisy, with the result that even 15Barnabas was carried away by their hypocrisy. 14 But when I saw that they 16were not fstraightforward about 17the truth of the gospel, I said to 18Cephas in the presence of all, "If you, being a Jew, 19live like the Gentiles and not like the Jews, how is it that you compel the Gentiles to live like Jews? g 15 "We are 20Jews by nature and not 21sinners from among the Gentiles; 16 nevertheless knowing that 22a man is not justified by the works of hthe Law but through faith in Christ Jesus, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, so that we may be justified by 23faith in Christ and not by the works of ithe Law; since 24by the works of jthe Law no kflesh will be justified. 17 "But if, while seeking to be justified in Christ, we ourselves have also been found 25sinners, is Christ then a minister of sin? 26May it never be! 18 "For if I rebuild what I have once destroyed, I 27prove myself to be a transgressor. 19 "For through lthe Law I 28died to mthe Law, so that I might live to God.
