Walk by the Spirit

1 1It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore 2keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a 3yoke of slavery.
2 Behold I, 4Paul, say to you that if you receive 5circumcision, Christ will be of no benefit to you.
3 And I 6testify again to every man who receives 7circumcision, that he is under obligation to 8keep the whole Law.
4 You have been severed from Christ, you who are seeking to be justified by law; you have 9fallen from grace.
5 For we through the Spirit, by faith, are 10waiting for the hope of righteousness.
7 You were 14running well; who hindered you from obeying the truth?
8 This persuasion did not come from 15Him who calls you.
9 16A little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough.
10 17I have confidence in you in the Lord that you 18will adopt no other view; but the one who is 19disturbing you will bear his judgment, whoever * he is.
12 I wish that 22those who are troubling you would even 23mutilate themselves.
