11 See with what large letters I am writing to you 1with my own hand.
12 Those who desire 2to make a good showing in the flesh try to 3compel you to be circumcised, simply so that they 4will not be persecuted for the cross of Christ.
13 For those who are circumcised do not even 5keep the Law themselves, but they desire to have you circumcised so that they may 6boast in your flesh.
14 But 7may it never be that I would boast, 8except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, 9through which the world has been crucified to me, and 10I to the world.
16 And those who will walk by this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the 13Israel of God.
17 From now on let no one cause trouble for me, for I bear on my body the 14brand-marks of Jesus.
18 15The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be 16with your spirit, 17brethren. Amen.
