and are confident that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness,
a acorrector of the foolish, a teacher of bthe immature, having in the Law1the embodiment of knowledge and of the truth,
you, therefore, 2who teachanother, do you not teachyourself? You who cpreach that one shall not steal, do you steal?
You who say that one should not commitadultery, do you commitadultery? You who abhoridols, do you 3robtemples?
You who4boastdin the Law, through your breaking the Law, do you dishonorGod?
For "5THE NAME OF GOD IS BLASPHEMEDAMONG THE GENTILES6BECAUSE OF YOU," just as it is written.
For indeedcircumcision is of valueif you 7practiceethe Law; but if you are a transgressorfof the Law, 8your circumcision has becomeuncircumcision.
269Soif10the guncircumcisedman11keeps the requirements of the Law, will not his uncircumcision be regarded as circumcision?
And 12he who is physicallyuncircumcised, if he keeps the Law, will he not 13judge you whohthough having the letter of the Law and circumcision are a transgressoriof the Law?
For 14he is not a Jewwho is one outwardly , nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh.
But 15he is a Jewwho is one inwardly; and 16circumcision is that which is of the heart, by the 17Spirit, not by the letter; 18and his praise is not from men, but from God.
