Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 Brothers, if a man is taken in any wrongdoing, you who are of the Spirit will put such a one right in a spirit of love; keeping watch on yourself, for fear that you yourself may be tested. 1 Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted.
2 Take on yourselves one another's troubles, and so keep the law of Christ. 2 Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
3 For if a man has an idea that he is something when he is nothing, he is tricked by himself. 3 If anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself.
4 But let every man make test of his work, and then will his cause for glory be in himself only, and not in his neighbour. 4 Each one should test his own actions. Then he can take pride in himself, without comparing himself to somebody else,
5 Because every man is responsible for his part of the work. 5 for each one should carry his own load.
6 But let him who gets teaching in the word give a part in all good things to his teacher. 6 Anyone who receives instruction in the word must share all good things with his instructor.
7 Be not tricked; God is not made sport of: for whatever seed a man puts in, that will he get back as grain. 7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.
8 Because he who puts in the seed of the flesh will of the flesh get the reward of death; but he who puts in the seed of the Spirit will of the Spirit get the reward of eternal life. 8 The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.
9 And let us not get tired of well-doing; for at the right time we will get in the grain, if we do not give way to weariness. 9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
10 So then, as we have the chance, let us do good to all men, and specially to those who are of the family of the faith. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
11 See the size of the handwriting which I myself have made use of in writing to you. 11 See what large letters I use as I write to you with my own hand!
12 Those who have the desire to seem important in the flesh, put force on you to undergo circumcision; only that they may not be attacked because of the cross of Christ. 12 Those who want to make a good impression outwardly are trying to compel you to be circumcised. The only reason they do this is to avoid being persecuted for the cross of Christ.
13 Because even those who undergo circumcision do not themselves keep the law; but they would have you undergo circumcision, so that they may have glory in your flesh. 13 Not even those who are circumcised obey the law, yet they want you to be circumcised that they may boast about your flesh.
14 But far be it from me to have glory in anything, but only in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which this world has come to an end on the cross for me, and I for it. 14 May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
15 For having circumcision is nothing, and not having circumcision is nothing, but only a new order of existence. 15 Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is a new creation.
16 And on all who are guided by this rule be peace and mercy, and on the Israel of God. 16 Peace and mercy to all who follow this rule, even to the Israel of God.
17 From this time on let no man be a trouble to me; because my body is marked with the marks of Jesus. 17 Finally, let no one cause me trouble, for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus.
18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers. So be it. 18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers. Amen.
