Weymouth New Testament (WNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Brethren, if anybody be detected in any misconduct, you who are spiritual should restore such a one in a spirit of meekness. And let each of you keep watch over himself, lest he also fall into temptation. 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 Always carry one another's burdens, and so obey the whole of Christ's Law. 2 Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
3 For if there is any one who thinks himself to be somebody when he is nobody, he is deluding himself. 3 If anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself.
4 But let every man scrutinize his own conduct, and then he will find out, not with reference to another but with reference to himself, what he has to boast of. 4 Each one should test his own actions. Then he can take pride in himself, without comparing himself to somebody else,
5 For every man will have to carry his own load. 5 for each one should carry his own load.
6 But let those who receive instruction in Christian truth share with their instructors all temporal blessings. 6 Anyone who receives instruction in the word must share all good things with his instructor.
7 Do not deceive yourselves. God is not to be scoffed at. For whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. 7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.
8 He who sows in the field of his lower nature, will from that nature reap destruction; but he who sows to serve the Spirit will from the Spirit reap the Life of the Ages. 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 Let us not abate our courage in doing what is right; for in due time we shall reap a reward, if we do not faint. 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 opportunity, let us labour for the good of all, and especially of those who belong to the household 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 in what large letters I am writing to you with my own hand. 11 See what large letters I use as I write to you with my own hand!
12 All who desire to display their zeal for external observances try to compel you to receive circumcision, but their real object is simply to escape being persecuted for 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 For these very men do not really keep the Law of Moses, but they would have you receive circumcision in order that they may glory in *your* bodies. 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 as for me, God forbid that I should glory in anything except the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, upon which the world is crucified to me, and I am crucified to the world. 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 neither circumcision nor uncircumcision is of any importance; but only a renewed nature. 15 Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is a new creation.
16 And all who shall regulate their lives by this principle--may peace and mercy be given to them--and to the true Israel of God. 16 Peace and mercy to all who follow this rule, even to the Israel of God.
17 From this time onward let no one trouble me; for, as for me, I bear, branded on my body, the scars of Jesus as my Master. 17 Finally, let no one cause me trouble, for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus.
18 May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirits, brethren. Amen. 18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers. Amen.
