Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Brothers, suppose someone is caught doing something wrong. You who have the Spirit should set him right, but in a spirit of humility, keeping an eye on yourselves so that you won't be tempted too. 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 Bear one another's burdens - in this way you will be fulfilling the Torah's true meaning, which the Messiah upholds. 2 Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
3 For if anyone thinks he is something when he is really nothing, he is fooling himself. 3 If anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself.
4 So let each of you scrutinize his own actions. Then if you do find something to boast about, at least the boasting will be based on what you have actually done and not merely on a judgment that you are better than someone else; 4 Each one should test his own actions. Then he can take pride in himself, without comparing himself to somebody else,
5 for each person will carry his own load. 5 for each one should carry his own load.
6 But whoever is being instructed in the Word should share all the good things he has with his instructor. 6 Anyone who receives instruction in the word must share all good things with his instructor.
7 Don't delude yourselves: no one makes a fool of God! A person reaps what he sows. 7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.
8 Those who keep sowing in the field of their old nature, in order to meet its demands, will eventually reap ruin; but those who keep sowing in the field of the Spirit will reap from the Spirit everlasting 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 So let us not grow weary of doing what is good; for if we don't give up, we will in due time reap the harvest. 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 Therefore, as the opportunity arises, let us do what is good to everyone, and especially to the family of those who are trustingly faithful. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
11 Look at the large letters I use as I close in my own handwriting. 11 See what large letters I use as I write to you with my own hand!
12 It is those who want to look good outwardly who are trying to get you to be circumcised. The only reason they are doing it is to escape persecution for preaching about the Messiah's execution-stake. 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 even those who are getting circumcised don't observe the Torah. On the contrary, they want you to get circumcised so that they can boast of having gained your adherence. 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, Heaven forbid that I should boast about anything except the execution-stake of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah! Through him, as far as I am concerned, the world has been put to death on the stake; and through him, as far as the world is concerned, I have been put to death on the stake. 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 being circumcised nor being uncircumcised matters; what matters is being a new creation. 15 Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is a new creation.
16 And as many as order their lives by this rule, shalom upon them and mercy, and upon the Isra'el of God! 16 Peace and mercy to all who follow this rule, even to the Israel of God.
17 From now on, I don't want anyone to give me any more tsuris, because I have scars on my body to prove that I belong to Yeshua! 17 Finally, let no one cause me trouble, for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus.
18 The grace of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah be with your spirit, brothers. Amen. 18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers. Amen.
