Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Look to yourself, lest you too be tempted. 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, and so fulfil the law of Christ. 2 Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
3 For if any one thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. 3 If anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself.
4 But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor. 4 Each one should test his own actions. Then he can take pride in himself, without comparing himself to somebody else,
5 For each man will have to bear his own load. 5 for each one should carry his own load.
6 Let him who is taught the word share all good things with him who teaches. 6 Anyone who receives instruction in the word must share all good things with his instructor.
7 Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, 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 For he who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption; but he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap 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 grow weary in well-doing, for in due season we shall reap, if we do not lose heart. 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 do good to all men, and especially to those who are of the household of 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 with 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 It is those who want to make a good showing in the flesh that would compel you to be circumcised, and only in order that they may not be 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 even those who receive circumcision do not themselves keep the law, but they desire to have you circumcised that they may 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 glory except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I 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 counts for anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation. 15 Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is a new creation.
16 Peace and mercy be upon all who walk by this rule, upon the Israel of God. 16 Peace and mercy to all who follow this rule, even to the Israel of God.
17 Henceforth let no man trouble me; for I bear on my body 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, brethren. Amen. 18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers. Amen.
