The Webster Bible (WBT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty with which Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. 1 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
2 Behold, I Paul say to you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ will profit you nothing. 2 Mark my words! I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no value to you at all.
3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. 3 Again I declare to every man who lets himself be circumcised that he is obligated to obey the whole law.
4 Christ is become of no effect to you, whoever of you are justified by the law; ye have fallen from grace. 4 You who are trying to be justified by law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace.
5 For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. 5 But by faith we eagerly await through the Spirit the righteousness for which we hope.
6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love. 6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.
