New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
11 See what large letters I make when I am writing in 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 try to compel you to be circumcised—only 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 Even the circumcised do not themselves obey the law, but they want you to be circumcised so that they may boast about 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 May I never boast of anything except 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 nor uncircumcision is anything; but a new creation is everything! 15 Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is a new creation.
16 As for those who will follow this rule—peace be upon them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God. 16 Peace and mercy to all who follow this rule, even to the Israel of God.
17 From now on, let no one make trouble for me; for I carry the marks of Jesus branded on my body. 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 spirit, brothers and sisters. Amen. 18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers. Amen.
