||New International Version (NIV)
12 Whoever wants to look good by human standards will try to get you to be circumcised, but only so they won't be harassed 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.
