Galatians 2

KJV 1 Then fourteen years after I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, and took Titus with me also. NIV 1 Fourteen years later I went up again to Jerusalem, this time with Barnabas. I took Titus along also. KJV 2 And I went up by revelation, and communicated unto them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to them which were of reputation , lest by any means I should run , or had run , in vain. NIV 2 I went in response to a revelation and set before them the gospel that I preach among the Gentiles. But I did this privately to those who seemed to be leaders, for fear that I was running or had run my race in vain. KJV 3 But neither Titus, who was with me, being a Greek, was compelled to be circumcised : NIV 3 Yet not even Titus, who was with me, was compelled to be circumcised, even though he was a Greek. KJV 4 And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage : NIV 4 [This matter arose] because some false brothers had infiltrated our ranks to spy on the freedom we have in Christ Jesus and to make us slaves. KJV 5 To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you. NIV 5 We did not give in to them for a moment, so that the truth of the gospel might remain with you. KJV 6 But of these who seemed to be somewhat, (whatsoever they were , it maketh no matter to me: God accepteth no man's person:) for they who seemed to be somewhat in conference added nothing to me: NIV 6 As for those who seemed to be important--whatever they were makes no difference to me; God does not judge by external appearance--those men added nothing to my message. KJV 7 But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me , as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter; NIV 7 On the contrary, they saw that I had been entrusted with the task of preaching the gospel to the Gentiles, just as Peter had been to the Jews. KJV 8 (For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles:) NIV 8 For God, who was at work in the ministry of Peter as an apostle to the Jews, was also at work in my ministry as an apostle to the Gentiles. KJV 9 And when James , Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision. NIV 9 James, Peter and John, those reputed to be pillars, gave me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship when they recognized the grace given to me. They agreed that we should go to the Gentiles, and they to the Jews. KJV 10 Only they would that we should remember the poor; the same which I also was forward to do . NIV 10 All they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor, the very thing I was eager to do. KJV 11 But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed . NIV 11 When Peter came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he was clearly in the wrong. KJV 12 For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come , he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision. NIV 12 Before certain men came from James, he used to eat with the Gentiles. But when they arrived, he began to draw back and separate himself from the Gentiles because he was afraid of those who belonged to the circumcision group. KJV 13 And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation. NIV 13 The other Jews joined him in his hypocrisy, so that by their hypocrisy even Barnabas was led astray. KJV 14 But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews ? NIV 14 When I saw that they were not acting in line with the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter in front of them all, "You are a Jew, yet you live like a Gentile and not like a Jew. How is it, then, that you force Gentiles to follow Jewish customs? KJV 15 We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles, NIV 15 "We who are Jews by birth and not 'Gentile sinners' KJV 16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified . NIV 16 know that a man is not justified by observing the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by observing the law, because by observing the law no one will be justified. KJV 17 But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid . NIV 17 "If, while we seek to be justified in Christ, it becomes evident that we ourselves are sinners, does that mean that Christ promotes sin? Absolutely not! KJV 18 For if I build again the things which I destroyed , I make myself a transgressor. NIV 18 If I rebuild what I destroyed, I prove that I am a lawbreaker. KJV 19 For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. NIV 19 For through the law I died to the law so that I might live for God. KJV 20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live ; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. NIV 20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. KJV 21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain. NIV 21 I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!"
