Galatians 2:11-21

RSV 11 But when Cephas came to Antioch I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned. NIV 11 When Peter came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he was clearly in the wrong. RSV 12 For before certain men came from James, he ate with the Gentiles; but when they came he drew back and separated himself, fearing the circumcision party. 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. RSV 13 And with him the rest of the Jews acted insincerely, so that even Barnabas was carried away by their insincerity. NIV 13 The other Jews joined him in his hypocrisy, so that by their hypocrisy even Barnabas was led astray. RSV 14 But when I saw that they were not straightforward about the truth of the gospel, I said to Cephas before them all, "If you, though a Jew, live like a Gentile and not like a Jew, how can you compel the Gentiles to live like 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? RSV 15 We ourselves, who are Jews by birth and not Gentile sinners, NIV 15 "We who are Jews by birth and not 'Gentile sinners' RSV 16 yet who know that a man is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ, and not by works of the law, because by works of the law shall no one 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. RSV 17 But if, in our endeavor to be justified in Christ, we ourselves were found to be sinners, is Christ then an agent of sin? Certainly not! 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! RSV 18 But if I build up again those things which I tore down, then I prove myself a transgressor. NIV 18 If I rebuild what I destroyed, I prove that I am a lawbreaker. RSV 19 For I through the law died to the law, that I might live to God. NIV 19 For through the law I died to the law so that I might live for God. RSV 20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in 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. RSV 21 I do not nullify the grace of God; for if justification were through the law, then Christ died to no purpose. NIV 21 I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!"
