CSB 1 Christ has liberated us into freedom. Therefore stand firm and don't submit again to a yoke of slavery. NIV 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. CSB 2 Take note! I, Paul, tell you that if you get circumcised, Christ will not benefit you at all. NIV 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. CSB 3 Again I testify to every man who gets circumcised that he is obligated to keep the entire law. NIV 3 Again I declare to every man who lets himself be circumcised that he is obligated to obey the whole law. CSB 4 You who are trying to be justified by the law are alienated from Christ; you have fallen from grace! NIV 4 You who are trying to be justified by law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace. CSB 5 For by the Spirit we eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness from faith. NIV 5 But by faith we eagerly await through the Spirit the righteousness for which we hope. CSB 6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision accomplishes anything; what matters is faith working through love. NIV 6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love. CSB 7 You were running well. Who prevented you from obeying the truth? NIV 7 You were running a good race. Who cut in on you and kept you from obeying the truth? CSB 8 This persuasion did not come from Him who called you. NIV 8 That kind of persuasion does not come from the one who calls you. CSB 9 A little yeast leavens the whole lump of dough. NIV 9 "A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough." CSB 10 In the Lord I have confidence in you that you will not accept any other view. But whoever it is who is troubling you will pay the penalty. NIV 10 I am confident in the Lord that you will take no other view. The one who is throwing you into confusion will pay the penalty, whoever he may be. CSB 11 Now brothers, if I still preach circumcision, why am I still persecuted? In that case the offense of the cross has been abolished.

CSB 13 For you are called to freedom, brothers; only don't use this freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but serve one another through love. NIV 13 You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. CSB 14 For the entire law is fulfilled in one statement: Love your neighbor as yourself. NIV 14 The entire law is summed up in a single command: "Love your neighbor as yourself." CSB 15 But if you bite and devour one another, watch out, or you will be consumed by one another. NIV 15 If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other. CSB 16 I say then, walk by the Spirit and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. NIV 16 So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. CSB 17 For the flesh desires what is against the Spirit, and the Spirit desires what is against the flesh; these are opposed to each other, so that you don't do what you want. NIV 17 For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want. CSB 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. NIV 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law. CSB 19 Now the works of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, moral impurity, promiscuity, NIV 19 The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; CSB 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatreds, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambitions, dissensions, factions, NIV 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions CSB 21 envy, drunkenness, carousing, and anything similar, about which I tell you in advance-as I told you before-that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. NIV 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. CSB 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, NIV 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, CSB 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law. NIV 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. CSB 24 Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
