Galatians 5

WNT 1 Christ having made us gloriously free--stand fast and do not again be hampered with the 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. WNT 2 Remember that it is I Paul who tell you that if you receive circumcision Christ will avail you nothing. 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. WNT 3 I once more protest to every man who receives circumcision that he is under obligation to obey the whole Law of Moses. NIV 3 Again I declare to every man who lets himself be circumcised that he is obligated to obey the whole law. WNT 4 Christ has become nothing to any of you who are seeking acceptance with God through the Law: you have fallen away from grace. NIV 4 You who are trying to be justified by law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace. WNT 5 *We* have not, for through the Spirit we wait with longing hope for an acceptance with God which is to come through faith. NIV 5 But by faith we eagerly await through the Spirit the righteousness for which we hope. WNT 6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision is of any importance; but only 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. WNT 7 You were running the race nobly! Who has interfered and caused you to swerve from the truth? NIV 7 You were running a good race. Who cut in on you and kept you from obeying the truth? WNT 8 No such teaching ever proceeded from Him who is calling you. NIV 8 That kind of persuasion does not come from the one who calls you. WNT 9 A little yeast corrupts the whole of the dough. NIV 9 "A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough." WNT 10 For my part I have strong confidence in you in the Lord that you will adopt my view of the matter. But the man--be he who he may--who is troubling you, will have to bear the full weight of the judgement to be pronounced on him. 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. WNT 11 As for me, brethren, if I am still a preacher of circumcision, how is it that I am still suffering persecution? In that case the Cross has ceased to be a stumbling-block! NIV 11 Brothers, if I am still preaching circumcision, why am I still being persecuted? In that case the offense of the cross has been abolished. WNT 12 Would to God that those who are unsettling your faith would even mutilate themselves. NIV 12 As for those agitators, I wish they would go the whole way and emasculate themselves! WNT 13 You however, brethren, were called to freedom. Only do not turn your freedom into an excuse for giving way to your lower natures; but become bondservants to one another in a spirit of 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. WNT 14 For the entire Law has been obeyed when you have kept the single precept, which says, "You are to love your fellow man equally with yourself." NIV 14 The entire law is summed up in a single command: "Love your neighbor as yourself." WNT 15 But if you are perpetually snarling and snapping at one another, beware lest you are destroyed by one another. NIV 15 If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other. WNT 16 This then is what I mean. Let your lives be guided by the Spirit, and then you will certainly not indulge the cravings of your lower natures. NIV 16 So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. WNT 17 For the cravings of the lower nature are opposed to those of the Spirit, and the cravings of the Spirit are opposed to those of the lower nature; because these are antagonistic to each other, so that you cannot do everything to which you are inclined. 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. WNT 18 But if the Spirit is leading you, you are not subject to Law. NIV 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law. WNT 19 Now you know full well the doings of our lower natures. Fornication, impurity, indecency, idol-worship, sorcery; NIV 19 The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; WNT 20 enmity, strife, jealousy, outbursts of passion, intrigues, dissensions, factions, envyings; NIV 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions WNT 21 hard drinking, riotous feasting, and the like. And as to these I forewarn you, as I have already forewarned you, that those who are guilty of such things will have no share in 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. WNT 22 The Spirit, on the other hand, brings a harvest of love, joy, peace; patience towards others, kindness, benevolence; NIV 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, WNT 23 good faith, meekness, self-restraint. NIV 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. WNT 24 Against such things as these there is no law. Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified their lower nature with its passions and appetites. NIV 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. WNT 25 If we are living by the Spirit's power, let our conduct also be governed by the Spirit's power. NIV 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. WNT 26 Let us not become vain-glorious, challenging one another, envying one another. NIV 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.
