Galatians 5:11-21

NCV 11 My brothers and sisters, I do not teach that a man must be circumcised. If I teach circumcision, why am I still being attacked? If I still taught circumcision, my preaching about the cross would not be a problem. 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. NCV 12 I wish the people who are bothering you would castraten themselves! NIV 12 As for those agitators, I wish they would go the whole way and emasculate themselves! NCV 13 My brothers and sisters, God called you to be free, but do not use your freedom as an excuse to do what pleases your sinful self. Serve each other with 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. NCV 14 The whole law is made complete in this one command: "Love your neighbor as you love yourself." NIV 14 The entire law is summed up in a single command: "Love your neighbor as yourself." NCV 15 If you go on hurting each other and tearing each other apart, be careful, or you will completely destroy each other. NIV 15 If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other. NCV 16 So I tell you: Live by following the Spirit. Then you will not do what your sinful selves want. NIV 16 So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. NCV 17 Our sinful selves want what is against the Spirit, and the Spirit wants what is against our sinful selves. The two are against each other, so you cannot do just what you please. 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. NCV 18 But if the Spirit is leading you, you are not under the law. NIV 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law. NCV 19 The wrong things the sinful self does are clear: being sexually unfaithful, not being pure, taking part in sexual sins, NIV 19 The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; NCV 20 worshiping gods, doing witchcraft, hating, making trouble, being jealous, being angry, being selfish, making people angry with each other, causing divisions among people, NIV 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions NCV 21 feeling envy, being drunk, having wild and wasteful parties, and doing other things like these. I warn you now as I warned you before: Those who do these things will not inherit God's kingdom. 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.
