Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you is not irksome to me, and is safe for you.
Look out for the dogs, look out for the evil-workers, look out for those who mutilate the flesh.
For we are the true circumcision, who worship God in spirit, and glory in Christ Jesus, and put no confidence in the flesh.
Though I myself have reason for confidence in the flesh also. If any other man thinks he has reason for confidence in the flesh, I have more:
circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew born of Hebrews; as to the law a Pharisee,
as to zeal a persecutor of the church, as to righteousness under the law blameless.
