See with what large letters I am writing to you 1with my own hand.
2It is those who want to make a good showing in the flesh 3who would force you to be circumcised, and only 4in order that they may not be persecuted for the cross of Christ.
For even those who are circumcised do not themselves keep the law, but they desire to have you circumcised that they may boast in your flesh.
But far be it from me to boast 5except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world 6has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
For 7neither circumcision counts for anything, nor uncircumcision, but 8a new creation.
And as for all who walk by this rule, 9peace and mercy be upon them, and upon 10the Israel of God.
From now on let no one cause me trouble, for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus.
11The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be 12with your spirit, brothers. Amen.
