The Epistle of Paul to the Galatians
5:1 For freedom did Christ set us free: stand fast therefore, and be not entangled
again in a yoke of bondage. 5:2Behold, I Paul say unto you, that, if ye receive
circumcision, Christ will profit you nothing. 5:3Yea, I testify again to every man
that receiveth circumcision, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. 5:4Ye are
severed from Christ, ye would be justified by the law; ye are fallen away from
grace. 5:5For we through the Spirit by faith wait for the hope of righteousness. 5:6For
in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision; but
faith working through love. 5:7Ye were running well; who hindered you that ye
should not obey the truth? 5:8This persuasion came not of him that calleth you. 5:9A
little leaven leaveneth the whole lump. 5:10I have confidence to you-ward in the
Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear
his judgment, whosoever he be. 5:11But I, brethren, if I still preach circumcision,
why am I still persecuted? then hath the stumbling-block of the cross been done
away. 5:12I would that they that unsettle you would even go beyond circumcision.
5:13For ye, brethren, were called for freedom; only use not your freedom for an
occasion to the flesh, but through love be servants one to another. 5:14For the whole
law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.
5:15But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of
another. 5:16But I say, walk by the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
5:17For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these
are contrary the one to the other; that ye may not do the things that ye would.
5:18But if ye are led by the Spirit, ye are not under the law. 5:19Now the works of the
flesh are manifest, which are these: fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
5:20idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousies, wraths, factions, divisions, parties,
5:21envyings, drunkenness, revellings, and such like; of which I forewarn you, even
as I did forewarn you, that they who practise such things shall not inherit the
kingdom of God. 5:22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering,
kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 5:23meekness, self-control; against such there is
no law. 5:24And they that are of Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with the
passions and the lusts thereof. 5:25If we live by the Spirit, by the Spirit let us also
walk. 5:26Let us not become vainglorious, provoking one another, envying one
