Galatians 5

1 For freedom has Christ freed you; be standing therefore and be not being subject again to the yoke of slavery. 2 Behold I Paul say to you that if you be circumcised, Christ will profit you nothing. 3 For I again testify to every man being circumcised that he is debtor to do the whole law. 4 You have disassociated from Christ, whoever [of you] is justified in the law, you have fallen from grace. 5 For we by [the] spirit await from faith [the] hope of justness. 6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision avails anything nor uncircumcision, but faith working through agape-love. 7 You were running well, what hindered you to not be being persuaded to [the] truth? 8 This persuasion [is] not from the [one] calling you. 9 [A] little leaven leavens the whole lump. 10 I am persuaded for you in the Lord that you will think on nothing else; but the [one] troubling you will bear the judgment, whoever he be. 11 But I, brothers, if I still proclaim circumcision, why am I still persecuted? Therefore the stumbling of the cross is nullified. 12 O that those upsetting you even be cut off.

13 For you were called to freedom, brothers, only not the freedom for pretext in the flesh, but through agape-love be enslaved to one another. 14 For the law is fulfilled in one word, in the: You will agape-love your neighbor as yourself. 15 But if you bite and devour one another, be seeing that you not be consumed by one another. 16 But I say, be walking in [the] spirit and you will not complete1 the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusts against the spirit, and the spirit against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, lest you do those [things] which you want. 18 But if you are led by [the] spirit, you are not under law. 19 But manifest are the works of the flesh, which are fornication, uncleanness, licentiousness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy2, wrath, selfishness3, dissension, factions4, 21 envy, drunkenness, partying, and the like, of which I tell you before, that those practicing such will not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the spirit is agape-love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, trustworthiness, 23 gentleness, self-control, against such there is no law. 24 And they of Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with [its] passions5 and [its] lusts. 25 If we zoe-live in [the] spirit, let us also be in line with [the] spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking6 one another, envying one another.
