Galatians Chapter 5
1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath madeus freeand be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
2 BeholdI Paul say unto youthat if ye be circumcisedChristshall profit you nothing.
3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcisedthat heis a debtor to do the whole law.
4 Christ is become of no effect unto youwhosoever of you arejustified by the lawye are fallen from grace.
5 For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousnessby faith.
6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thingnor uncircumcisionbut faith which worketh by love.
7 Ye did run wellwho did hinder you that ye should not obeythe truth
8 This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you.
9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.
10 I have confidence in you through the Lordthat ye will benone otherwise mindedbut he that troubleth you shall bearhis judgmentwhosoever he be.
11 And Ibrethrenif I yet preach circumcisionwhy do I yetsuffer persecutionthen is the offence of the cross ceased.
12 I would they were even cut off which trouble you.
13 Forbrethrenye have been called unto libertyonly use notliberty for an occasion to the fleshbut by love serve oneanother.
14 For all the law is fulfilled in one wordeven in thisThoushalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
15 But if ye bite and devour one anothertake heed that ye benot consumed one of another.
16 This I say thenWalk in the Spiritand ye shall not fulfilthe lust of the flesh.
17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spiritand the Spiritagainst the fleshand these are contrary the one to theotherso that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
18 But if ye be led of the Spiritye are not under the law.
19 Now the works of the flesh are manifestwhich are theseAdulteryfornicationuncleannesslasciviousness
21 Envyingsmurdersdrunkennessrevellingsand such likeofthe which I tell you beforeas I have also told you in timepastthat they which do such things shall not inherit thekingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is lovejoypeace longsufferinggentlenessgoodnessfaith
23 Meeknesstemperanceagainst such there is no law.
24 And they that are Christ s have crucified the flesh with theaffections and lusts.
25 If we live in the Spiritlet us also walk in the Spirit.
26 Let us not be desirous of vain gloryprovoking one anotherenvying one another.
