Galatians 6

Galatians 6

1Paul adviseth them to reform the faulty with gentleness, 2and to bear one another's burdens. 3A caution against vanity. 6He exhorteth to be liberal toward spiritual instructors: 9and not to be weary in doing good. 12He sheweth the carnal views of those who preached circumcision, 14and his own professed dependence on Christ only, regardless of the world. 8He concludeth with a prayer.

1 Brethren, aif a man be 1overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

2 1Bear ye one another's burdens, and so 2fulfil the law of Christ.

3 1For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.

4 But 1let every man prove his own work, and then shall he 2have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.

5 For 1every man shall bear his own burden.

6 1Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.

7 1Be not deceived; God is not mocked: 2for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

8 For 1he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

9 And 1let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

10 1As we have therefore opportunity, 2let us do good unto all men, 3especially unto them who are of 4the household of faith.

11 Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you 1with mine own hand.

12 As many as desire to make a 1fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.

13 For 1neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh.

14 But God forbid that 1I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, aby whom the world 2is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.

15 1For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.

16 1And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

17 From henceforth 1let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.

18 Brethren, 1the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
