NASB — Galatians 5 — KJV

Walk by the Spirit

1 IaIt was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore bkeep standing firm and do not be subject again to a cyoke of slavery.

[1] ISome authorities prefer to join with 4:31 and render but with the freedom of the free woman Christ set us free aJn 8:32, 36; Ro 8:15; 2Co 3:17; Ga 2:4; 5:13 b1Co 16:13 cAc 15:10; Ga 2:4

2 ¶ Behold I, aPaul, say to you that if you receive bcircumcision, Christ will be of no benefit to you. 3 And I atestify again to every man who receives bcircumcision, that he is under obligation to ckeep the whole Law. 4 You have been severed from Christ, you who Iare seeking to be justified by law; you have afallen from grace. 5 For we Ithrough the Spirit, IIby faith, are awaiting for the hope of righteousness. 6 For in aChrist Jesus bneither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything, but cfaith working through love.

Then bthe stumbling block of the cross has been abolished. 12 I wish that athose who are troubling you would even Ibmutilate themselves.

He moveth them to stand in their liberty,

1 ¶ Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. 2 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.

and not to observe circumcision:

3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. 4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace. 5 For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. 6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love. 7 Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the 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 Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be. 11 And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer persecution? then is the offence of the cross ceased. 12 I would they were even cut off which trouble you.

but rather love, which is the sum of the Law.

13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only [use] not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. 14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, [even] in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. 16 [This] I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
