5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty with which Christ hath
made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of
5:2 Behold, I Paul say to you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ
will profit you nothing.
5:3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that
he is a debtor to do the whole law.
5:4 Christ is become of no effect to you, whoever of you are
justified by the law; ye have fallen from grace.
5:5 For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness
5:6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing,
nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.
5:7 Ye did run well, who hindered you that ye should not obey
5:8 This persuasion [cometh] not from him that calleth you.
5:9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.
5:10 I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be
no otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear his
judgment, whoever he may be.
5:11 And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet
suffer persecution? then hath the offense of the cross ceased.
5:12 I would they were even cut off who trouble you.
5:13 For, brethren, ye have been called to liberty; only [use]
not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one
5:14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, [even] in this,
Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.
5:15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be
not consumed one by another.
5:16 [This] I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye will not
fulfill the lust of the flesh.
5:17 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.
5:18 But if ye are led by the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are [these],
Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath,
strife, seditions, heresies,
5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revelings, and such like:
of which I tell you before, as I have also told [you] in time
past, that they who do such things shall not inherit the
kingdom of God.
5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,
long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
5:23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
5:24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh, with
the affections and lusts.
5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
5:26 Let us not be desirous of vain-glory, provoking one
another, envying one another.
