Galatians Chapter Five

   
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.

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 anything, 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.
 
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 fulfill 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.
 
19: Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
 
20: Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
 
21: Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
 
22: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
 
23: Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
 
24: And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
 
25: If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
 
26: Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
