Stand fast in gospel liberty—Seek faith, love, Christ, and the Spirit—The works of the flesh and the fruits of the Spirit are named.
1 aStand fast therefore in the bliberty wherewith Christ hath made us cfree, and be not dentangled again with the yoke of ebondage.
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 acircumcised, 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 alaw; ye are fallen from bgrace.
5 For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by afaith.
6 For in Jesus Christ neither acircumcision bavaileth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but cfaith which worketh by dlove.
7 Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not aobey the truth?
8 This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you.
9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.
10 I have aconfidence in you through the Lord, that ye bwill be none otherwise minded: but he that ctroubleth 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 aoffence of the cross ceased.
12 I would they were even acut off which btrouble you.
13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto aliberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love bserve one another.
14 For all the alaw is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt blove 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, aWalk in the bSpirit, and ye shall not fulfil the clust of the flesh.
17 For the flesh lusteth against the aSpirit, 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 aled of the Spirit, ye are not under the blaw.
19 Now the works of the aflesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, bfornication, cuncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, astrife, seditions, heresies,
21 aEnvyings, murders, bdrunkenness, crevellings, 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 afruit of the bSpirit is clove, djoy, epeace, flongsuffering, ggentleness, goodness, hfaith,
23 aMeekness, btemperance: against such there is no law.
24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the aaffections 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, aprovoking one another, envying one another.
