Galatians 2

1 Furthermore, through fourteen years, I went up again into Jerusalem with Barnabas, having taken-alongside Titus also.

2 And I went up according to a revelation, and declared to them the gospel which I preach in the nations, but according to privately to the ones supposing, lest somehow I might run or have ran into emptiness.

3 But not even Titus, the one with me, being a Greek, was compelled to be circumcised.

4 And on account of the lying-brethren secretly-brought-in, who slipped-in to down-watch our freedom which we have in Christ Jesus, in order that they will enslave us down.

5 To whom we yielded not even toward an hour to the under-arrangement, in order that the truth of the gospel might continue-through toward you all.

6 But away from the ones supposing to be something, what sort of things they once were, not even one thing carries-through to me; God does not receive a face of man, for the ones supposing, not even one thing they consulted for themselves to me,

7 but on the contrary, having seen that I had been entrusted the gospel of the uncircumcision, just as Peter of the circumcision,

8 for the One having worked Peter into an apostleship of the circumcision, also worked with me into the nations,

9 and having known the grace, the one having been given to me, James and Kephas and John, the ones supposing to be pillars, gave to me and to Barnabas the right hands of fellowship, in order that we go into the nations and they go into the circumcision;

10 only of the poor, in order that we might remember, which also I was diligent to do this very thing.

11 But when Kephas came into Antioch, I stood against him according to his face, because he was condemnable.

12 For before the result of certain ones to come away from James, he was eating together with the nations, but when they came, he was withdrawing and was separating himself, fearing the ones out from circumcision.

13 And [also] the remaining Jews, pretended-together with him, so that even Barnabas was led-away-together by their hypocrisy.

14 But when I saw that they do not walk-straight toward the truth of the gospel, I said to the Kephas in front of all, if you being a Jew, live as a Gentile and not as a Jew, how do you compel the nations to live as Jews?

15 We are Jews by nature, and not sinners out from the nations;

16 [and] knowing that, a man is not justified out from works of law, except through faith of Jesus Christ, even we believed into Christ Jesus, in order that we might be justified out from faith of Christ and not out from works of law, because all flesh will not be justified out from works of law.

17 But since, seeking to be justified in Christ, we ourselves were also found sinners, then is Christ a servant of sin? May it not come to be.

18 For since I build-up again these things which I loosed-down, then I place myself together-with a transgressor.

19 For I myself through law died to law, in order that I might live to God; I have been crucified-together with Christ.

20 And I myself live no longer, but Christ lives in me; and that which I now live in flesh, I live in the faith of the Son of the God, the One having loved me and having gave Himself on behalf of me.

21 I do not set aside the grace of God; for if a state-of-justification comes through law, then Christ died for nothing.
