Galatians 5

1 Christ freed us to freedom. Stand, therefore, and be not held-within again by a yoke of slavery.

2 Behold, I Paul say to you, that if you might be circumcised, then Christ will profit you not even one thing.

3 And I testify again to every man being circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.

4 You were idled-down from Christ, whichever ones in law are justified, you fell from the grace.

5 For we by spirit, out from faith, await the hope of righteousness.

6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision avails a certain thing, nor uncircumcision, but faith working through love.

7 You were running well. Who hindered you to not obey the truth?

8 The persuasion is not out from the One calling you.

9 A little leaven leavens the whole lump.

10 I myself have persuaded into you in the Lord that you will mind not even one another; but the one troubling you will bear the judgment, whosoever he might be.

11 Moreover, I brethren, since I still preach circumcision, then why am I still pursued? The offense of the cross has been idled-down.

12 And I would the ones stirring-up you would cut themselves off.

13 For you were called upon freedom, brethren, only use not the freedom into an opportunity to the flesh, but through love slave to one another.

14 For all the law has been fulfilled in one word, in the one: You will love your neighbor as yourself.

15 And since you bite and devour one another, then see that you might not be consumed by one another.

16 Moreover, I say, walk by spirit and you might absolutely not complete the lust of flesh.

17 For the flesh desires against the spirit and the spirit against the flesh, for these lie opposite to one another, in order that, if which things you might desire, then these things you might not do.

18 But since by spirit you are being led, then you are not under law.

19 Moreover, the works of the flesh are manifest, which are prostitution, uncleanness, licentiousness,

20 idolatry, drug abuse, enmities, strife, jealousy, angers, selfish ambitions, divisions, factions,

21 envies, intoxicants, revels, and the ones similar to these things, which things I say before to you, just as I said before, that the ones practicing these things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faith,

23 gentleness, self-control; against these things there is no law.

24 Moreover, the ones of Christ crucified the flesh with the sufferings and the lusts.

25 Since we live by spirit, then let us also walk by spirit.

26 Let us not come to be conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.
