THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE
Stand fast in gospel liberty—Seek faith, love, Christ, and the Spirit—The works of the flesh and the fruits of the Spirit set forth.
Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.
For I testify again to every man that is acircumcised
, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.
Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the alaw
; ye are fallen from bgrace
For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by afaith
Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not aobey
This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you.
A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.
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.
And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer persecution? then is the aoffence
of the cross ceased.
I would they were even acut
off which btrouble
For, brethren, ye have been called unto aliberty
; only use
not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love bserve
For all the alaw
is fulfilled in one word, even
in this; Thou shalt blove
thy neighbour as thyself.
But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.
I say then, aWalk
in the bSpirit
, and ye shall not fulfil the clust
of the flesh.
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.
But if ye be aled
of the Spirit, ye are not under the blaw
Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, astrife
, seditions, heresies,
, murders, bdrunkenness
, 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.
And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the aaffections
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
Let us not be desirous of vain glory, aprovoking
one another, envying one another.
