5:1 Christ has set us free in freedom; stand fast therefore, and be not held again in a yoke of bondage.
5:2 Behold, I, Paul, say to you, that if ye are circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.
5:3 And I witness again to every man [who is] circumcised, that he is debtor to do the whole law.
5:4 Ye are deprived of all profit from the Christ as separated [from him], as many as are justified by law; ye have fallen from grace.
5:5 For we, by [the] Spirit, on the principle of faith, await the hope of righteousness.
5:6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision has any force, nor uncircumcision; but faith working through love.
5:7 Ye ran well; who has stopped you that ye should not obey the truth?
5:8 The persuasibleness [is] not of him that calls you.
5:9 A little leaven leavens the whole lump.
5:10 *I* have confidence as to you in [the] Lord, that ye will have no other mind; and he that is troubling you shall bear the guilt [of it], whosoever he may be.
5:11 But *I*, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why am I yet persecuted? Then the scandal of the cross has been done away.
5:12 I would that they would even cut themselves off who throw you into confusion.
5:13 For *ye* have been called to liberty, brethren; only [do] not [turn] liberty into an opportunity to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
5:14 For the whole law is fulfilled in one word, in Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself;
5:15 but if ye bite and devour one another, see that ye are not consumed one of another.
5:16 But I say, Walk in [the] Spirit, and ye shall no way fulfil flesh's lust.
5:17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these things are opposed one to the other, that ye should not do those things which ye desire;
5:18 but if ye are led by the Spirit, ye are not under law.
5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are fornication, uncleanness, licentiousness,
5:20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, strifes, jealousies, angers, contentions, disputes, schools of opinion,
5:21 envyings, murders, drunkennesses, revels, and things like these; as to which I tell you beforehand, even as I also have said before, that they who do such things shall not inherit God's kingdom.
5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, fidelity,
5:23 meekness, self-control: against such things there is no law.
5:24 But they that [are] of the Christ have crucified the flesh with the passions and the lusts.
5:25 If we live by the Spirit, let us walk also by the Spirit.
5:26 Let us not become vain-glorious, provoking one another, envying one another.
