GALATIANS - Chapter 5

1 - Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
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 circumcised, 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 law; ye are fallen from grace.
5 - For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.
6 - For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.
7 - Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?
8 - This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you.
9 - A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.
10 - I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth 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 offence of the cross ceased.
12 - I would they were even cut off which trouble you.
13 - For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
14 - For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love 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, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
17 - For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, 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 led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
19 - Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 - Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 - Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, 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 fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 - Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
24 - And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections 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, provoking one another, envying one another.
