Galatians 5 (WEBP)

[1] Stand firm therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and don’t be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.
[2] Behold, I, Paul, tell you that if you receive circumcision, Christ will profit you nothing.
[3] Yes, I testify again to every man who receives circumcision that he is a debtor to do the whole law.
[4] You are alienated from Christ, you who desire to be justified by the law. You have fallen away from grace.
[5] For we through the Spirit, by faith wait for the hope of righteousness.
[6] For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision amounts to anything, but faith working through love.
[7] You were running well! Who interfered with you that you should not obey the truth?
[8] This persuasion is not from him who calls you.
[9] A little yeast grows through the whole lump.
[10] I have confidence toward you in the Lord that you will think no other way. But he who troubles you will bear his judgment, whoever he is.
[11] But I, brothers, if I still preach circumcision, why am I still persecuted? Then the stumbling block of the cross has been removed.
[12] I wish that those who disturb you would cut themselves off.
[13] For you, brothers, were called for freedom. Only don’t use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love be servants to one another.
[14] For the whole law is fulfilled in one word, in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
[15] But if you bite and devour one another, be careful that you don’t consume one another.
[16] But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you won’t fulfill the lust of the flesh.
[17] For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, that you may not do the things that you desire.
[18] But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
[19] Now the deeds of the flesh are obvious, which are: adultery, sexual immorality, uncleanness, lustfulness,
[20] idolatry, sorcery, hatred, strife, jealousies, outbursts of anger, rivalries, divisions, heresies,
[21] envy, murders, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these; of which I forewarn you, even as I also forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit God’s Kingdom.
[22] But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith,
[23] gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
[24] Those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh with its passions and lusts.
[25] If we live by the Spirit, let’s also walk by the Spirit.
[26] Let’s not become conceited, provoking one another, and envying one another.

Galatians 5 (KJVS)

[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 .

Young’s Literal Translation

Galatians 5 (YLT)

[1] In the freedom, then, with which Christ did make you free-stand ye, and be not held fast again by a yoke of servitude;
[2] lo, I Paul do say to you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing;
[3] and I testify again to every man circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law;
[4] ye were freed from the Christ, ye who in law are declared righteous; from the grace ye fell away;
[5] for we by the Spirit, by faith, a hope of righteousness do wait for,
[6] for in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision, but faith through love working.
[7] Ye were running well; who did hinder you-not to obey the truth?
[8] the obedience is not of him who is calling you!
[9] a little leaven the whole lump doth leaven;
[10] I have confidence in regard to you in the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded; and he who is troubling you shall bear the judgment, whoever he may be.
[11] And I, brethren, if uncircumcision I yet preach, why yet am I persecuted? then hath the stumbling-block of the cross been done away;
[12] O that even they would cut themselves off who are unsettling you!
[13] For ye-to freedom ye were called, brethren, only not the freedom for an occasion to the flesh, but through the love serve ye one another,
[14] for all the law in one word is fulfilled-in this: ‘Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself;’
[15] and if one another ye do bite and devour, see-that ye may not by one another be consumed.
[16] And I say: In the Spirit walk ye, and the desire of the flesh ye may not complete;
[17] for the flesh doth desire contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit contrary to the flesh, and these are opposed one to another, that the things that ye may will-these ye may not do;
[18] and if by the Spirit ye are led, ye are not under law.
[19] And manifest also are the works of the flesh, which are: Adultery, whoredom, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
[20] idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, strifes, emulations, wraths, rivalries, dissensions, sects,
[21] envyings, murders, drunkennesses, revellings, and such like, of which I tell you before, as I also said before, that those doing such things the reign of God shall not inherit.
[22] And the fruit of the Spirit is: Love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith,
[23] meekness, temperance: against such there is no law;
[24] and those who are Christ’s, the flesh did crucify with the affections, and the desires;
[25] if we may live in the Spirit, in the Spirit also we may walk;
[26] let us not become vain-glorious-one another provoking, one another envying!
