1 aBrethren, even if anyone is caught in any trespass, you who are bspiritual, crestore such a one din a spirit of gentleness; each one looking to yourself, so that you too will not be tempted. 2 aBear one another's burdens, and thereby fulfill bthe law of Christ. 3 For aif anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself. 4 But each one must aexamine his own work, and then he will have reason for bboasting in regard to himself alone, and not in regard to another. 5 For aeach one will bear his own load. 6 aThe one who is taught bthe word is to share all good things with the one who teaches him. 7 aDo not be deceived, bGod is not mocked; for cwhatever a man sows, this he will also reap. 8 aFor the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap bcorruption, but cthe one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. 9 aLet us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we bdo not grow weary. 10 So then, awhile we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the bhousehold of cthe faith. 11 See with what large letters I am writing to you awith my own hand. 12 Those who desire ato make a good showing in the flesh try to bcompel you to be circumcised, simply so that they cwill not be persecuted for the cross of Christ. 13 For those who are circumcised do not even akeep the Law themselves, but they desire to have you circumcised so that they may bboast in your flesh. 14 But amay it never be that I would boast, bexcept in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, cthrough which the world has been crucified to me, and dI to the world. 15 For aneither is circumcision anything, nor uncircumcision, but a bnew creation. 16 And those who will walk by this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the aIsrael of God. 17 From now on let no one cause trouble for me, for I bear on my body the abrand-marks of Jesus. 18 aThe grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be bwith your spirit, cbrethren. Amen.
