Galatians 2:3-143But even Titus, who was with me a was not forced to be circumcised, though he was a Greek. 4 b Yet because of false brothers secretly brought in—who c slipped in to spy out d our freedom that we have in Christ Jesus e so that they might bring us into slavery— 5to them we did not yield in submission even for a moment, so that f the truth of the gospel might be preserved for you. 6And from those g who seemed to be influential (what they were makes no difference to me; h God shows no partiality)—those, I say, who seemed influential i added nothing to me. 7On the contrary, when they saw that I had been j entrusted with k the gospel to the uncircumcised, just as Peter had been entrusted with the gospel to the circumcised 8(for he who worked through Peter for his apostolic ministry to the circumcised worked also through me for mine to the Gentiles), 9and when James and Cephas and John l who seemed to be m pillars, perceived the n grace that was given to me, they o gave the right hand of fellowship to Barnabas and me, that we should go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised. 10Only, they asked us to remember the poor p the very thing I was eager to do.
Paul Opposes Peter11But q when Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him r to his face, because he stood condemned. 12For before certain men came from James s he was eating with the Gentiles; but when they came he drew back and separated himself, fearing t the circumcision party. ▼
▼Or fearing those of the circumcision13And the rest of the Jews acted hypocritically along with him, so that even Barnabas was led astray by their hypocrisy. 14But when I saw that their v conduct was not in step with w the truth of the gospel, I said to Cephas x before them all, “If you, though a Jew y live like a Gentile and not like a Jew, how can you force the Gentiles to live like Jews?”
