Bear One Another’s Burdens1Brothers ▼
▼Or Brothers and sisters; also verse 18bif anyone is caught in any transgression, cyou who are spiritual should restore him in da spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted. 2 eBear one another’s burdens, and fso fulfill gthe law of Christ. 3For hif anyone thinks he is something, iwhen he is nothing, he deceives himself. 4But let each one jtest his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor. 5For keach will have to bear his own load.
6 lLet the one who is taught the word share all good things with the one who teaches. 7 mDo not be deceived: God is not mocked, for nwhatever one sows, that will he also reap. 8For othe one who sows to his own flesh pwill from the flesh reap corruption, but qthe one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. 9And rlet us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, sif we do not give up. 10So then, tas we have opportunity, let us udo good to everyone, and especially to those who are vof the household of faith.
Final Warning and Benediction11See with what large letters I am writing to you wwith my own hand. 12 xIt is those who want to make a good showing in the flesh ywho would force you to be circumcised, and only zin order that they may not be persecuted for the cross of Christ. 13For even those who are circumcised do not themselves keep the law, but they desire to have you circumcised that they may boast in your flesh. 14But far be it from me to boast aaexcept in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which ▼
▼Or through whomthe world achas been crucified to me, and I to the world. 15For adneither circumcision counts for anything, nor uncircumcision, but aea new creation. 16And as for all who walk by this rule, afpeace and mercy be upon them, and upon agthe Israel of God.
17From now on let no one cause me trouble, for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus.
18 ahThe grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be aiwith your spirit, brothers. Amen.
