He moveth them to stand in their liberty,
Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the libertie wherewith Christ hath made vs free, and bee not intangled againe with the yoke of bondage. Galatians 5:2 Beholde, I Paul say vnto you that if ye be circumcised, Christ shal profite you nothing.
and not to observe circumcision:
Galatians 5:3 For I testifie againe to euery man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to doe the whole Law. Galatians 5:4 Christ is become of no effect vnto you, whosoeuer of you are iustified by the Law: ye are fallen from grace. Galatians 5:5 For we through the spirit waite for the hope of righteousnesse by faith. Galatians 5:6 For in Iesus Christ, neither circumcision auaileth any thing, nor vncircumcision, but faith which worketh by loue. Galatians 5:7 Ye did run well; who did hinder you, that ye should not obey the trueth? Galatians 5:8 This perswasion commeth not of him that calleth you. Galatians 5:9 A little leauen leaueneth the whole lumpe. Galatians 5:10 I haue confidence in you through the Lord, that you will be none otherwise minded; but he that troubleth you, shall beare [his] iudgement, whosoeuer hee be. Galatians 5:11 And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why doe I yet suffer persecution? then is the offence of the crosse ceased. Galatians 5:12 I would they were euen cut off which trouble you.
but rather love, which is the sum of the Law.
Galatians 5:13 For brethren, ye haue beene called vnto liberty, onely [vse] not libertie for an occasion to the flesh, but by loue serue one another. Galatians 5:14 For all the Law is fulfilled in one word, [euen] in this: Thou shalt loue thy neighbour as thy selfe. Galatians 5:15 But if yee bite and deuoure one another, take heed ye be not consumed one of another. Galatians 5:16 This I say then, Walke in the spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. Galatians 5:17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that yee cannot doe the things that yee would. Galatians 5:18 But if yee be lead of the spirit, yee are not vnder the Law.
He reckoneth up the works of the flesh,
Galatians 5:19 Nowe the workes of the flesh are manifest, which are [these], adulterie, fornication, vncleannesse, lasciuiousnesse, Galatians 5:20 Idolatrie, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Galatians 5:21 Enuyings, murthers, drunkennesse, reuellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I haue also tolde you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherite the kingdome of God.
and the fruits of the Spirit,
Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the spirit is loue, ioy, peace, long suffering, gentlenesse, goodnesse, faith, Galatians 5:23 Meekenesse, temperance: against such there is no law. Galatians 5:24 And they that are Christs, haue crucified the flesh with the affections and lustes.
and exhorteth to walk in the Spirit.
Galatians 5:25 If we liue in the Spirit, let vs also walke in the Spirit. Galatians 5:26 Let vs not be desirous of vaine glory, prouoking one another, enuying one another.
