Galatians 5

He moveth them to stand in their liberty,

Galatians 5:1 For freedom did Christ set us free: stand fast therefore, and be not entangled again in a yoke of bondage. Galatians 5:2 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that, if ye receive circumcision, Christ will profit you nothing.

and not to observe circumcision:

Galatians 5:3 Yea, I testify again to every man that receiveth circumcision, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. Galatians 5:4 Ye are severed from Christ, ye who would be justified by the law; ye are fallen away from grace. Galatians 5:5 For we through the Spirit by faith wait for the hope of righteousness. Galatians 5:6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision; but faith working through love. Galatians 5:7 Ye were running well; who hindered you that ye should not obey the truth? Galatians 5:8 This persuasion [came] not of him that calleth you. Galatians 5:9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump. Galatians 5:10 I have confidence to you-ward in the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be. Galatians 5:11 But I, brethren, if I still preach circumcision, why am I still persecuted? then hath the stumbling-block of the cross been done away. Galatians 5:12 I would that they that unsettle you would even go beyond circumcision.

but rather love, which is the sum of the Law.

Galatians 5:13 For ye, brethren, were called for freedom; only [use] not your freedom for an occasion to the flesh, but through love be servants one to another. Galatians 5:14 For the whole law is fulfilled in one word, [even] in this: Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. Galatians 5:15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. Galatians 5:16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. Galatians 5:17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are contrary the one to the other; that ye may not do the things that ye would. Galatians 5:18 But if ye are led by the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

He reckoneth up the works of the flesh,

Galatians 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are [these]: fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Galatians 5:20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousies, wraths, factions, divisions, parties, Galatians 5:21 envyings, drunkenness, revellings, and such like; of which I forewarn you, even as I did forewarn you, that they who practise such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

and the fruits of the Spirit,

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, Galatians 5:23 meekness, self-control; against such there is no law. Galatians 5:24 And they that are of Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with the passions and the lusts thereof.

and exhorteth to walk in the Spirit.

Galatians 5:25 If we live by the Spirit, by the Spirit let us also walk. Galatians 5:26 Let us not become vainglorious, provoking one another, envying one another.
