Galatians 2

He sheweth when he went up again to Jerusalem, and for what purpose:

Galatians 2:1 Then fouretene yeares thereafter, I went vp agayne to Ierusalem with Barnabas, and toke Titus with me. Galatians 2:2 I went vp also by reuelacyon, and commened with them of the Gospell which I preache amonge the Gentyls (but specially) with them which were counted chyefe, leest I shulde runne or had runne in vayne.

and that Titus was not circumcised:

Galatians 2:3 Also Titus which was wt me, though he were a greke, yet was not compelled to be circumcised: Galatians 2:4 and that because of incommers beynge false brethren, which came in preuely to spye out oure libertye which we haue in Christ Iesu, þt they myght bringe vs in to bondage. Galatians 2:5 To whom we gaue no rowme, no not for the tyme (by waye of subieccyon) because that the trueth of the Gospell myght contynue with you. Galatians 2:6 Of them which semed to be somwhat, what they were in tyme passed it make the no matter to me. God loketh on the outwarde appearaunce of no man. Neuertheles they which semed greate, added nothynge to me. Galatians 2:7 But contrary wyse, when they sawe þt the gospell ouer þe vncircumcision was committed vnto me, as þe gospell ouer þe circumcisyon was commytted vnto Peter. Galatians 2:8 For he that was myghty in Peter in the Apostleshyppe ouer the circumcisyon, the same was myghty in me amonge the Gentyls. Galatians 2:9 When they perceaued the grace that was geuen vnto me, then Iames, Cephas and Iohn, which semed to be pyllers, gaue to me and Barnabas the ryght handes of that felowshyppe, that we shulde be Apostles among the Heythen, and they in the circumcisyon: Galatians 2:10 onely that we shuld remember the poore. Wherin also I was diligent to do the same.

and that he resisted Peter, and told him the reason,

Galatians 2:11 But when Peter was come to Antioche I withstode him openly, because he was worthy to be blamed. Galatians 2:12 For yer that certayne cam from Iames, he dyd eate with the Gentyls. But when they were come, he withdrue and separated hym selfe from them, fearynge them which were of the circumcisyon. Galatians 2:13 And the other Iewes dissembled as well as he: in so moche that Barnabas also was brought into their symulacion.

why he and others, being Jews, do believe in Christ to be justified by faith, and not by works:

Galatians 2:14 But when I sawe that they went not the right waye after the trueth of þe Gospell, I sayde vnto Peter before them all: yf thou beynge a Iewe, lyuest after the maner of the Gentyls, and not as do þe Iewes: why causest thou the Gentyls to lyue as do the Iewes? Galatians 2:15 For we which are Iewes by nature, and not synners of the Gentyls, Galatians 2:16 knowe that a man is not iustifyed by the dedes of the lawe, but by the fayth of Iesus Christ: And we haue beleued on Iesus Chryst, that we might be iustifyed by the faith of Christ, and not by the dedes of the lawe: because by the dedes of the lawe no flesshe shalbe iustifyed. Galatians 2:17 If whyle we seke to be made ryghtewes by Christ, we our selues are founde synners, is then Christ þe minyster of synne? God forbyd. Galatians 2:18 For yf I buylde agayne the thynges which I destroyed, then make I my selfe a trespasser. Galatians 2:19 For I (thorowe þe lawe) haue bene deed to the lawe, þt I myght lyue vnto Christ.

and that they live not in sin, who are so justified.

Galatians 2:20 I am crucified wt Christ. Neuertheles I lyue: yet nowe not I, but Christ lyueth in me. The lyfe which I nowe lyue in þe flesshe, I lyue by þe fayth of þe sonne of God which loued me, and gaue hym selfe for me. Galatians 2:21 I despyse not the grace of God. For yf ryghtewesnes come of the lawe, then Christ is deed in vayne.
