He sheweth when he went up again to Jerusalem, and for what purpose:
Galatians 2:1 Then .xiiij. yeares after that, I went vp agayne to Hierusalem with Barnabas, and toke with me Titus also. Galatians 2:2 Yea and I wente vp by reuelacion, and communed with them of the Gospell which I preache amonge the gentyls: but a part with them which were counted chiefe, lest it shoulde haue bene thought, that I should runne or had runne in vayne.
and that Titus was not circumcised:
Galatians 2:3 Also Tytus which was wt me, though he were a Greke, yet was not compelled to be circumcysed, Galatians 2:4 and that because of incommers beynge false brethren which came in amonge other to spye out our lybertye which we haue in Christe Iesus, that they myghte brynge vs into bondage. Galatians 2:5 To whom we gaue no roume, no not for the space of an houre, as concernynge to be brought into subieccion, & that because that the truth of þe Gospel might contynue with you. Galatians 2:6 Of them whiche seme to be great (what they were in time passed, it maketh no matter to me: God loketh on no mans person) neuerthelesse they which seme great, added nothing to me. Galatians 2:7 But contrary wyse, when they sawe þt the Gospel ouer þt vncircumcysyon was committed vnto me, as the gospell ouer þe circumcisyon was vnto Peter: Galatians 2:8 for he þt was mighty in Peter in the Apostleshyppe ouer the circumcisyon the same was myghty in me amonge the Gentyls, Galatians 2:9 and therfore when they perceyued the grace that was geuen vnto me, then Iames, Cephas, and Iohn, whiche semed to be pyllars, gaue to me & Barnabas the ryght handes, & agreed with vs, that we should preach amonge the Heathen, and they amonge the Iewes, Galatians 2:10 warnyng onely, that we should remembre the pore. Whiche thyng also I was dylygently to do.
and that he resisted Peter, and told him the reason,
Galatians 2:11 And when Peter was come to Antioche, I withstode hym in the face, for he was worthy to be blamed. Galatians 2:12 For yer that certayne came from Iames, he eate with the Gentyls. But when they were come, he withdrue and separated hym selfe, fearyng them which were of the circumcysyon. Galatians 2:13 And the other Iewes dissembled lykewyse, in so muche þt Barnabas was brought into theyr simulacyon also.
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 ryghte waye after the truth of the Gospell, I sayde vnto Peter before all men, yf thou beynge a Iew, lyuest after the maner of the Gentyls, and not as do the Iewes: why causeste þu the Gentyls to lyue as do the Iewes? Galatians 2:15 We whiche are Iewes by nature, and not sinners 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 Christe. And therfore we haue beleued on Iesus Christe that we myghte be iustifyed by the fayth of Christe, and not by the dedes of the lawe, because that by the dedes of the lawe no fleshe can be iustifyed. Galatians 2:17 Yf then whyle we seke to be made ryghtuousnes by Christe, we our selues are founde synners, is not then Christe the mynister of synne? God forbyd, Galatians 2:18 For yf I buylde agayne that whiche I destroyed, then make I myself a treaspaser. Galatians 2:19 But I thorowe the lawe, am dead to the law: that I myght lyue vnto God
and that they live not in sin, who are so justified.
Galatians 2:20 I am crucyfyed with Christ. I lyue verelye: yet now not I, but Christe lyueth in me. For the lyfe which I now lyue in the, flesh I lyue by the faythe of the sonne of God whiche loued me, and gaue hym selfe for me. Galatians 2:21 I despyse not the grace of God. For yf ryghteousnes come of the lawe, then Christ dyed in vayne.
