CHAPTER 5

If you get circumcised, Jesus can't help you
(Just cut off the whole enchilada)
5:1-12

1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

2 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing

If you are circumcised, Christ can't help you. [1]

3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.

If a man is circumcised, he must obey the whole law.

4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.

5 For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.

6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.

7 Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?

8 This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you.

9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.

10 I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be.

11 And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer persecution? then is the offence of the cross ceased.

If you are justified by the law, you have fallen from grace. [2]

12 I would they were even cut off which trouble you.

I wish those who bother you would castrate themselves. [3]

Love your neighbor as yourself
(against such things there is no law)
5:13-26

13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.

Serve each other with love.

14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.

Love your neighbor as yourself. [4]

16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

Walk in the spirit and you'll avoid the lust of the flesh.

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 ye cannot do the things that ye would.

Because the flesh lusts against the spirit,

and the spirit lusts against the flesh.

18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

If you're led by the spirit, you can ignore the law. [5]

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

The works of the flesh are these: [6]

adultery, fornication,

20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

idolatry, witchcraft, heresies,

21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

and drunkenness.

Whoever does these things will not inherit the kingdom of God. [7]

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, meekness, temperance.

23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Against such things there is no law.

26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

Let's not vainly provoke and envy each another.
