Paul's Letter to the Galatians (WEB)

6:1 Brothers, even if a man is caught in some fault, you who are spiritual must restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness; looking to yourself so that you also aren't tempted. 6:2Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. 6:3For if a man thinks himself to be something when he is nothing, he deceives himself. 6:4But let each man test his own work, and then he will take pride in himself and not in his neighbor. 6:5For each man will bear his own burden. 6:6But let him who is taught in the word share all good things with him who teaches. 6:7Don't be deceived. God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that will he also reap. 6:8For he who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption. But he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. 6:9Let us not be weary in doing good, for we will reap in due season, if we don't give up. 6:10So then, as we have opportunity, let us work that which is good toward all men, and especially toward those who are of the household of the faith.

6:11See with what large letters I write to you with my own hand. 6:12As many as desire to look good in the flesh, they compel you to be circumcised; only that they may not be persecuted for the cross of Christ. 6:13For even they who receive circumcision don't keep the law themselves, but they desire to have you circumcised, that they may boast in your flesh. 6:14But far be it from me to boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. 6:15For in Christ Jesus neither is circumcision anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation. 6:16As many as will walk by this rule, peace and mercy be on them, and on God's Israel. 6:17From now on, let no one cause me any trouble, for I bear the marks of the Lord Jesus branded on my body. 6:18The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers. Amen.
