Galatians 5 (21st Century King James Version)
21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
5 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.
3 For I testify again to every man who is circumcised, that he is a debtor to keep the whole law.
4 Christ then becomes of no effect unto you, whosoever of you claim justification 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 anything, nor uncircumcision, but faith which worketh by love.
7 Ye were running well; who hindered you, that ye should not obey the truth?
8 This persuasion cometh not from 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 not otherwise minded; but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be.
11 And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why then do I yet suffer persecution? Then would the offense of the cross cease.
12 I would that they were even cut off which trouble you!
13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion of the flesh, but by love serve one another.
14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”
15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye not be consumed one by another.
16 This I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill 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.
18 But if ye are led by the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, and they are these: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, quarreling, rivalry, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 envying, murders, drunkenness, revelings, and such like. About these things I tell you again, as I have also told you in times past, that those who do such things shall not inherit the Kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
24 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its affections and lusts.
25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
26 Let us not be desirous of vainglory, provoking one another and envying one another.
