You are separated from Christ, you who are trying to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace. (A)For through the Spirit, by faith, we await the hope of righteousness. (B)For in Christ Jesus, neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith working through love.[a]

Be Not Misled.[b]

Footnotes

  1. 5:6 Cf. Rom 2:25–26; 1 Cor 7:19; Gal 6:15. The Greek for faith working through love or “faith expressing itself through love” can also be rendered as “faith energized by (God’s) love.”
  2. 5:7–12 Paul addresses the Galatians directly: with questions (Gal 5:7, 11), a proverb (Gal 5:9), a statement (Gal 5:8), and biting sarcasm (Gal 5:12), seeking to persuade the Galatians to break with those trying to add law and circumcision to Christ as a basis for salvation.
