Galatians 6Disciples’ Literal New Testament (DLNT)
6 1 Brothers, even[a] if a person is overtaken[b] in some trespass, you spiritual ones be restoring[c] such a one in a spirit of gentleness, looking-out-for yourself thatyou also not be tempted. 2 Be carrying one another’s burdens[d], and in this manner you will fulfill the law of Christ. 3 For if anyone thinks that he is something while being nothing, he is deceiving himself.
Each Person Has a Boast Only With Reference To His Own Proven Work
4 But let each one prove[e] his own work— and then he will have the boast with reference to himself alone, and not with reference to the other person.5 For each one will carry his own load[f].
We Will Reap What We Sow. Plant Good Works To Reap a Good Harvest
6 And let the one being instructed-in the word share with the one instructing in all good things.7 Do not be deceived— God is not mocked. For whatever a person sows, this he will also reap. 8 Because the one sowing to his own flesh will reap decay from the flesh. But the one sowing to the Spirit will reap eternal life from the Spirit. 9 And let us not grow-weary while doing good. For in His own time we not losing-heart[g] will reap. 10 So then, while we have[h] opportunity[i], let us be working good to everyone, but especially to the family-members of the faith.
Those Wanting Your Circumcision Are Seeking To Boast In Your Flesh, Not To Keep The Law
11 See with what large letters I wrote to you with my own hand! 12 All who want to make-a-good-showing[j] in the flesh— these ones are compelling you to receive-circumcision only in order that they may not be persecuted for the cross of Christ. 13 For not even the ones receiving-circumcision themselves are keeping the Law. But they want you to receive-circumcision in order that they might boast in your flesh.
I Will Boast Only In The Cross of Christ. Peace Be Upon All Who Do The Same
14 But for me, may it never be that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which[k]the world has been crucified tome, and I to the world. 15 For neither circumcision nor uncircumcision is anything, but a new creation. 16 And all who will walk-in-line with this standard[l]— peace and mercy be upon them, and[m] upon the Israel of God. 17 Henceforth[n] let no one be causing troubles for me. For I bear the brand-marks[o]of Jesus on my body.
18 May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers. Amen.
Galatians 6:1That is, even if one is caught in an explicit sin, do not respond in the conceit that you yourself are invulnerable.
