Galatians 6 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

Brethren, if a man be occupied in any guilt, ye that be spiritual, inform ye such one in spirit of softness, beholding thyself, lest that thou be tempted.[a]

Each bear other's charges [Bear ye the charges the tother of the tother, or each of other], and so ye shall fulfill the law of Christ.

For who that troweth that he be aught, when he is nought, he beguileth himself. [For why if any man guesseth himself to be aught, when he is nought, he deceiveth himself.]

But each man prove his own work, and so he shall have glory [only] in himself, and not in another.

For each man shall bear his own charge.

He that is taught in word, commune he with him that teacheth him, in all goods. [Forsooth he that is taught by word, commune to him that teacheth him, in all good things.]

Do not ye err, God is not scorned; for those things that a man soweth, those things he shall reap [for why what things a man soweth, also these things he shall reap].

For he that soweth in his flesh, of the flesh he shall reap corruption; but he that soweth in the Spirit, of the Spirit he shall reap everlasting life.

And doing good fail we not [Forsooth we doing good, fail not]; for in his time we shall reap, not failing.

10 Therefore while we have time, work we good to all men; but most to them that be the home of the faith [but most to the household members of the faith].

11 See ye, what manner letters I have written to you with mine own hand.

12 For whoever will please in the flesh, these constrain you to be circumcised, only that they suffer not the persecution of Christ's cross.

13 For neither they that be circumcised keep the law; but they will that ye be circumcised, that they have glory in your flesh [but they will you to be circumcised, that they glory in your flesh].

14 But far be it from me to have glory [Forsooth be it far to me to glory], but in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified to me, and I to the world.

15 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision is any thing worth, nor prepuce, but a new creature.

16 And whoever follow this rule, peace on them, and mercy, and on Israel of God [peace upon them, and mercy, and upon Israel of God].

17 And hereafter no man be heavy to me; for I bear in my body the tokens of our Lord Jesus Christ. [From henceforth, no man be heavy to me; forsooth I bear in my body the tokens, or wounds, of our Lord Jesus Christ.]

18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brethren. Amen.

  1. Galatians 6:1 Brethren, and if a man be before occupied, or overcome, in any guilt, or trespass, ye that be spiritual, teach such a manner man in the spirit of softness, or meekness, beholding thyself, that and thou be not tempted.

Galatians 6 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

He exhorts them to brotherly love, and to bear with one another. In the end, he warns them to beware of circumcision.

Brethren, if anyone has fallen by chance into any fault, you who are spiritual should help to amend him, in the spirit of humility – considering yourself, lest you also be tempted. Bear one another’s burden, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

If any person seems to himself to be something, when indeed he is nothing, the same deceives himself in his imagination.

Let each prove his own work, and then he will have rejoicing in his own self, and not in another. For every person will reap for himself.

Let him who is taught in the word minister to the one who teaches him, in all good things. Be not deceived: God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows, that he will reap. He who sows to his flesh will from the flesh reap corruption. But he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap life everlasting. Let us not be weary of well-doing. For when the time comes, we will reap without weariness. 10 Therefore, while we have time, let us do good to all men, and especially to them who are of the household of faith.

11 See how large a letter I have written to you with my own hand.

12 Those who desire to please carnally by outward appearances constrain you to be circumcised only because they do not want to suffer persecution with the cross of Christ. 13 For they themselves who are circumcised do not keep the law, but desire to have you circumcised so that they may glory in your flesh.

14 God forbid that I should glory but in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, whereby the world is crucified to me, and I to the world. 15 For in Christ Jesus neither does circumcision avail anything at all, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. 16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel that belongs to God.

17 From henceforth let no one put me to trouble. For I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus. 18 Brethren, may the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.

To the Galatians.

Galatians 6 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

1 Now he entreateth particularly of charity toward such as offend, 6 toward the Minsters of the word, 10 and those that are of the household of faith: 12 Not like unto such who have a counterfeit zeal of the Law, 13 glorying in the mangling of the flesh, 14 and not in the cross of Christ.

Brethren, [a]If a man be [b]suddenly taken in any offense, ye which are [c]spiritual, [d]restore such one with the [e]spirit of meekness, [f]considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

[g]Bear ye one another’s burden, and so fulfill the [h]Law of Christ.

For if any man seem to himself, that he is somewhat, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself in his imagination.

But let every man prove his own work: and then shall he have rejoicing in himself only and not in another.

[i]For every man shall bear his own burden.

[j]Let him that is taught in the word, make him that hath taught him, partaker of [k]all his goods.

[l]Be not deceived: God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

For he that soweth to his [m]flesh, shall of the flesh reap corruption: but he that soweth to the spirit, shall of the spirit reap life everlasting.

[n]Let us not therefore be weary of well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

10 [o]While we have therefore time, let us do good unto all men, but especially unto them, which are of the household of faith.

11 [p]Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand.

12 As many as desire to make a [q]fair show in the [r]flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised, only because they would not suffer persecution for the [s]cross of Christ.

13 For they themselves which are circumcised keep not the Law, but desire to have you circumcised, that they might rejoice in [t]your flesh.

14 [u]But God forbid that I should [v]rejoice, but in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, whereby the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.

15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.

16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace shall be upon them, and mercy, and upon the [w]Israel of God.

17 [x]From henceforth let no man put me to business: for I bear, in my body the [y]marks of the [z]Lord Jesus.

18 [aa]Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your [ab]spirit, Amen.

Galatians 6 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself. But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. For every man shall bear his own burden. Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things. Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. 10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

11 Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand. 12 As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ. 13 For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh. 14 But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. 15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. 16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

17 From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.

18 Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
