11 See with what large letters I have written to you (A)with my own hand! 12 All who want (B)to make a good showing in the flesh try to (C)compel you to be circumcised, simply so that they (D)will not be persecuted for the cross of Christ. 13 For those who [a]are circumcised do not even (E)keep [b]the Law themselves, but they want to have you circumcised so that they may (F)boast in your flesh. 14 But (G)[c]far be it from me to boast, (H)except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, (I)through [d]which the world has been crucified to me, and (J)I to the world. 15 For (K)neither is circumcision anything, nor uncircumcision, but a (L)new [e]creation. 16 And all who will follow this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the (M)Israel of God.

17 From now on let no one cause trouble for me, for I bear on my body the [f](N)marks of Jesus.

18 (O)The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be (P)with your spirit, (Q)brothers and sisters. Amen.
