Galatians 6:11-18 Mounce Reverse-Interlinear New Testament (MOUNCE)
11 See with what large pēlikos letters gramma I am writing graphō to you hymeis with ho my emos own hand cheir! 12 Those hosos who want thelō to make a good showing euprosōpeō in en the flesh sarx, they houtos are the ones trying to force anankazō you hymeis to be circumcised peritemnō— only monon so that hina they may diōkō not mē be persecuted diōkō for the ho cross stauros of ho Christ Christos. 13 For gar even oude those ho who are circumcised peritemnō do phylassō not themselves autos keep phylassō the law nomos, but alla they want thelō you hymeis to be circumcised peritemnō so that hina they may boast kauchaomai in en · ho your hymeteros flesh sarx. 14 But de may ginomai I egō never mē boast kauchaomai, except ei mē in en the ho cross stauros of ho our hēmeis Lord kyrios Jesus Iēsous Christ Christos, through dia which hos the world kosmos has been crucified stauroō to me egō, and I kagō to the world kosmos. 15 For gar neither oute circumcision peritomē nor oute uncircumcision akrobystia is eimi anything tis, but alla a new kainos creation ktisis. 16 As for kai all hosos who will follow stoicheō · ho this houtos rule kanōn—may peace eirēnē and kai mercy eleos be upon epi them autos, even kai upon epi the ho Israel Israēl of ho God theos.
17 From now on ho let parechō no one mēdeis cause parechō me egō trouble kopos, for gar I egō bear bastazō the ho marks stigma of ho Jesus Iēsous on en · ho my egō body sōma.
18 May the ho grace charis of ho our hēmeis Lord kyrios Jesus Iēsous Christ Christos be with meta · ho your hymeis spirit pneuma, my brothers adelphos. Amen amēn.
Galatians 6:11-18 Expanded Bible (EXB)
Paul Ends His Letter
11 See what large letters I use to write this ·myself [L with my own hand; C added to authenticate the letter; the rest had likely been dictated]. 12 Some people are trying to force you to be circumcised ·so the Jews will accept them [or to impress others by external standards; L to make a good showing in the flesh]. They do this only to avoid persecution for the cross of Christ [C the Gospel message of Christ’s sacrificial death on the cross]. 13 [L For] Those who are circumcised do not obey the law themselves, but they want you to be circumcised so they can ·brag [boast] ·about what they forced you to do [L in your flesh]. 14 ·I hope I will never [L May it never be that I] ·brag [boast] about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. ·Through that cross [or Through Jesus Christ; L …through which/whom] the world has been crucified to me and I have been crucified to the world. 15 It ·is not important [makes no difference; is nothing] if a man is circumcised or uncircumcised. The important thing is ·being the new people God has made [L a new creation; 2 Cor. 5:17]. 16 Peace and mercy to those who ·follow [walk/live by] this rule—and to ·all of God’s people [L the Israel of God; C either: (1) Jewish Christians or (2) the church as the “new Israel”].
17 ·So [or In conclusion; or From now on] do not give me any more trouble. [L For] I ·have scars on my body that show I belong to Jesus [L bear the marks of Jesus on my body; C from his many beatings for the Gospel; perhaps also indicating his “branding” as a slave of Jesus Christ].
18 My brothers and sisters, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
