Unchecked Copy BoxGal 2:2 - I went up by revelation, and I laid before them the Good News which I preach among the Goyim, but privately before those who were respected, for fear that I might be running, or had run, in vain.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 2:3 - But not even Titus, who was with me, being a Yevanit, was compelled to be circumcised.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 2:4 - This was because of the false brothers secretly brought in, who stole in to spy out our liberty which we have in Messiah Yeshua, that they might bring us into bondage;
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 2:5 - to whom we gave no place in the way of subjection, not for an hour, that the truth of the Good News might continue with you.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 2:6 - But from those who were reputed to be important (whatever they were, it makes no difference to me; God doesn't show partiality to man) -- they, I say, who were respected imparted nothing to me,
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 2:7 - but to the contrary, when they saw that I had been entrusted with the Good News for the uncircumcision, even as Rock with the Good News for the circumcision
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 2:8 - (for he who appointed Rock to the apostleship of the circumcision appointed me also to the Goyim);
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 2:9 - and when they perceived the grace that was given to me, Ya`akov and Kefa and Yochanan, they who were reputed to be pillars, gave to me and Bar-Nabba the right hand of fellowship, that we should go to the Goyim, and they to the circumcision.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 2:10 - They only asked us to remember the poor -- which very thing I was also zealous to do.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 2:13 - And the rest of the Yehudim joined him in his hypocrisy; so that even Bar-Nabba was carried away with their hypocrisy.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 2:14 - But when I saw that they didn't walk uprightly according to the truth of the Good News, I said to Rock before them all, "If you, being a Yehudi, live as the Goyim do, and not as the Yehudim do, why do you compel the Goyim to live as the Yehudim do?
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 2:15 - "We, being Yehudim by nature, and not Goy sinners,
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 2:16 - yet knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but through the faith of Yeshua the Messiah, even we believed in Messiah Yeshua, that we might be justified by faith in Messiah, and not by the works of the law, because no flesh will be justified by the works of the law.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 2:17 - But if, while we sought to be justified in Messiah, we ourselves also were found sinners, is Messiah a servant of sin? Certainly not!
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 2:18 - For if I build up again those things which I destroyed, I prove myself a law-breaker.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 2:19 - For I, through the law, died to the law, that I might live to God.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 2:20 - I have been crucified with Messiah, and it is no longer I that live, but Messiah living in me. That life which I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself up for me.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 2:21 - I don't make void the grace of God. For if righteousness is through the law, then Messiah died for nothing!"
