Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:1 - It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:2 - Mark my words! I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no value to you at all.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:3 - Again I declare to every man who lets himself be circumcised that he is obligated to obey the whole law.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:4 - You who are trying to be justified by the law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:5 - For through the Spirit we eagerly await by faith the righteousness for which we hope.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:6 - For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:7 - You were running a good race. Who cut in on you to keep you from obeying the truth?

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:8 - That kind of persuasion does not come from the one who calls you.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:9 - “A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:10 - I am confident in the Lord that you will take no other view. The one who is throwing you into confusion, whoever that may be, will have to pay the penalty.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:11 - Brothers and sisters, if I am still preaching circumcision, why am I still being persecuted? In that case the offense of the cross has been abolished.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:12 - As for those agitators, I wish they would go the whole way and emasculate themselves!

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:13 - You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh[fn]; rather, serve one another humbly in love.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:14 - For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:15 - If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:16 - So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:17 - For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever[fn] you want.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:18 - But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:19 - The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery;

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:20 - idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:21 - and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:22 - But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:23 - gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:24 - Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:25 - Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:26 - Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.
NIV Footnotes
In contexts like this, the Greek word for flesh (sarx) refers to the sinful state of human beings, often presented as a power in opposition to the Spirit; also in verses 16, 17, 19 and 24; and in 6:8.
Lev. 19:18
Or you do not do what
