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.
