King James Bible : Galatians : Chapter 5


5:1
Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
5:2
Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.
5:3
For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.
5:4
Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
5:5
For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.
5:6
For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.
5:7
Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?
5:8
This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you.
5:9
A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.
5:10
I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgement, whosoever he be.
5:11
And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer persecution? then is the offence of the cross ceased.
5:12
I would they were even cut off which trouble you.
5:13
For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
5:14
For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
5:15
But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.
5:16
This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
5:17
For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
5:18
But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
5:19
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
5:20
Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
5:21
Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
5:22
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
5:23
Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
5:24
And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
5:25
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
5:26
Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
