New Heart English Bible
1Brothers, even if someone is caught in some fault, you who are spiritual must restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness; looking to yourself so that you also are not tempted. 2Bear one another's burdens, and so you will fulfill the law of Christ. 3For if anyone thinks himself to be something when he is nothing, he deceives himself. 4But let each one test his own work, and then he will take pride in himself and not in his neighbor. 5For every person will bear his own load.
6But let him who is taught in the word share all good things with him who teaches. 7Do not be deceived. God is not mocked, for whatever a person sows, that he will also reap. 8For he who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption. But he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap everlasting life. 9Let us not be weary in doing good, for we will reap in due season, if we do not give up. 10So then, as we have opportunity, let us do what is good toward all people, and especially toward those who are of the household of the faith.
11See with what large letters I write to you with my own hand. 12As many as desire to make a good showing in the flesh, they compel you to be circumcised; only that they may not be persecuted for the cross of Christ. 13For even they who receive circumcision do not keep the law themselves, but they desire to have you circumcised, that they may boast in your flesh. 14But far be it from me to boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. 15For neither is circumcision anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation. 16As many as walk by this rule, peace and mercy be on them, and on God's Israel.
17From now on, let no one cause me any trouble, for I bear the marks of Jesus branded on my body.
18The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers. Amen.
