New International Version
You who are trying to be justified by the law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace.
King James Bible

but the people of Israel, who pursued the law as the way of righteousness, have not attained their goal.
Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it.
See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.
2 Peter 3:17
Therefore, dear friends, since you have been forewarned, be on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of the lawless and fall from your secure position.
