Modern Literal Version

[Galatians 6]

     6:1 Brethren, even if a man is overtaken in any trespass, youĎ, the spiritual, mendĎ such a one in a spirit of meekness; noting any trespass in yourself, lest you might also be tempted. 6:2 BearĎ the burdens of one another and thus fulfillĎ the law of the Christ. 6:3 For* if anyone thinks himself to be something, being nothing, he is deceiving himself. 6:4 But let each one test his own work and then he will have his boasting toward himself alone and not toward the other. 6:5 For* each onewill be bearing his own load.

     6:6 But let him, who is instructed in the word, share in all good things with the one who instructs. 6:7 DoĎ not be misled. God is not ridiculed; for* whatever a man sows, he will also be reaping this thing. 6:8 Because he who is sowing to his own flesh will be reaping corruption fromhis flesh, but he who is sowing to the Spirit will be reaping everlasting life from the Spirit. 6:9Now we should not be depressed in well doing; for* we will be reaping in our own time, if we do not faint. 6:10 Therefore consequently*, as we have opportunity, we should work what is the good thing toward all men but especially in the household of the faith.

     6:11 BeholdĎ, how-large the letters of the alphabet, I wrote to youĎ with my own hand.

     6:12 As many as wish to have a good* countenance in the flesh, these are urging youĎ to be circumcised; only in order that they may not be persecuted for the cross of the Christ. 6:13 For* not even those who have been circumcised themselves observe the law, but they wish youĎ to be circumcised, in order that they may boast in yourĎ flesh. 6:14 But let it not happen for me to boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom the world has been crucified to me and I to the world. 6:15 For* neither anything circumcision nor uncircumcision prevails in Christ Jesus, but a new creation. 6:16 And as many as will be marching by this standard*, peace is upon them and mercy and upon the Israel of God.

     6:17 Furthermore let no one be harassing me, for* I bear the brands of the Lord Jesus on my body.

     6:18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ is with yourĎ spirit, brethren. Amen.
