Coverdale(i) 1 Stonde fast therfore in the libertye wherwith Christ hath made vs fre, and be not wrapped agayne in the yocke off bondage. 2 Beholde, I Paul saye vnto you: Yf ye be circumcysed, Christ profiteth you nothinge at all. 3 I testifye agayne vnto euery man which is circumcysed, that he is bounde to kepe the whole lawe. 4 Ye are gone quyte from Christ, as many off you as wylbe made righteous by the lawe, and are fallen from grace. 5 But we wayte in the sprete off hope, to be made righteous by faith. 6 For in Christ Iesu nether is circumcision eny thinge worth ner vncircumcision, but faith which by loue is mightie in operacion. 7 Ye ranne well, who was a let vnto you, that ye shulde not obeye the trueth? 8 Soch councell is not of him that hath called you. 9 A litle leuen sowreth the whole lompe of dowe. 10 I haue trust towarde you in ye LORDE, that ye wylbe none otherwyse mynded. But he that troubleth you, shal beare his iudgment, what so euer he be. 11 Brethren yf I yet preach circumcision, why do I suffre persecucion? then had the slaunder off the crosse ceassed. 12 Wolde God they were roted out fro amoge you, which trouble you. 13 But brethre, ye are called vnto liberty, onely let not youre libertie be an occasion vnto the flesh, but by loue serue one another. 14 For all the lawe is fulfylled in one worde, namely in this: loue thy neghboure as thy selfe. 15 But yf ye byte and deuoure one another, take hede, that ye be not consumed one of another. 16 I saye: Walke in the sprete, and so shal ye not fulfill the lustes off the flesshe. 17 For the flesh lusteth agaynst the sprete, and the sprete agaynst the flesh. These are contrary one to the other, so that ye can not do that which ye wolde: 18 But and yf ye be led of the sprete, then are ye not vnder the lawe. 19 The dedes of ye flesh are manifest, which are these: Aduoutrye, whordome, vnclenes, wantanes, 20 Idolatrye, witchcraft, hatred, variaunce, zele, wrath, stryfe, sedicion, sectes, 21 envyenge, murthur, dronkennes, glotony, and soch like: of the which I tell you before, as I haue tolde you in tyme past, that they which commytte soch, shal not inheret the kyngdome of God. 22 But the frute of the sprete, is loue, ioye, peace, longe sufferinge, getlenes, goodnesse, faithfulnes, 23 mekenesse, teperaunce, Agaynst soch is not ye lawe: 24 But they that are Christes, haue crucified their flesh, with the lustes and desyres. 25 Yf we lyue in the sprete, let vs walke also in the sprete. 26 Let vs not be vayne glorious, prouokinge one another, and envyenge another.
