Galatians 2

Sawyer(i) 1 (1:6) Then after fourteen years I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, taking also Titus; 2 and I went up by a revelation, and proposed to them the gospel which I preach to the gentiles, but privately to persons of distinction, lest I should run or had run in vain. 3 But Titus who was with me, and was a Greek, was not compelled to be circumcised; 4 but on account of false brothers brought in secretly to act as spies against our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, to bring us into servitude, 5 we did not yield to them by subjection, for an hour, that the truth of the gospel might continue with you. 6 But from those of distinction, whatever they were it makes no difference to me,—God is partial to no man,—for those of distinction added nothing to me, 7 but on the contrary seeing that I was intrusted with the gospel of the uncircumcision, as Peter was of the circumcision,— 8 for he that operated in Peter for the apostleship of the circumcision, operated also in me for the gentiles,— 9 and knowing the grace given me, James and Cephas and John, who were manifest pillars, gave to me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship that we should go to the gentiles and they to the circumcision; 10 only [they wished] that we should remember the poor, which I was also forward to do. 11 (1:7) But when Peter came to Antioch I opposed him to his face, because he was to blame. 12 For before some came from James he eat with the gentiles; but when they came, he withdrew and separated himself; fearing those of the circumcision; 13 and the other Jews also dissembled with him, so that Barnabas was carried away with their dissimulation. 14 But when I saw that they walked not correctly, according to the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter before all, If you being a Jew live after the manner of the gentiles, and not after the manner of the Jews, why do you compel the gentiles to practise Judaism? 15 For we Jews by race and not sinners of the gentiles, 16 knowing that a man is not justified by works of the law but by the faith of Jesus Christ, we also have believed in Jesus Christ, that we may be justified by faith and not by works of the law, because by works of the law shall no flesh be justified. 17 But if seeking to be justified by Christ we are found to be ourselves also sinners, is Christ then a minister of sin? By no means. 18 For if I build up again what I have destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. 19 For by a law I have died to the law, that I may live to God. 20 I am crucified with Christ; and I no longer live myself, but Christ lives in me; and the present life which I live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 21 I do not reject the grace of God; for if rightousness is through the law, then Christ died for nothing.
