Why does it have strange spelling?
1 He moueth them to deale mildly with a brother that hath slipped, 2 and to beare one anothers burden. 6 To bee liberall to their teachers, 9 and not wearie of well doing. 12 He sheweth what they intend that preach circumcision. 14 He glorieth in nothing, saue in the Crosse of Christ.
Brethren, if a man bee ouertaken in a fault: yee which are spirituall, restore such a one in the spirit of meeknesse, considering thy selfe least thou also be tempted.1
Beare ye one anothers burthens, and so fulfill the Law of Christ.
For if a man thinke himselfe to be something, when he is nothing, hee deceiueth himselfe.
But let euery man prooue his owne worke, and then shall he haue reioycing in him selfe alone, and not in an other.
For euery man shall beare his owne burthen.
Let him that is taught in the word, communicate vnto him that teacheth, in all good things.
Be not deceiued, God is not mocked: for whatsoeuer a man soweth, that shall he also reape.
For hee that soweth to his flesh, shall of the flesh reape corruption: but he that soweth to the spirit, shall of the spirit reape life euerlasting.
And let vs not bee weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reape, if we faint not.
As we haue therefore opportunitie, let vs doe good vnto all men, especially vnto them who are of the household of faith.
The election of the Saints.
Ye see how large a letter I haue written vnto you with mine owne hand.
As many as desire to make a faire shew in the flesh, they constraine you to be Circumcised: onely least they should suffer persecution for the Crosse of Christ.
For neither they themselues who are circumcised, keepe the Law, but desire to haue you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh.
The election of the Saints.
But God forbid that I should glory, saue in the Crosse of our Lord Iesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified vnto me, & I vnto the world.14
For in Christ Iesus neither circumcision auaileth any thing nor vncircumcision, but a new creature.
And as many as walke according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercie, and vpon the Israel of God.
From henceforth let no man trouble mee, for I beare in my body the markes of the Lord Iesus.
Brethren, the grace of our Lord Iesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen. Unto the Galatians, written from Rome.
