Counter

Practical: A Defense of Believer's Liberty (5:1-6:10)

A life apart from Torah (5:1-12)

Turning To Torah Ruins Grace

5:1 Stand firm therefore in the liberty by which Mashiach has made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of slavery.

5:2 Look, I, Paulos, (Παῦλος) say to you, that if you accept circumcision, Mashiach will be of no advantage to you at all.

5:3 For I testify again to every man who accepts circumcision that he is obligated to keep the entire Torah.

5:4 You who are declared right by Torah have severed yourselves from Mashiach, you have fallen from favour.

5:5 For we through the Ruach by faith, eagerly wait for the expectation of righteousness.

5:6 For in Mashiach Yeshua (ישוע) neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything, But faith working through love (agape).

5:7 You were running well; who held you back from obeying the truth?

5:8 This persuasion comes not of him that calls you.

5:9 A little leaven leavened the whole lump.

5:10 I have confidence in you, in Adonay, that you will have no other mind; but he who troubles you shall bear his judgment, whoever he is.

5:11 And I, Achim, if I  still proclaim circumcision, why am I still persecuted? In that case the offense of the stake has been done away with.

5:12 I would they were even cut off which trouble you.

5:13 For, achim, you have been called to liberty; only [use] not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.

5:14 For all the Torah is fulfilled in one word, [even] in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

5:15 But if you bite and devour one another, take heed that you be not consumed one of another.

5:16 This I say then: "Walk in the Ruach, and you shall  by no means accomplish the lust of the flesh."

5:17 For the flesh lusts against the Ruach, and the Ruach against the flesh: And these are opposed one to the other: so to keep you from doing the things you want to do.

5:18 But if you be led of the Ruach, you are not under the Torah

5:19 Now the works of the flesh are well known, which are [these]; adultery, fornication, uncleanness, indecency,

5:20 Idolatry, drug sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, fits of rage, selfish ambition, division; split parties.

5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, wild parties, and the like - of which I forewarn you, even as I also said before, that those who practise such as these shall not inherit the kingdom of Elohim (אלהים).

5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, gracious, trustworthiness,

5:23 Meekness, Self control: against such there is no Torah.

5:24 And they that are Mashiach's have impaled the flesh with the affections and lusts.

5:25 If we live in the Ruach, let us also halak in the Ruach.

5:26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
