A.(11) Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand.
B.(12) As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.
C.(13) For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh.
D.(14) But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.
C’.(15) For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.
B’.(16) And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God. (17) From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.
A’.(18) Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
