Galations 2


2:1 Then fourteen years after I went again to Jerusalem with
 Barnabas, and took Titus with [me] also.
2:2 And I went by revelation, and communicated to them that
 gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to them
 who were of reputation, lest by any means I should run, or had
 run in vain.
2:3 But neither Titus, who was with me, being a Greek, was
 compelled to be circumcised:
2:4 And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who
 came in privately to spy out our liberty which we have in
 Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:
2:5 To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour;
 that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.
2:6 But of these, who seemed to be somewhat, (whatever they
 were, it maketh no matter to me: God accepteth no man's
 person:) for they who seemed [to be somewhat], in conference
 added nothing to me:
2:7 But on the contrary, when they saw that the gospel of the
 uncircumcision was committed to me, as [the gospel] of the
 circumcision [was] to Peter;
2:8 (For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship
 of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me towards the
 Gentiles:)
2:9 And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars,
 perceived the grace that was given to me, they gave to me and
 Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we [should go] to
 the heathen, and they to the circumcision.
2:10 Only [they would] that we should remember the poor; the
 same which I also was forward to do.
2:11 But when Peter had come to Antioch, I withstood him to the
 face, because he was to be blamed.
2:12 For before that certain came from James, he used to eat
 with the Gentiles: but when they had come, he withdrew, and
 separated himself, fearing them who were of the circumcision.
2:13 And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; so that
 Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation.
2:14 But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to
 the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter before [them] all, If
 thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not
 as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do
 the Jews?
2:15 We [who are] Jews by nature, and not sinners of the
 Gentiles,
2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the
 law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in
 Jesus Christ, that we may be justified by the faith of Christ,
 and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law
 shall no flesh be justified.
2:17 But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we
 ourselves also are found sinners, [is] therefore Christ the
 minister of sin? By no means.
2:18 For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make
 myself a transgressor.
2:19 For I through the law am dead to the law, that I may live
 to God.
2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless, I live; yet not
 I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in
 the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me,
 and gave himself for me.
2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness
 is [attainable] by the law, then Christ hath died in vain.
