Galatians 6

 

 

Introduction
1He moves them to deal mildly with a brother that has slipped,
2and to bear one another's burden;
6to be liberal to their teachers,
9and not weary of well-doing.
12He shows what they intend that preach circumcision.
14He glories in nothing, save in the cross of Christ.
