3 Finally, my brethren, arejoice in the Lord. For me to write the same things to you is not tedious, but for you it is safe.
2 bBeware of dogs, beware of cevil workers, dbeware of the mutilation! 3 For we are ethe circumcision, fwho worship 1God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh, 4 though gI also might have confidence in the flesh. If anyone else thinks he may have confidence in the flesh, I hmore so: 5 circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, iof the tribe of Benjamin, ja Hebrew of the Hebrews; concerning the law, ka Pharisee; 6 concerning zeal, lpersecuting the church; concerning the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.
7 But mwhat things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ.
