7 You were running well. Who prevented you from being persuaded regarding the truth?C,o 8 This persuasion does not come from the one who calls you.p 9 A little leavenD leavens the whole batch of dough. 10 I myself am persuaded in the Lord you will not accept any other view. But whoever it is that is confusing you will pay the penalty.q 11 Now brothers and sisters, if I still preach circumcision, why am I still persecuted? In that case the offense of the crossr has been abolished. 12 I wish those who are disturbing you might also let themselves be mutilated!
13 For you were calleds to be free, brothers and sisters; only don’t use this freedom as an opportunityE for the flesh, but serve one another through love. 14 For the whole law is fulfilledt in one statement: Love your neighbor as yourself.F,u 15 But if you bite and devourv one another, watch out, or you will be consumed by one another.
