B. Not Separated from Christ
2 Behold, I Paul say to you that if you become 1acircumcised, Christ will profit you 2nothing.
3 And I testify again to every man who becomes acircumcised that he is a debtor to do the whole law.
4 You have been 1brought to nought, separated from Christ, you who are being justified by alaw; you have 2bfallen from cgrace.
5 For we 1aby the Spirit 2bout of faith ceagerly await the 3dhope of erighteousness.
6 For ain Christ Jesus neither bcircumcision 1avails anything nor uncircumcision, but cfaith avails, 2operating through 3love.
7 You were arunning well. bWho hindered you that you would not believe and obey the 1ctruth?
8 This 1apersuasion is not of Him who bcalls you.
9 A little 1aleaven leavens the 1whole lump.
10 I am aconfident in the Lord concerning you that you will be bof no other mind; but he who is ctroubling you shall bear the judgment, whoever he may be.
11 But I, brothers, if I still preach 1acircumcision, why am I still being bpersecuted? Then the cstumbling block of the 1cross has been annulled.
12 I wish that those aupsetting you would even 1cut themselves off.
