H. Having Been Crucified
to the Religious World
to Live a New Creation
11 See with what 1large letters I have written to you with my aown hand.
12 As many as desire to make a 1good show 2in the flesh, these compel you to be acircumcised, but only that they may not be bpersecuted for the ccross of Christ.
13 For neither do they that become circumcised akeep the law themselves, but they desire you to be circumcised that they may boast bin your flesh.
14 But far be it from me to aboast except in the 1bcross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through 2whom the 3world has been ccrucified to me and I to the world.
15 For neither is 1acircumcision anything nor uncircumcision, but a 1bnew creation is what matters.
16 And as many as 1walk by this 2arule, 3bpeace be upon them and mercy, even upon the 4cIsrael of God.
