Galatians 2
1Then fourteen years after I went up again to Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace] with Bar-Nabba [son of rest], and took Titus [nurse] with [me] also.
2And I went up by revelation, and communicated unto them that Gospel (joyful message) which I preach among the Goyim [Gentiles], but privately to them which were of reputation, lest by any means I should run, or had run, in vain.
3But neither Titus [nurse], who was with me, being a Greek [unstable: the miry one], was compelled to be circumcised:
4And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privately to spy out our liberty which we have in Moshiach [Messiah] Yeshua [God is Salvation], that they might bring us into bondage:
5To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the tof the Gospel (joyful message) might continue with you.
6But of these who seemed to be somewhat (boasters), (whatsoever they were, it makes no matter to me: God-The Father accepts no man’s person:) for they who seemed [to be somewhat] in conference added nothing to me:
7But contrariwise, when they saw that the Gospel (joyful message) of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as [the Gospel (joyful message)] of the circumcision [was] unto Kefa [pebble] [pebble];
8(For he that wrought effectually in Kefa [pebble] [pebble] to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Goyim [Gentiles]:)
9And when Ya’akov [heal-grabber], Kefa [pebble], and Yochanan [Yehovah has graced], who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Bar-Nabba [son of rest] the right hands of fellowship; that we [should go] unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision.
10Only [they would] that we should remember the poor; the same which I also was forward to do.
11But when Kefa [pebble] [pebble] was come to Antioch [speedy as a chariot], I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed.
12For before that certain came from Ya’akov [heal-grabber], he did eat with the Goyim [Gentiles]: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision.
13And the other Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah] dissembled (used deceit; pretended; feigned) likewise with him; insomuch that Bar-Nabba [son of rest] also was carried away with their hypocrisy.
14But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the tof the Gospel (joyful message), I said unto Kefa [pebble] [pebble] before [them] all, If youi, being a Jewish person, live after the manner of Goyim [Gentiles], and not as do the Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah], why compelles youi the Goyim [Gentiles] to live as do the Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah]?
15We [who are] Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah] by nature, and not sinners of the Goyim [Gentiles],
16Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah], even we have believed in Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah], that we might be justified by the faith of Moshiach [Messiah], and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
17But if, while we seek to be justified by Moshiach [Messiah], we ourselves also are found sinners, [is] therefore Moshiach [Messiah] the minister of sin? May it not be.
18For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor.
19For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God-The Father.
20I am crucified with Moshiach [Messiah]: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Moshiach [Messiah] lives in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God-The Father, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
21I do not frustrate the grace of God-The Father: for if righteousness [come] by the law, then Moshiach [Messiah] is dead in vain.
