Thank You Father,
Give me meekness G-d, may people not blaspheme Your Name on account of my actions. Consume all hypocrisy in me.
May I confess and repent, in Jesus Name, Amen.
“Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
Psalms 139:23-24 KJV
“Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you?
let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.”
James 3:13-18 KJV
“Now, in these last sentences, I want to emphasize in the bold scrawls of my personal handwriting the immense importance of what I have written to you.
These people who are attempting to force the ways of circumcision on you have only one motive: They want an easy way to look good before others, lacking the courage to live by a faith that shares Christ’s suffering and death.
All their talk about the law is gas.
They them selves don’t keep the law!
And they are highly selective in the laws they do observe.
They only want you to be circumcised so they can boast of their success in recruiting you to their side.
That is contemptible!”
Galatians 6:11-13 MSG
“As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.”
Galatians 6:12 KJV
“Those who desire to make a good showing in the flesh try to compel you to be circumcised, simply so that they will not be persecuted for the cross of Christ.”
Galatians 6:12 NASB
“Those who want to make a good impression and a fine show in the flesh would try to compel you to receive circumcision, simply so that they may escape being persecuted for allegiance to the cross of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).”
Galatians 6:12 AMPC
“Those men who are trying to force you to be circumcised are only doing it so that their people will accept them.
They are afraid they will be persecuted if they follow only the cross of Christ.”
Galatians 6:12 ERV
“Whoever wants to look good by human standards will try to get you to be circumcised, but only so they won’t be harassed for the cross of Christ.”
Galatians 6:12 CEB
“Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God; Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.”
2 Corinthians 3:5-6 KJV
