1 Then after fourteen years I again went up to Yerushalayim, with Barnaḇah, taking Titus along too.
2 And I went up by revelation, and laid before them that Good News which I proclaim among the gentiles, but separately to those who were esteemed, lest somehow I run, or had run, in vain.
3 But not even Titus who was with me, though a Yawanite, was compelled to be circumcised.
4 But as for the false brothers, sneakingly brought in, who sneaked in to spy out our freedom which we have in Mashiaḥ 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 in order to enslave us,
5 to these we did not yield in subjection, not even for an hour, so that the truth of the Good News remains with you.
6 But from those who were esteemed to be whatever – what they were, it makes no difference to me, Elohim shows no partiality – for those who were esteemed contributed naught to me.
7 But on the contrary, when they saw that the Good News to the uncircumcised had been entrusted to me, even as Kĕpha to the circumcised –
8 for He who worked in Kĕpha to make him an emissary to the circumcised also worked in me for the gentiles.
9 So when Ya’aqoḇ, Kĕpha, and Yoḥanan, who seemed to be supports, came to know the favour that had been given to me, they gave me and Barnaḇah the right hand of fellowship, with purpose of we unto the gentiles and they to the circumcised,
10 only that we might remember the poor, which I myself was eager to do.
11 And when Kĕpha had come to Antioḵeia, I withstood him to his face, because he was at fault.
12 For before some came from Ya’aqoḇ, he was eating with the gentiles, but when they came, he began to withdraw and separate himself, in fear of those of the circumcision.
13 And the rest of the Yahuḏim joined him in hypocrisy, so that even Barnaḇah was led away by their hypocrisy.
14 But when I saw that they are not walking straight according to the truth of the Good News, I said to Kĕpha before them all, “If you, being a Yahuḏi, live as a gentile and not as the Yahuḏim, why do you compel gentiles to live as Yahuḏim?
15 We, Yahuḏim by nature, and not of the gentiles, sinners,
16 knowing that a man is not declared right by works of Torah, but through belief in 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 ha’Mashiaḥ, even we have believed in Mashiaḥ 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏, in order to be declared right by belief in Mashiaḥ and not by works of Torah, because by works of Torah no flesh shall be declared right.
17 “And if, while seeking to be declared right by Mashiaḥ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is Mashiaḥ then a servant of sin? Let it not be!
18 “For if I rebuild what I overthrew, I establish myself a transgressor.
19 “For through Torah I died to Torah, in order to live to Elohim.
20 “I have been impaled with Mashiaḥ, and I no longer live, but Mashiaḥ lives in me. And that which I now live in the flesh I live by belief in the Bĕn of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 who loved me and gave Himself for me.
21 “I do not put aside the favour of Elohim, for if righteousness is through Torah, then Mashiaḥ died for naught.”
