- Notes (no notes if red),
But I, brethren
am I still
of the cross
has been abolished
But as for me,
brothers, if I am still preaching circumcision [as I had done before I met Christ; and as
some accuse me of doing now, as necessary for salvation], why am I still being persecuted [by Jews]? In that case the stumbling block of the cross [to unbelieving Jews] has been abolished.
Amplified 2015 Translator's Notes:
Literal renderings, alternate translations or explanations.
Paul's opponents in Galatia were trying to support their own arguments for circumcision by claiming that Paul was actually in favor of it. They probably knew that he had circumcised Timothy (Acts 16:3) and were taking advantage of that fact.
NASB Cross References:
But as at that time he who was born according to the flesh persecuted him
who was born
according to the Spirit, so it is now also.
just as it is written,
A STONE OF
STUMBLING AND A ROCK OF OFFENSE
ND HE WHO BELIEVES IN
WILL NOT BE
