2:2 I went according to a revelation and presented to them the Gospel I proclaim among the non-Judeans. Yet I only told this privately to those who were highly esteemed, in case somehow I was still, or had been, running in vain.

2:4 And this had to be done privately because of the fake believers, who were planted to spy on the freedom we have in Anointed Jesus so they could enslave us.

2:9 James, Cephas, and John— those reputed to be the “supporting pillars”— recognized the favor that was granted to me and welcomed me and Barnabas into the partnership; we were to go to the non-Judeans and they to the Judeans.

2:12 What happened was that before some people came representing James, he ate together with the non-Judeans, but when those people came he withdrew and segregated himself out of fear of “the circumcision.”

2:14 But when I saw that they had veered off the road leading to the truth of the Gospel, I said to Cephas in front of them all, “If you, a Judean, could live as the non-Judeans and not according to Judaism, how is it that now you are compelling the non-Judeans to observe Judaism?”

2:16 have understood that no one is justified on the basis of meeting the requirements of the Law, but only by trusting in Jesus the Anointed. And we put our trust in Anointed Jesus so that we may be justified by that trust and not due to performing the requirements of the Law, which the flesh cannot accomplish.
