As many as desire to make a good showing in the flesh, these would compel you to be circumcised, q only that they may not suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.

But God forbid that I should boast except in the r cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and s I to the world.
