TOLMIE, D.F.. The interpretation and translation of Galatians 5:12. Acta theol. [online]. 2009, vol.29, n.2, pp. 86-102. ISSN 1015-8758.

As is evident from commentaries on Galatians and from various English translations, scholars do not agree on the meaning, rhetorical labelling and translation of the wish expressed by Paul in Galatians 5:12 (). In this article various interpretations of this verse are considered; its rhetorical labelling is discussed; and suggestions are made as to the best way in which it may be translated into English.

Keywords : The Letter to the Galatians; Galatians 5:12; Interpretation; Translation; Sarcasm.
