|Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. |
|Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. |
|Bear one another's burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ. |
Christians are continually (present tense) to bear one another's burdens. Bear has the thought of carrying with endurance, and burdens is from baros, which refers to heavy loads that are difficult to lift and carry. Used metaphorically, as here, it represents any difficulty or problem a person has trouble coping with.
