How does it stack up to other translations?

I’m only going to list the more interesting revisions.

Galatians 2:18
(ESV) “For if I rebuild what I tore down, I prove myself to be a transgressor.”
(TNIV) “If I rebuild what I destroyed, then I really would be a lawbreaker.”
(NLTse) “Rather, I am a sinner if I rebuild the old system of law I already tore down.”

Galatians 2:20
(ESV) “…And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
(TNIV) “…The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
(NLTse) “…So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
