One possibility is that while the basic meaning of PEIRAZO is 'to test' or
'to be tested' the context may also imply the type of testing like 'to be
tested by temptation' or 'to be tested by persecution' in a religious
context. As the idea of test also implies a possibility to pass or to fail
the test I would interpret Gal 6:1b as 'But be careful, or you may also be
tested by temptation and fail in that test.'
