Galatians 3


Sons of Abraham are of Belief

1O unthinking Galatians, who charmed you, [3the 4truth 1to not 2yield to], before whose eyes Jesus Christ was written about beforehand, [2among 3you 1being crucified]? 2This only I want to learn from you, was it from works of law [2the 3spirit 1you received], or by report of belief? 3[2so 3unthinking 1Are you]? Commencing in spirit, [2now 4in flesh 1you are 3completed]? 4[2so many things 1Did you suffer] in vain, if indeed that it be vain? 5The one then supplying to you the spirit, and operates power in you -- is it from works of law or is it from report of belief? 6As how Abraham trusted in God, and it was imputed to him for righteousness. 7Know then that the ones of belief, these are sons of Abraham. 8[4saw at a distance 1And 2the 3scripture] that of belief [2justifies 3the 4nations 1God], advancing good news to Abraham, saying that, [4shall be blessed 5by 6you 1All 2the 3nations]. 9So that the ones of belief are blessed with the believing Abraham. 10For as many as [2of 3works 4of law 1are], [2under 3a curse 1they are]. For it has been written, Accursed be all who do not adhere in all the things having been written in the scroll of the law to do them.

The Just shall Live of Belief

11But that by law no one is being justified with God is manifest; for it says, The just [2of 3belief 1shall live]. 12But the law is not of belief; but the [2observing 3them 1man] shall live by them. 13Christ bought us back from the curse of the law, having become [2for 3us 1a curse]. For it has been written, Accursed is every one hanging upon a tree, 14that to the nations the blessing of Abraham should take place in Christ Jesus, that the promise of the spirit we should receive through the belief. 15Brethren, according to man I speak. Even [2of a man 3having been validated 1a covenant], no one annuls or adds further. 16 And to Abraham [3were spoken 1the 2promises], and to his seed. [2he does not 3say 1And], to the seeds, as unto many; but as unto one, saying, And to your seed -- which is Christ. 17And this I say, the covenant being validated before by God in Christ -- [3after 7years 4four hundred 5and 6thirty 2taking place 1the law] does not void so as to render useless the promise. 18For if [3is of 4law 1the 2inheritance], no longer is it of promise; but to Abraham through promise God granted it.

The Purpose of the Law

19Why then the law? [3of the 4violations 2for favor 1It was added], until of which time [3should come 1the 2seed] to whom it has been promised; it was set in order by messengers in the hand of a mediator. 20But the mediator [3one 2not 1is]; but God is one. 21Then is the law against the promises of God? May it not be. For if [2was given 1a law] being able to restore life, then really [4then 5of 6law 3was 1the 2righteousness]. 22But [3consigned 1the 2scripture] the whole under sin, that the promise of belief of Jesus Christ should be given to the ones trusting. 23[2before 1But 5coming 3the 4belief], [2by 3law 1we were guarded], having been consigned to the about to be [2belief 1uncovering]. 24So that the law [2our instructor 1has become] up to Christ, that [2of 3belief 1we should be justified]. 25[4having come 1But 2of the 3belief], no longer [2under 3an instructor 1are we]; 26[3all 1for 4sons 5of God 2you are] through the belief in Christ Jesus. 27For as many as was immersed [2Christ 1put on]. 28There is not Jew nor Greek; there is not bondman nor free; there is not male and female; [4all 1for 2you 5one 3are] in Christ Jesus. 29And if you are of Christ, then [2of the 4of Abraham 3seed 1you are], and [2according to 3promise 1heirs].
