Faith Brings Righteousness1 ▼
▼ Lit OYou foolish b Galatians, who has bewitched you, before whose eyes Jesus Christ c was publicly portrayed as crucified? 2 This is the only thing I want to find out from you: did you receive the Spirit by the works of ▼ the Law, or by ▼
▼ Lit the hearing of faith, f hearing with faith? 3 Are you so foolish? Having begun ▼
▼ Or withby the Spirit, are you now ▼
▼ Or ending withbeing perfected by the flesh? 4 Did you ▼
▼ Or experiencesuffer so many things in vain— j if indeed it was in vain? 5 So then, does He who k provides you with the Spirit and l works ▼
▼ Or works of powermiracles among you, do it by the works of ▼ the Law, or by ▼
▼ Lit the hearing of faith, p hearing with faith? 6 ▼
▼ Lit Just asEven so r Abraham s believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness. 7 Therefore ▼
▼ Lit knowbe sure that u it is those who are of faith who are v sons of Abraham. 8 The Scripture, foreseeing that God ▼
▼ Lit justifieswould justify the ▼
▼ Lit nationsGentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying y “All the nations will be blessed in you.” 9 So then z those who are of faith are blessed with ▼
▼ Lit the believing AbrahamAbraham, the believer. 10 For as many as are of the works of ▼ the Law are under a curse; for it is written ac “Cursed is everyone who does not abide by all things written in the book of the law, to perform them.” 11 Now that ad no one is justified ▼
▼ Or inby ▼ the Law before God is evident; for, ▼
▼ Or But he who is righteous by faith shall live, ah “The righteous man shall live by faith.” 12 ▼
▼ Or AndHowever, the Law is not ▼
▼ Or based onof faith; on the contrary ak “He who practices them shall live ▼
▼ Or inby them.” 13 Christ am redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us— for it is written an “Cursed is everyone who hangs on ao a ▼
▼ Or cross; lit woodtree”— 14 in order that aq in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might ▼
▼ Or occurcome to the Gentiles, so that we as would receive at the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Intent of the Law15 au Brethren av I speak ▼
▼ Lit according to manin terms of human relations: ax even though it is only a man’s ▼
▼ Or will or testamentcovenant, yet when it has been ratified, no one sets it aside or adds ▼
▼ Or a codicilconditions to it. 16 Now the promises were spoken ba to Abraham and to his seed. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as referring to many, but rather to one bb “And to your seed,” that is, Christ. 17 What I am saying is this: the Law, which came bc four hundred and thirty years later, does not invalidate a covenant previously ratified by God, so as to nullify the promise. 18 For bd if the inheritance is ▼ based on law, it is no longer ▼ based on a promise; but bg God has granted it to Abraham by means of a promise. 19 bh Why the Law then? It was added ▼
▼ Or for the sake of definingbecause of transgressions, having been bj ordained through angels bk by the ▼
▼ Lit handagency of a mediator, until bm the seed would come to whom the promise had been made. 20 Now bn a mediator is not ▼
▼ Lit of onefor one party only; whereas God is only one. 21 Is the Law then contrary to the promises of God? bp May it never be! For bq if a law had been given which was able to impart life, then righteousness ▼
▼ Or would indeed bewould indeed have been ▼ based on law. 22 But the Scripture has bt shut up ▼
▼ Lit thingseveryone under sin, so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe. 23 But before faith came, we were kept in custody under the law bv being shut up to the faith which was later to be revealed. 24 Therefore the Law has become our bw tutor to lead us to Christ, so that bx we may be justified by faith. 25 But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a ▼
▼ Lit child-conductor, bz tutor. 26 For you are all ca sons of God through faith in cb Christ Jesus. 27 For all of you who were cc baptized into Christ have cd clothed yourselves with Christ. 28 ce There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is ▼
▼ Lit not male and femaleneither male nor female; for cg you are all one in ch Christ Jesus. 29 And if ci you ▼
▼ Lit are Christ’sbelong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s ▼
▼ Lit seeddescendants, heirs according to cl promise.
