Galatians 3

1 O foolish Galatians, who bewitched you, according to whose eyes Jesus Christ was set forth crucified?

2 This only I desire to learn from you: received you the Spirit out from works of law or out from hearing of faith?

3 Are you so foolish, having begun by Spirit, do you now finish by flesh?

4 You suffered so many things vainly, if indeed even vainly.

5 Therefore, the One supplying to you the Spirit and working powers in you, does He do it out from works of law or out from hearing of faith?

6 Just as Abraham believed as to God and it was reckoned to him into righteousness.

7 Then you know that the ones out from faith, these are sons of Abraham.

8 And the Scripture having foreseen that God justifies the nations out from faith, preached-before to Abraham, that in you the nations will be blessed.

9 So that, the ones out from faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.

10 For as many as are out from works of law are under a curse, for it has been written that, “Fully-cursed is everyone who does not continue with all things, the ones written in the book of the law of the result to do them.”

11 Moreover, that in law no one is justified with God is evident, because the righteous one will live out from faith.

12 But the law is not out from faith, but the one having done them will live in them.

13 Christ redeemed us out from the curse of the law, having become a curse on behalf of us, because it has been written, “Fully-cursed is everyone, the one being hung upon a tree.”

14 In order that into the nations the blessing of Abraham might come to be in Christ Jesus, in order that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through the faith.

15 Brethren, I speak according to man; although of man confirmed, a covenant no one sets aside or places-orders-upon it.

16 Moreover, to Abraham were spoken the promises and to his Seed; He does not say, and to the seeds, as upon many, but as upon One, and to your Seed, Who is Christ.

17 Moreover, this I say, a covenant, confirmed before by God, the law, which came to be after four hundred and thirty years, does not invalidate into the purpose to idle-down the promise.

18 For if the inheritance is out from law, then it is no longer out from a promise, but God has given it to Abraham through a promise.

19 Why then the law? It was added because of the transgressions, until which time the Seed might come to whom it has been promised, having been arranged through messengers in a hand of a mediator.

20 Moreover, the mediator is not one, but God is One.

21 Therefore, is the law against the promises of [[God?]] May it not come to be. For if a law was given, the one being able to make alive, then indeed, righteousness was out from law.

22 But the Scripture shut up together all things under sin, in order that the promise out from faith of Jesus Christ might be given to the ones believing.

23 But before the result of the faith to come, we were being guarded under law, being shut up together into the coming faith to be revealed.

24 So that, the law has come to be our tutor into Christ, in order that we might be justified out from faith.

25 But the faith having come, we are no longer under a tutor.

26 For you are all sons of God through the faith in Christ Jesus,

27 for as many as were baptized into Christ, you did put on Christ.

28 Not one Jew, not even a Greek, not one bondservant, not even a free one, not one male or even female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

29 And since you are of Christ, then you are of Abraham seed, heirs according to a promise.
