Galatians 3 :: English Standard Version (ESV)

Tools specific to Gal 3:1

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:1

O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? It was before your eyes that Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified.

Tools specific to Gal 3:2

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:2

Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by hearing with faith?

Tools specific to Gal 3:3

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:3

Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by[fn] the flesh?

Tools specific to Gal 3:4

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:4

Did you suffer[fn] so many things in vain—if indeed it was in vain?

Tools specific to Gal 3:5

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:5

Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith—

Tools specific to Gal 3:6

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:6

just as Abraham “believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”?

Tools specific to Gal 3:7

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:7

Know then that it is those of faith who are the sons of Abraham.

Tools specific to Gal 3:8

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:8

And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify[fn] the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, “In you shall all the nations be blessed.”

Tools specific to Gal 3:9

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:9

So then, those who are of faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.

Tools specific to Gal 3:10

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:10

For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them.”

Tools specific to Gal 3:11

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:11

Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for “The righteous shall live by faith.”[fn]

Tools specific to Gal 3:12

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:12

But the law is not of faith, rather “The one who does them shall live by them.”

Tools specific to Gal 3:13

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:13

Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”—

Tools specific to Gal 3:14

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:14

so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit[fn] through faith.

Tools specific to Gal 3:15

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:15

To give a human example, brothers:[fn] even with a man-made covenant, no one annuls it or adds to it once it has been ratified.

Tools specific to Gal 3:16

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:16

Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say, “And to offsprings,” referring to many, but referring to one, “And to your offspring,” who is Christ.

Tools specific to Gal 3:17

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:17

This is what I mean: the law, which came 430 years afterward, does not annul a covenant previously ratified by God, so as to make the promise void.

Tools specific to Gal 3:18

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:18

For if the inheritance comes by the law, it no longer comes by promise; but God gave it to Abraham by a promise.

Tools specific to Gal 3:19

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:19

Why then the law? It was added because of transgressions, until the offspring should come to whom the promise had been made, and it was put in place through angels by an intermediary.

Tools specific to Gal 3:20

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:20

Now an intermediary implies more than one, but God is one.

Tools specific to Gal 3:21

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:21

Is the law then contrary to the promises of God? Certainly not! For if a law had been given that could give life, then righteousness would indeed be by the law.

Tools specific to Gal 3:22

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:22

But the Scripture imprisoned everything under sin, so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.

Tools specific to Gal 3:23

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:23

Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed.

Tools specific to Gal 3:24

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:24

So then, the law was our guardian until Christ came, in order that we might be justified by faith.

Tools specific to Gal 3:25

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:25

But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian,

Tools specific to Gal 3:26

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:26

for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith.

Tools specific to Gal 3:27

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:27

For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

Tools specific to Gal 3:28

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:28

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave[fn] nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Tools specific to Gal 3:29

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:29

And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise.
