Galatians 3 :: New English Translation (NET)

toggle collapse

Tools specific to Gal 3:1

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:1

You foolish Galatians! Who has cast a spell on you? Before your eyes Jesus Christ was vividly portrayed as crucified!

Tools specific to Gal 3:2

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:2

The only thing I want to learn from you is this: Did you receive the Spirit by doing the works of the law or by believing what you heard?

Tools specific to Gal 3:3

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:3

Are you so foolish? Although you began with the Spirit, are you now trying to finish by human effort?

Tools specific to Gal 3:4

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:4

Have you suffered so many things for nothing? - if indeed it was for nothing.

Tools specific to Gal 3:5

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:5

Does God then give you the Spirit and work miracles among you by your doing the works of the law or by your believing what you heard?

Tools specific to Gal 3:6

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:6

Just as Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,

Tools specific to Gal 3:7

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:7

so then, understand that those who believe 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 the Gentiles by faith, proclaimed the gospel to Abraham ahead of time, saying, "All the nations will be blessed in you."

Tools specific to Gal 3:9

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:9

So then those who believe are blessed along with Abraham the believer.

Tools specific to Gal 3:10

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:10

For all who rely on doing the works of the law are under a curse, because it is written, "Cursed is everyone who does not keep on doing everything written in the book of the law."

Tools specific to Gal 3:11

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:11

Now it is clear no one is justified before God by the law, because the righteous one will live by faith.

Tools specific to Gal 3:12

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:12

But the law is not based on faith, but the one who does the works of the law will 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 (because it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree")

Tools specific to Gal 3:14

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:14

in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham would come to the Gentiles, so that we could receive the promise of the Spirit by faith.

Tools specific to Gal 3:15

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:15

Brothers and sisters, I offer an example from everyday life: When a covenant has been ratified, even though it is only a human contract, no one can set it aside or add anything to it.

Tools specific to Gal 3:16

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:16

Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his descendant. Scripture does not say, "and to the descendants," referring to many, but "and to your descendant," referring to one, who is Christ.

Tools specific to Gal 3:17

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:17

What I am saying is this: The law that came four hundred thirty years later does not cancel a covenant previously ratified by God, so as to invalidate the promise.

Tools specific to Gal 3:18

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:18

For if the inheritance is based on the law, it is no longer based on the promise, but God graciously gave it to Abraham through the promise.

Tools specific to Gal 3:19

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:19

Why then was the law given? It was added because of transgressions, until the arrival of the descendant to whom the promise had been made. It was administered through angels by an intermediary.

Tools specific to Gal 3:20

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:20

Now an intermediary is not for one party alone, but God is one.

Tools specific to Gal 3:21

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:21

Is the law therefore opposed to the promises of God? Absolutely not! For if a law had been given that was able to give life, then righteousness would certainly have come by the law.

Tools specific to Gal 3:22

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:22

But the scripture imprisoned everything and everyone under sin so that the promise could be given - because of the faithfulness of Jesus Christ - to those who believe.

Tools specific to Gal 3:23

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:23

Now before faith came we were held in custody under the law, being kept as prisoners until the coming faith would be revealed.

Tools specific to Gal 3:24

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:24

Thus the law had become our guardian until Christ, so that we could be declared righteous 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 all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.

Tools specific to Gal 3:28

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:28

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female - for all of you are one in Christ Jesus.

Tools specific to Gal 3:29

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 3:29

And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's descendants, heirs according to the promise.
