Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:1 - O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth,[fn] before whose eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed among you[fn] as crucified?

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:2 - This only I want to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:3 - Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh?

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:4 - Have you suffered so many things in vain—if indeed it was in vain?

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:5 - Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?—

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:6 - just as Abraham “believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.”[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:7 - Therefore know that only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:8 - And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand, saying, “In you all the nations shall be blessed.”[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:9 - So then those who are of faith are blessed with believing Abraham.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:10 - For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them.”[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:11 - But that no one is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, for “the just shall live by faith.”[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:12 - Yet the law is not of faith, but “the man who does them shall live by them.”[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:13 - Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”[fn]),

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:14 - that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:15 - Brethren, I speak in the manner of men: Though it is only a man’s covenant, yet if it is confirmed, no one annuls or adds to it.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:16 - Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,”[fn] who is Christ.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:17 - And this I say, that the law, which was four hundred and thirty years later, cannot annul the covenant that was confirmed before by God in Christ,[fn] that it should make the promise of no effect.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:18 - For if the inheritance is of the law, it is no longer of promise; but God gave it to Abraham by promise.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:19 - What purpose then does the law serve? It was added because of transgressions, till the Seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was appointed through angels by the hand of a mediator.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:20 - Now a mediator does not mediate for one only, but God is one.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:21 - Is the law then against the promises of God? Certainly not! For if there had been a law given which could have given life, truly righteousness would have been by the law.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:22 - But the Scripture has confined all under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:23 - But before faith came, we were kept under guard by the law, kept for the faith which would afterward be revealed.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:24 - Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:25 - But after faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:26 - For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:27 - For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:28 - There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 3:29 - And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
