O foolish Galatians, awho hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, bbefore whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?
2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye cthe Spirit by the works of the law, dor by the hearing of faith?
3 Are ye so foolish? ehaving begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by fthe flesh?
4 gHave ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain.
5 He therefore hthat ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
6 Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.
7 Know ye therefore that ithey which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. 8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, jIn thee shall all nations be blessed. 9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham. 10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, kCursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. 11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, lThe just shall live by faith. 12 And mthe law is not of faith: but, nThe man that doeth them shall live in them. 13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, oCursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: 14 pThat the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive qthe promise of the Spirit through faith.
15 Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; rThough it be but a man's covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto. 16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is sChrist. 17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, twhich was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, uthat it should make the promise of none effect. 18 For if vthe inheritance be of the law, wit is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise. 19 Wherefore then serveth the law? xIt was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was yordained by angels in the hand zof a mediator. 20 Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, abut God is one. 21 Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law. 22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.
23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. 24 Wherefore cthe law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, bthat we might be justified by faith. 25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. 26 For ye dare all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 eThere is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all fone in Christ Jesus. 29 And gif ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and hheirs according to the promise.
