Galatians 3:18

The inheritance (h klhronomia). Old word from klhronomo, heir (klero, lot, nemomai, to distribute). See on "Mt 21:38"; see also "Ac 7:5". This came to Israel by the promise to Abraham, not by the Mosaic law. So with us, Paul argues. Hath granted (kecaristai). Perfect middle indicative of carizomai. It still holds good after the law came.
