Even asAbrahambelievedGod,and it was accounteda to himforrighteousness.7
Know yethereforethat they which are offaith, the sameare the children of Abraham.8And the scripture,foreseeingthatGod would justify the heathenthroughfaith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham,saying,Intheeshallallnations be blessed .
So then they which be offaith are blessedwithfaithfulAbraham.10For as many asareof the works of the lawareunder the curse:for it is written , Cursed is every onethatcontinuethnotin all thingswhich are writtenin the book of the law to dothem.11Butthat no man is justifiedby the law in the sight of God, it is evident:for, The just shall livebyfaith.12And the lawisnotoffaith:but, The man that doeththem shall liveinthem.13Christ hath redeemedusfrom the curse of the law, being made a curseforus:for it is written , Cursed is every one that hangethon a tree:14That the blessing of Abraham might comeon the GentilesthroughJesusChrist;that we might receive the promise of the Spiritthroughfaith.15Brethren, I speak after the manner ofmen; Though it be but a man'scovenant,b yet if it be confirmed , no mandisannulleth , or addeth thereto .
16Now to Abrahamandhisseedwere the promisesmade . He saithnot,And to seeds,asofmany;butasofone,And to thyseed,whichisChrist.
