Galatians 3:6-16 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
6 aEven so 1Abraham 2BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS RECKONED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS. 7 Therefore, bbe sure that 3it is those who are of faith who are 4sons of Abraham. 8 The Scripture, foreseeing that God cwould justify the dGentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, "5ALL THE NATIONS WILL BE BLESSED IN YOU. 9 So then 6those who are of faith are blessed with eAbraham, the believer. 10 For as many as are of the works of fthe Law are under a curse ; for it is written, "7CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO DOES NOT ABIDE BY ALL THINGS WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF THE LAW, TO PERFORM 11 Now that 8no one is justified gby hthe Law before God is evident ; for, "i9THE RIGHTEOUS MAN SHALL LIVE BY FAITH." 12 jHowever, the Law is not kof faith ; on the contrary, "10HE WHO PRACTICES THEM SHALL LIVE lBY THEM." 13 Christ 11redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us-for it is written, "12CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO HANGS ON 13A mTREE "- 14 in order that 14in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might ncome to the Gentiles, so that we 15would receive 16the promise of the Spirit through faith.

Intent of the Law

15 17Brethren, 18I speak oin terms of human relations : 19even though it is only a man's pcovenant, yet when it has been ratified, no one sets it aside or adds qconditions to it. 16 Now the promises were spoken 20to Abraham and to his seed. He does not say, "And to seeds," as referring to many, but rather to one, "21And to your seed," that is, Christ.
