New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
1 You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? It was before your eyes that Jesus Christ was publicly exhibited as crucified! 1 You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified.
2 The only thing I want to learn from you is this: Did you receive the Spirit by doing the works of the law or by believing what you heard? 2 I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by observing the law, or by believing what you heard?
3 Are you so foolish? Having started with the Spirit, are you now ending with the flesh? 3 Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort?
4 Did you experience so much for nothing?—if it really was for nothing. 4 Have you suffered so much for nothing--if it really was for nothing?
5 Well then, does God supply you with the Spirit and work miracles among you by your doing the works of the law, or by your believing what you heard? 5 Does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you because you observe the law, or because you believe what you heard?
