Revised Standard Version w/ Apocrypha (RSVA) New International Version (NIV)
1 O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified? 1 You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified.
2 Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law, or by hearing with faith? 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 begun 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 many things in vain? --if it really is in vain. 4 Have you suffered so much for nothing--if it really was for nothing?
5 Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith? 5 Does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you because you observe the law, or because you believe what you heard?
