|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
18 No, this addendum, with its instructions and regulations, has nothing to do with the promised inheritance in the will.
18 For if the inheritance depends on the law, then it no longer depends on a promise; but God in his grace gave it to Abraham through a promise.
