Galatians 3

WEB 1 Foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you not to obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was openly set forth among you as crucified? NIV 1 You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified. WEB 2 I just want to learn this from you. Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by hearing of faith? NIV 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? WEB 3 Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now completed in the flesh? NIV 3 Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort? WEB 4 Did you suffer so many things in vain, if it is indeed in vain? NIV 4 Have you suffered so much for nothing--if it really was for nothing? WEB 5 He therefore that supplies the Spirit to you, and works miracles among you, does he do it by the works of the law, or by hearing of faith? NIV 5 Does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you because you observe the law, or because you believe what you heard? WEB 6 Even as Abraham "believed God, and it was counted to him for righteousness." NIV 6 Consider Abraham: "He believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness." WEB 7 Know therefore that those who are of faith, the same are sons of Abraham. NIV 7 Understand, then, that those who believe are children of Abraham. WEB 8 The Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, "In you will all the nations be blessed." NIV 8 The Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: "All nations will be blessed through you." WEB 9 So then, those who are of faith are blessed with the faithful Abraham. NIV 9 So those who have faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith. WEB 10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under a curse. For it is written, "Cursed is everyone who doesn't continue in all things that are written in the book of the law, to do them." NIV 10 All who rely on observing the law are under a curse, for it is written: "Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law." WEB 11 Now that no man is justified by the law before God is evident, for, "The righteous will live by faith." NIV 11 Clearly no one is justified before God by the law, because, "The righteous will live by faith." WEB 12 The law is not of faith, but, "The man who does them will live by them." NIV 12 The law is not based on faith; on the contrary, "The man who does these things will live by them." WEB 13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. For it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree," NIV 13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: "Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree." WEB 14 that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Christ Jesus; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. NIV 14 He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit. WEB 15 Brothers, I speak like men. Though it is only a man's covenant, yet when it has been confirmed, no one makes it void, or adds to it. NIV 15 Brothers, let me take an example from everyday life. Just as no one can set aside or add to a human covenant that has been duly established, so it is in this case. WEB 16 Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. He doesn't say, "To seeds," as of many, but as of one, "To your seed," which is Christ. NIV 16 The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. The Scripture does not say "and to seeds," meaning many people, but "and to your seed," meaning one person, who is Christ. WEB 17 Now I say this. A covenant confirmed beforehand by God in Christ, the law, which came four hundred and thirty years after, does not annul, so as to make the promise of no effect. NIV 17 What I mean is this: The law, introduced 430 years later, does not set aside the covenant previously established by God and thus do away with the promise. WEB 18 For if the inheritance is of the law, it is no more of promise; but God has granted it to Abraham by promise. NIV 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. WEB 19 What then is the law? It was added because of transgressions, until the seed should come to whom the promise has been made. It was ordained through angels by the hand of a mediator. NIV 19 What, then, was the purpose of the law? It was added because of transgressions until the Seed to whom the promise referred had come. The law was put into effect through angels by a mediator. WEB 20 Now a mediator is not between one, but God is one. NIV 20 A mediator, however, does not represent just one party; but God is one. WEB 21 Is the law then against the promises of God? Certainly not! For if there had been a law given which could make alive, most assuredly righteousness would have been of the law. NIV 21 Is the law, therefore, opposed to the promises of God? Absolutely not! For if a law had been given that could impart life, then righteousness would certainly have come by the law. WEB 22 But the Scriptures shut up all things under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe. NIV 22 But the Scripture declares that the whole world is a prisoner of sin, so that what was promised, being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe. WEB 23 But before faith came, we were kept in custody under the law, shut up to the faith which should afterwards be revealed. NIV 23 Before this faith came, we were held prisoners by the law, locked up until faith should be revealed. WEB 24 So that the law has become our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith. NIV 24 So the law was put in charge to lead us to Christ that we might be justified by faith. WEB 25 But now that faith is come, we are no longer under a tutor. NIV 25 Now that faith has come, we are no longer under the supervision of the law. WEB 26 For you are all sons of God, through faith in Christ Jesus. NIV 26 You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, WEB 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. NIV 27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. WEB 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. NIV 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. WEB 29 If you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed and heirs according to promise. NIV 29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
