O foolish Galatians! Who hath bewitched you, that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been clearly set forth, crucified among you?
This only would I learn of you: Did ye receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
Are ye so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?
Have ye suffered so many things in vain -- if it be yet in vain?
He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit and worketh miracles among you, doeth He it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
Even as Abraham "believed God, and it was accounted to him as righteousness."
Know ye therefore that those who are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.
