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.
And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached beforehand the Gospel unto Abraham, saying, "In thee shall all nations be blessed."
So then, those who are of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.
For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written: "Cursed is every one who continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them."
But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, for "the just shall live by faith."
And the law is not of faith, but "The man who doeth them shall live in them."
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us (for it is written, "Cursed is every one who hangeth on a tree"),
that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Brethren, I speak after the manner of men: A covenant, though it be but a man's covenant, yet if it is confirmed, no man annulleth or addeth thereto.
