Galatians 3:1-14

By Faith, or by Works of the Law?

1 O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? 1It was before your eyes that Jesus Christ was publicly 2portrayed as crucified.
2 Let me ask you only this: 3Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by 4hearing with faith?
3 Are you so foolish? 5Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected bya the flesh?
4 6Did you sufferb so many things in vain--if indeed it was in vain?
5 Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and 7works miracles among you do so 8by works of the law, or by hearing with faith--
6 just as 9Abraham "believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness"?
7 Know then that it is 10those of faith who are 11the sons of Abraham.
8 And the Scripture, foreseeing that 12God would justifyc the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, 13"In you shall all the nations be blessed."
9 So then, those who are of faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.

The Righteous Shall Live by Faith

10 For all who rely on works of the law are 14under a curse; for it is written, 15"Cursed be everyone who does not 16abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them."
11 Now it is evident that 17no one is justified before God by the law, for 18"The righteous shall live by faith."d
12 But the law is not of faith, rather 19"The one who does them shall live by them."
13 Christ 20redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us--for it is written, 21"Cursed is everyone who is hanged 22on a tree"--
14 so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might 23come to the Gentiles, so that 24we might receive 25the promised Spirite through faith.
