2 I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by believing what you heard?

Read Galatians 3:2 Using Other Translations

This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by hearing with faith?
Let me ask you this one question: Did you receive the Holy Spirit by obeying the law of Moses? Of course not! You received the Spirit because you believed the message you heard about Christ.
