Galatians 3:1-14

Faith Brings Righteousness

2 This is the only thing I want to find out from you: did you receive the Spirit by the works of the Law, or by 3hearing with faith?
3 Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?
4 Did you suffer so many things in vain -4if indeed * it was in vain?
5 So then, does He who 5provides you with the Spirit and 6works miracles among you, do it by the works of the Law, or by 7hearing with faith?
6 Even so 8Abraham 9BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS RECKONED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS.
7 Therefore, be sure that 10it is those who are of faith who are 11sons of Abraham.
8 The Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, "12ALL THE NATIONS WILL BE BLESSED IN YOU.
9 So then 13those who are of faith are blessed with Abraham, the believer.
10 For as many as are of the works of the Law are under a curse; for it is written, "14CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO DOES NOT ABIDE BY ALL THINGS WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF THE LAW, TO PERFORM
11 Now that 15no one is justified by the Law before God is evident; for, "16THE RIGHTEOUS MAN SHALL LIVE BY FAITH."
12 However, the Law is not of faith; on the contrary, "17HE WHO PRACTICES THEM SHALL LIVE BY THEM."
13 Christ 18redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us-for it is written, "19CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO HANGS ON 20A TREE "-
14 in order that 21in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we 22would receive 23the promise of the Spirit through faith.
