Galatians 3

NAS 1 You foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified? NIV 1 You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified. NAS 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 hearing with faith? NIV 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? NAS 3 Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh? NIV 3 Are you so foolish? After beginning by means of the Spirit, are you now trying to finish by means of the flesh? NAS 4 Did you suffer so many things in vain -if indeed it was in vain? NIV 4 Have you experienced so much in vain—if it really was in vain? NAS 5 So then, does He who provides you with the Spirit and works miracles among you, do it by the works of the Law, or by hearing with faith? NIV 5 So again I ask, does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you by the works of the law, or by your believing what you heard? NAS 6 Even so Abraham BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS RECKONED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS. NIV 6 So also Abraham “believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” NAS 7 Therefore, be sure that it is those who are of faith who are sons of Abraham. NIV 7 Understand, then, that those who have faith are children of Abraham. NAS 8 The Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, "ALL THE NATIONS WILL BE BLESSED IN YOU. NIV 8 Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: “All nations will be blessed through you.” NAS 9 So then those who are of faith are blessed with Abraham, the believer. NIV 9 So those who rely on faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith. NAS 10 For as many as are of the works of the Law are under a curse; for it is written, "CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO DOES NOT ABIDE BY ALL THINGS WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF THE LAW, TO PERFORM NIV 10 For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.” NAS 11 Now that no one is justified by the Law before God is evident; for, "THE RIGHTEOUS MAN SHALL LIVE BY FAITH." NIV 11 Clearly no one who relies on the law is justified before God, because “the righteous will live by faith.” NAS 12 However, the Law is not of faith; on the contrary, "HE WHO PRACTICES THEM SHALL LIVE BY THEM." NIV 12 The law is not based on faith; on the contrary, it says, “The person who does these things will live by them.” NAS 13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us-for it is written, "CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO HANGS ON A TREE "- NIV 13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.” NAS 14 in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we would receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. NIV 14 He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit. NAS 15 Brethren, I speak in terms of human relations: even though it is only a man's covenant, yet when it has been ratified, no one sets it aside or adds conditions to it. NIV 15 Brothers and sisters, let me take an example from everyday life. Just as no one can set aside or add to a human covenant that has been duly established, so it is in this case. NAS 16 Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. He does not say, "And to seeds," as referring to many, but rather to one, "And to your seed," that is, Christ. NIV 16 The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. Scripture does not say “and to seeds,” meaning many people, but “and to your seed,” meaning one person, who is Christ. NAS 17 What I am saying is this: the Law, which came four hundred and thirty years later, does not invalidate a covenant previously ratified by God, so as to nullify the promise. NIV 17 What I mean is this: The law, introduced 430 years later, does not set aside the covenant previously established by God and thus do away with the promise. NAS 18 For if the inheritance is based on law, it is no longer based on a promise; but God has granted it to Abraham by means of a promise. NIV 18 For if the inheritance depends on the law, then it no longer depends on the promise; but God in his grace gave it to Abraham through a promise. NAS 19 Why the Law then? It was added because of transgressions, having been ordained through angels by the agency of a mediator, until the seed would come to whom the promise had been made. NIV 19 Why, then, was the law given at all? It was added because of transgressions until the Seed to whom the promise referred had come. The law was given through angels and entrusted to a mediator. NAS 20 Now a mediator is not for one party only; whereas God is only one. NIV 20 A mediator, however, implies more than one party; but God is one. NAS 21 Is the Law then contrary to the promises of God? May it never be! For if a law had been given which was able to impart life, then righteousness would indeed have been based on law. NIV 21 Is the law, therefore, opposed to the promises of God? Absolutely not! For if a law had been given that could impart life, then righteousness would certainly have come by the law. NAS 22 But the Scripture has shut up everyone under sin, so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe. NIV 22 But Scripture has locked up everything under the control of sin, so that what was promised, being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe. NAS 23 But before faith came, we were kept in custody under the law, being shut up to the faith which was later to be revealed. NIV 23 Before the coming of this faith, we were held in custody under the law, locked up until the faith that was to come would be revealed. NAS 24 Therefore the Law has become our tutor to lead us to Christ, so that we may be justified by faith. NIV 24 So the law was our guardian until Christ came that we might be justified by faith. NAS 25 But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor. NIV 25 Now that this faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian. NAS 26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. NIV 26 So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, NAS 27 For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. NIV 27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. NAS 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. NIV 28 There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. NAS 29 And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's descendants, heirs according to promise. NIV 29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
