Galatians 3:1-18

RSV 1 O 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. RSV 2 Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by 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? RSV 3 Are you so foolish? Having begun with the Spirit, are you now ending with 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? RSV 4 Did you experience so many things in vain? --if it really is in vain. NIV 4 Have you experienced so much in vain—if it really was in vain? RSV 5 Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by 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? RSV 6 Thus 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.” RSV 7 So you see that it is men of faith who are the sons of Abraham. NIV 7 Understand, then, that those who have faith are children of Abraham. RSV 8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, "In you shall all the nations be blessed." 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.” RSV 9 So then, those who are men of faith are blessed with Abraham who had faith. NIV 9 So those who rely on faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith. RSV 10 For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, "Cursed be every one who does not abide by all things written in the book of the law, and do them." 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.” RSV 11 Now it is evident that no man is justified before God by the law; for "He who through faith is righteous shall live"; NIV 11 Clearly no one who relies on the law is justified before God, because “the righteous will live by faith.” RSV 12 but the law does not rest on faith, for "He who does 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.” RSV 13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us--for it is written, "Cursed be every one 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.” RSV 14 that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles, that we might 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. RSV 15 To give a human example, brethren: no one annuls even a man's will, or adds to it, once it has been ratified. 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. RSV 16 Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say, "And to offsprings," referring to many; but, referring to one, "And to your offspring," which 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. RSV 17 This is what I mean: the law, which came four hundred and thirty years afterward, does not annul a covenant previously ratified by God, so as to make the promise void. 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. RSV 18 For if the inheritance is by the law, it is no longer by promise; but God gave it to Abraham by 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.
