O foolish Galatians, who
hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes
Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?
This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the
law, or by the hearing of faith?
Oh foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you? 
Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by
Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain.
He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles
among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for
Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children
And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through
faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all
nations be blessed.
So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.
Are you foolish enough to try to finish in the flesh
what you began with the spirit?
For as many as are of
the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is
every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of
the law to do them.
Those who obey the law are under the curse. 
But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is
evident: for, The just
shall live by faith.
The just live by faith. 
And the law is not of
faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.
Christ hath redeemed us
from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one
that hangeth on a tree:
That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus
Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man's
covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.
Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, 
by being made a curse for us. 
Because it is written,
Everyone who hangs on a tree is cursed.
Now to Abraham and
his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but
as of one, And to thy
seed, which is Christ.
The promises were made to Abraham and his seed.
And Abraham's seed is Christ. 
And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in
Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot
disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.
For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God
gave it to Abraham by promise.
The law was given 430 years later. 
Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions,
till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained
by angels in the hand of a mediator.
Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one.
Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had
been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should
have been by the law.
But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith
of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.
But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith
which should afterwards be revealed.
The law was given to Moses
from angels in the hand of a mediator. 
Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we
might be justified by faith.
The law was our schoolmaster.
But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
We no longer need a schoolmaster. 
For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
You are children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. 
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is
neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to
We are no longer slaves or free, male or female, 
but we are all one is Christ Jesus.
