Galatians Chapter 3
1 O foolish Galatianswho hath bewitched youthat ye shouldnot obey the truthbefore whose eyes Jesus Christ hath beenevidently set forthcrucified among you
2 This only would I learn of youReceived ye the Spirit by theworks of the lawor by the hearing of faith
3 Are ye so foolishhaving begun in the Spiritare ye now madeperfect by the flesh
4 Have ye suffered so many things in vainif it be yet in vain.
5 He therefore that ministereth to you the Spiritand workethmiracles among youdoeth he it by the works of the lawor bythe hearing of faith
6 Even as Abraham believed Godand it was accounted to him forrighteousness.
7 Know ye therefore that they which are of faiththe same arethe children of Abraham.
8 And the scriptureforeseeing that God would justify theheathen through faithpreached before the gospel untoAbrahamsayingIn thee shall all nations be blessed.
9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithfulAbraham.
10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under thecursefor it is writtenCursed is every one that continuethnot in all things which are written in the book of the law todo them.
11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of Godit is evidentforThe just shall live by faith.
12 And the law is not of faithbutThe man that doeth themshall live in them.
13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the lawbeing madea curse for usfor it is writtenCursed is every one thathangeth on a tree
14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentilesthrough Jesus Christthat we might receive the promise of theSpirit through faith.
15 BrethrenI speak after the manner of menThough it be but aman s covenantyet if it be confirmedno man disannullethor addeth thereto.
16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saithnotAnd to seedsas of manybut as of oneAnd to thy seedwhich is Christ.
17 And this I saythat the covenantthat was confirmed beforeof God in Christthe lawwhich was four hundred and thirtyyears aftercannot disannulthat it should make the promiseof none effect.
18 For if the inheritance be of the lawit is no more ofpromisebut God gave it to Abraham by promise.
19 Wherefore then serveth the lawIt was added because oftransgressionstill the seed should come to whom the promisewas madeand it was ordained by angels in the hand of amediator.
20 Now a mediator is not a mediator of onebut God is one.
21 Is the law then against the promises of GodGod forbidforif there had been a law given which could have given lifeverily righteousness should have been by the law.
22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sinthat thepromise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them thatbelieve.
23 But before faith camewe were kept under the lawshut upunto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.
24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us untoChristthat we might be justified by faith.
25 But after that faith is comewe are no longer under aschoolmaster.
26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have puton Christ.
28 There is neither Jew nor Greekthere is neither bond norfreethere is neither male nor femalefor ye are all one inChrist Jesus.
29 And if ye be Christ sthen are ye Abraham s seedand heirsaccording to the promise.
