1 O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? z It was before your eyes that Jesus Christ was publicly a portrayed as crucified. 2 Let me ask you only this: b Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by c hearing with faith? 3 Are you so foolish? d Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by 1 the flesh? 4 e Did you suffer 2 so many things in vain - if indeed it was in vain? 5 Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and f works miracles among you do so g by works of the law, or by hearing with faith - 6 just as h Abraham "believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness"?
7 Know then that it is i those of faith who are j the sons of Abraham. 8 And the Scripture, foreseeing that k God would justify 3 the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, l "In you shall all the nations be blessed." 9 So then, those who are of faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.English Standard Version (ESV) The Holy Bible, English Standard Version Copyright © 2001 by Crossway Bibles, a division of Good News Publishers.
