Galatians 3:1-9 NAS
You foolish Galatians,
who has bewitched you, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was publicly
portrayed as crucified? 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? Are you so foolish? Having begun by the
Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh? Did you suffer so
many things in vain -- if indeed it was in vain? 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?
so Abraham BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS RECKONED TO HIM AS
RIGHTEOUSNESS. Therefore, be sure that it is those who are of faith
who are sons of Abraham. 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." So then those who are of
the faith are blessed with Abraham, the believer.
