Galatians 3 (WEBP)
 Foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you not to obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was openly portrayed among you as crucified?
 I just want to learn this from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by hearing of faith?
 Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now completed in the flesh?
 Did you suffer so many things in vain, if it is indeed in vain?
 He therefore who supplies the Spirit to you and does miracles among you, does he do it by the works of the law, or by hearing of faith?
 Even so, Abraham “believed God, and it was counted to him for righteousness.”†
 Know therefore that those who are of faith are children of Abraham.
 The Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the Good News beforehand to Abraham, saying, “In you all the nations will be blessed.”†
 So then, those who are of faith are blessed with the faithful Abraham.
 For as many as are of the works of the law are under a curse. For it is written, “Cursed is everyone who doesn’t continue in all things that are written in the book of the law, to do them.”†
 Now that no man is justified by the law before God is evident, for, “The righteous will live by faith.”†
 The law is not of faith, but, “The man who does them will live by them.”†
 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. For it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree,”†
 that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
 Brothers, speaking of human terms, though it is only a man’s covenant, yet when it has been confirmed, no one makes it void or adds to it.
 Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his offspring.§ He doesn’t say, “To descendants§”, as of many, but as of one, “To your offspring”,† which is Christ.
 Now I say this: A covenant confirmed beforehand by God in Christ, the law, which came four hundred thirty years after, does not annul, so as to make the promise of no effect.
 For if the inheritance is of the law, it is no more of promise; but God has granted it to Abraham by promise.
 Then why is there the law? It was added because of transgressions, until the offspring should come to whom the promise has been made. It was ordained through angels by the hand of a mediator.
 Now a mediator is not between one, but God is one.
 Is the law then against the promises of God? Certainly not! For if there had been a law given which could make alive, most certainly righteousness would have been of the law.
 But the Scripture imprisoned all things under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.
 But before faith came, we were kept in custody under the law, confined for the faith which should afterwards be revealed.
 So that the law has become our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
 But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor.
 For you are all children of God, through faith in Christ Jesus.
 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
 If you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring and heirs according to promise.

Galatians 3 (KJVS)
 O G5599 foolish G453 Galatians G1052, who G5101 hath bewitched G940 (AorActInd) you G5209, that ye should G3982 not G3361 obey G3982 (PresPasInf) the truth G225, before G2596 whose G3739 eyes G3788 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547 hath been evidently set forth G4270 (Aor2PasDepSubj), crucified G4717 (PerfPasPtc) among G1722 you G5213?
 This G5124 only G3440 would G2309 (PresActInd) I learn G3129 (Aor2ActInf) of G575 you G5216, Received ye G2983 (Aor2ActInd) the Spirit G4151 by G1537 the works G2041 of the law G3551, or G2228 by G1537 the hearing G189 of faith G4102?
 Are ye G2075 (PresInd) so G3779 foolish G453? having begun G1728 (AorMidDepPtc) in the Spirit G4151, are ye G2005 now G3568 made perfect G2005 (PresMidPasInd) by the flesh G4561?
 Have ye suffered G3958 (Aor2ActInd) so many things G5118 in vain G1500? if [it be] yet G1489 G2532 in vain G1500.
 He therefore G3767 that ministereth G2023 (PresActPtc) to you G5213 the Spirit G4151, and G2532 worketh G1754 (PresActPtc) miracles G1411 among G1722 you G5213, [doeth he it] by G1537 the works G2041 of the law G3551, or G2228 by G1537 the hearing G189 of faith G4102?
 Even as G2531 Abraham G11 believed G4100 (AorActInd) God G2316, and G2532 it was accounted G3049 (AorPasInd) to him G846 for G1519 righteousness G1343.
 Know ye G1097 (PresActInd) (PresActImpr) therefore G686 that G3754 they which are of G1537 faith G4102, the same G3778 are G1526 (PresInd) the children G5207 of Abraham G11.
 And G1161 the scripture G1124, foreseeing G4275 (Aor2ActPtc) that G3754 God G2316 would justify G1344 (PresActInd) the heathen G1484 through G1537 faith G4102, preached before the gospel G4283 (AorMidDepInd) unto Abraham G11, [saying], G3754 In G1722 thee G4671 shall G1757 all G3956 nations G1484 be blessed G1757 (FutPasInd).
 So then G5620 they which be of G1537 faith G4102 are blessed G2127 (PresPasInd) with G4862 faithful G4103 Abraham G11.
 For G1063 as many as G3745 are G1526 (PresInd) of G1537 the works G2041 of the law G3551 are G1526 (PresInd) under G5259 the curse G2671: for G1063 it is written G1125 (PerfPasInd), Cursed G1944 [is] every one G3956 that G3739 continueth G1696 (PresActInd) not G3756 in G1722 all things G3956 which G3588 are written G1125 (PerfPasPtc) in G1722 the book G975 of the law G3551 to do G4160 (AorActInf) them G846.
 But G1161 that G3754 no man G3762 is justified G1344 (PresPasInd) by G1722 the law G3551 in the sight G3844 of God G2316, [it is] evident G1212: for G3754, The just G1342 shall live G2198 (FutMidDepInd) by G1537 faith G4102.
 And G1161 the law G3551 is G2076 (PresInd) not G3756 of G1537 faith G4102: but G235, The man G444 that doeth G4160 (AorActPtc) them G846 shall live G2198 (FutMidDepInd) in G1722 them G846.
 Christ G5547 hath redeemed G1805 (AorActInd) us G2248 from G1537 the curse G2671 of the law G3551, being made G1096 (Aor2MidDepPtc) a curse G2671 for G5228 us G2257: for G1063 it is written G1125 (PerfPasInd), Cursed G1944 [is] every one G3956 that hangeth G2910 (PresMidPtc) on G1909 a tree G3586:
 That G2443 the blessing G2129 of Abraham G11 might come G1096 (Aor2MidDepSubj) on G1519 the Gentiles G1484 through G1722 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547; that G2443 we might receive G2983 (Aor2ActSubj) the promise G1860 of the Spirit G4151 through G1223 faith G4102.
 Brethren G80, I speak G3004 (PresActInd) after the manner of G2596 men G444; Though [it be] but G3676 a man’s G444 covenant G1242, yet [if it be] confirmed G2964 (PerfPasPtc), no man G3762 disannulleth G114 (PresActInd), or G2228 addeth thereto G1928 (PresMidPasDepInd).
 Now G1161 to Abraham G11 and G2532 his G846 seed G4690 were G4483 the promises G1860 made G4483 (AorPasInd). He saith G3004 (PresActInd) not G3756, And G2532 to seeds G4690, as G5613 of G1909 many G4183; but G235 as G5613 of G1909 one G1520, And G2532 to thy G4675 seed G4690, which G3739 is G2076 (PresInd) Christ G5547.
 And G1161 this G5124 I say G3004 (PresActInd), [that] the covenant G1242, that was confirmed before G4300 (PerfPasPtc) of G5259 God G2316 in G1519 Christ G5547, the law G3551, which was G1096 (Perf2ActPtc) four hundred G5071 and G2532 thirty G5144 years G2094 after G3326, cannot G3756 disannul G208 (PresActInd), that G1519 it should make G2673 the promise G1860 of none effect G2673 (AorActInf).
 For G1063 if G1487 the inheritance G2817 [be] of G1537 the law G3551, [it is] no more G3765 of G1537 promise G1860: but G1161 God G2316 gave G5483 (PerfMidPasDepInd) [it] to Abraham G11 by G1223 promise G1860.
 Wherefore G5101 then G3767 [serveth] the law G3551? It was added G4369 (AorPasInd) because of G5484 transgressions G3847, till G891 G3739 the seed G4690 should come G2064 (Aor2ActSubj) to whom G3739 the promise was made G1861 (PerfMidPasDepInd); [and it was] ordained G1299 (Aor2PasPtc) by G1223 angels G32 in G1722 the hand G5495 of a mediator G3316.
 Now G1161 a mediator G3316 is G2076 (PresInd) not G3756 [a mediator] of one G1520, but G1161 God G2316 is G2076 (PresInd) one G1520.
 [Is] the law G3551 then G3767 against G2596 the promises G1860 of God G2316? God forbid G3361 G1096 (Aor2MidDepOpt): for G1063 if G1487 there had been G1325 a law G3551 given G1325 (AorPasInd) which G3588 could G1410 (PresMidPasDepPtc) have given life G2227 (AorActInf), verily G3689 righteousness G1343 should G302 have been G2258 (ImpfInd) by G1537 the law G3551.
 But G235 the scripture G1124 hath concluded G4788 (AorActInd) all G3956 under G5259 sin G266, that G2443 the promise G1860 by G1537 faith G4102 of Jesus G2424 Christ G5547 might be given G1325 (AorPasSubj) to them that believe G4100 (PresActPtc).
 But G1161 before G4253 faith G4102 came G2064 (Aor2ActInf), we were kept G5432 (ImpfPasInd) under G5259 the law G3551, shut up G4788 (PerfPasPtc) unto G1519 the faith G4102 which should afterwards G3195 (PresActPtc) be revealed G601 (AorPasInf).
 Wherefore G5620 the law G3551 was G1096 (Perf2ActInd) our G2257 schoolmaster G3807 [to bring us] unto G1519 Christ G5547, that G2443 we might be justified G1344 (AorPasSubj) by G1537 faith G4102.
 But G1161 after that faith G4102 is come G2064 (Aor2ActPtc), we are G2070 (PresInd) no longer G2089 G3765 under G5259 a schoolmaster G3807.
 For G1063 ye are G2075 (PresInd) all G3956 the children G5207 of God G2316 by G1223 faith G4102 in G1722 Christ G5547 Jesus G2424.
 For G1063 as many of you as G3745 have been baptized G907 (AorPasInd) into G1519 Christ G5547 have put on G1746 (AorMidInd) Christ G5547.
 There is G1762 (PresInd) neither G3756 Jew G2453 nor G3761 Greek G1672, there is G1762 (PresInd) neither G3756 bond G1401 nor G3761 free G1658, there is G1762 (PresInd) neither G3756 male G730 nor G2532 female G2338: for G1063 ye G5210 are G2075 (PresInd) all G3956 one G1520 in G1722 Christ G5547 Jesus G2424.
 And G1161 if G1487 ye G5210 [be] Christ’s G5547, then G686 are ye G2075 (PresInd) Abraham’s G11 seed G4690, and G2532 heirs G2818 according G2596 to the promise G1860.
Young’s Literal Translation
Galatians 3 (YLT)
 O thoughtless Galatians, who did bewitch you, not to obey the truth-before whose eyes Jesus Christ was described before among you crucified?
 this only do I wish to learn from you-by works of law the Spirit did ye receive, or by the hearing of faith?
 so thoughtless are ye! having begun in the Spirit, now in the flesh do ye end?
 so many things did ye suffer in vain! if, indeed, even in vain.
 He, therefore, who is supplying to you the Spirit, and working mighty acts among you-by works of law or by the hearing of faith is it?
 according as Abraham did believe God, and it was reckoned to him-to righteousness;
 know ye, then, that those of faith-these are sons of Abraham,
 and the Writing having foreseen that by faith God doth declare righteous the nations did proclaim before the good news to Abraham-
 ‘Blessed in thee shall be all the nations;’ so that those of faith are blessed with the faithful Abraham,
 for as many as are of works of law are under a curse, for it hath been written, ‘Cursed is every one who is not remaining in all things that have been written in the Book of the Law-to do them,’
 and that in law no one is declared righteous with God, is evident, because ‘The righteous by faith shall live;’
 and the law is not by faith, but-‘The man who did them shall live in them.’
 Christ did redeem us from the curse of the law, having become for us a curse, for it hath been written, ‘Cursed is every one who is hanging on a tree,’
 that to the nations the blessing of Abraham may come in Christ Jesus, that the promise of the Spirit we may receive through the faith.
 Brethren, as a man I say it, even of man a confirmed covenant no one doth make void or doth add to,
 and to Abraham were the promises spoken, and to his seed; He doth not say, ‘And to seeds,’ as of many, but as of one, ‘And to thy seed,’ which is Christ;
 and this I say, A covenant confirmed before by God to Christ, the law, that came four hundred and thirty years after, doth not set aside, to make void the promise,
 for if by law be the inheritance, it is no more by promise, but to Abraham through promise did God grant it.
 Why, then, the law? on account of the transgressions it was added, till the seed might come to which the promise hath been made, having been set in order through messengers in the hand of a mediator-
 and the mediator is not of one, and God is one-
 the law, then, is against the promises of God?-let it not be! for if a law was given that was able to make alive, truly by law there would have been the righteousness,
 but the Writing did shut up the whole under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ may be given to those believing.
 And before the coming of the faith, under law we were being kept, shut up to the faith about to be revealed,
 so that the law became our child-conductor-to Christ, that by faith we may be declared righteous,
 and the faith having come, no more under a child-conductor are we,
 for ye are all sons of God through the faith in Christ Jesus,
 for as many as to Christ were baptized did put on Christ;
 there is not here Jew or Greek, there is not here servant nor freeman, there is not here male and female, for all ye are one in Christ Jesus;
 and if ye are of Christ then of Abraham ye are seed, and according to promise-heirs.
