1. O senseless Galatians, who has bewitched you; to whom, as before your very eyes, Jesus Christ has been portrayed, crucified {among you}?

2. This only I wish to learn of you, Have ye received the Spirit on the principle of works of law, or of {the} report of faith?

3. Are ye so senseless? having begun in Spirit, are ye going to be made perfect in flesh?

4. Have ye suffered so many things in vain, if indeed also in vain?

5. He therefore who ministers to you the Spirit, and works miracles among you, {is it} on the principle of works of law, or of {the} report of faith?

6. Even as Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness.

7. Know then that they that are on the principle of faith, these are Abraham's sons;

8. and the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the nations on the principle of faith, announced beforehand the glad tidings to Abraham: In thee all the nations shall be blessed.

9. So that they who are on the principle of faith are blessed with believing Abraham.

10. For as many as are on the principle of works of law are under curse. For it is written, Cursed is every one who does not continue in all things which {are} written in the book of the law to do them;

11. but that by law no one is justified with God {is} evident, because The just shall live on the principle of faith;

12. but the law is not on the principle of faith; but, He that shall have done these things shall live by them.

13. Christ has redeemed us out of the curse of the law, having become a curse for us, (for it is written, Cursed {is} every one hanged upon a tree,)

14. that the blessing of Abraham might come to the nations in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

15. Brethren, (I speak according to man,) even man's confirmed covenant no one sets aside, or adds other dispositions to.

16. But to Abraham were the promises addressed, and to his seed: he does not say, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed; which is Christ.

17. Now I say this, A covenant confirmed beforehand by God, the law, which took place four hundred and thirty years after, does not annul, so as to make the promise of no effect.

18. For if the inheritance {be} on the principle of law, {it is} no longer on the principle of promise; but God gave it in grace to Abraham by promise.

19. Why then the law? It was added for the sake of transgressions, until the seed came to whom the promise was made, ordained through angels in {the} hand of a mediator.

20. But a mediator is not of one, but God is one.

21. {Is} then the law against the promises of God? Far be the thought. For if a law had been given able to quicken, then indeed righteousness were on the principle of law;

22. but the scripture has shut up all things under sin, that the promise, on the principle of faith of Jesus Christ, should be given to those that believe.

23. But before faith came, we were guarded under law, shut up to faith {which was} about to be revealed.

24. So that the law has been our tutor up to Christ, that we might be justified on the principle of faith.

25. But, faith having come, we are no longer under a tutor;

26. for ye are all God's sons by faith in Christ Jesus.

27. For ye, as many as have been baptised unto Christ, have put on Christ.

28. There is no Jew nor Greek; there is no bondman nor freeman; there is no male and female; for ye are all one in Christ Jesus:

29. but if *ye* {are} of Christ, then ye are Abraham's seed, heirs according to promise.

1. Now I say, As long as the heir is a child, he differs nothing from a bondman, though he be lord of all;

2. but he is under guardians and stewards until the period fixed by the father.

3. So we also, when we were children, were held in bondage under the principles of the world;

4. but when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, come of woman, come under law,

5. that he might redeem those under law, that we might receive sonship.

6. But because ye are sons, God has sent out the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

7. So thou art no longer bondman, but son; but if son, heir also through God.

8. But then indeed, not knowing God, ye were in bondage to those who by nature are not gods;

9. but now, knowing God, but rather being known by God, how do ye turn again to the weak and beggarly principles to which ye desire to be again anew in bondage?

10. Ye observe days and months and times and years.

11. I am afraid of you, lest indeed I have laboured in vain as to you.

12. Be as *I* {am}, for *I* also {am} as *ye*, brethren, I beseech you: ye have not at all wronged me.

13. But ye know that in weakness of the flesh I announced the glad tidings to you at the first;

14. and my temptation, which {was} in my flesh, ye did not slight nor reject with contempt; but ye received me as an angel of God, as Christ Jesus.

15. What then {was} your blessedness? for I bear you witness that, if possible, plucking out your own eyes ye would have given {them} to me.

16. So I have become your enemy in speaking the truth to you?

17. They are not rightly zealous after you, but desire to shut you out {from us}, that ye may be zealous after them.

18. But {it is} right to be zealous at all times in what is right, and not only when I am present with you-

19. my children, of whom I again travail in birth until Christ shall have been formed in you:

20. and I should wish to be present with you now, and change my voice, for I am perplexed as to you.

21. Tell me, ye who are desirous of being under law, do ye not listen to the law?

22. For it is written that Abraham had two sons; one of the maid servant, and one of the free woman.

23. But he {that was} of the maid servant was born according to flesh, and he {that was} of the free woman through the promise.

24. Which things have an allegorical sense; for these are two covenants: one from mount Sinai, gendering to bondage, which is Hagar.

25. For Hagar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and corresponds to Jerusalem which {is} now, for she is in bondage with her children;

26. but the Jerusalem above is free, which is our mother.

27. For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break out and cry, thou that travailest not; because the children of the desolate are more numerous than {those} of her that has a husband.

28. But *ye*, brethren, after the pattern of Isaac, are children of promise.

29. But as then he that was born according to flesh persecuted him {that was born} according to Spirit, so also {it is} now.

30. But what says the scripture? Cast out the maid servant and her son; for the son of the maid servant shall not inherit with the son of the free woman.

31. So then, brethren, we are not maid servant's children, but {children} of the free woman.
