3:1 O! ye witless men of Galatia, who deceived you to obey not to the truth? before whose eyes Jesus Christ is condemned, and in you crucified. O foolish Galatians: who hath bewitched you, that ye should not believe the truth? to whom Jesus Christ was described before the eyes, and among you crucified? O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you that ye should not obey the truth, to whom Jesus Christ before was described in your sight, & among you crucified? O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?
3:2 This thing only will I learn of you, have ye taken the Spirit by the works of the law, by the hearing of belief? This only would I learn of you. received ye the spirit by the deeds of the law? or else by preaching of the faith? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the Law, or by the hearing of faith preached? This only would I learn of you, received ye the spirit, by the works of the Law, or by the hearing of faith?
3:3 So ye be fools, that when ye have begun in Spirit, now ye be ended by flesh. Are ye so unwise, that after ye have begun in the spirit, ye would now end in the flesh? Are ye so foolish, that after ye have begun in the Spirit, ye would now be made perfect by the flesh? Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?
3:4 Ye have suffered so many things without cause, if it be without cause. So many things ye have suffered in vain. If it be so that ye have suffered in vain. Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if so be it be even in vain. Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain.
3:5 Therefore he that giveth to you the Spirit, and worketh works of power in you, whether of the works of the law, or of hearing of faith? Which ministered to you the spirit, and worketh miracles among you doeth he it through the deeds of the law? or by preaching of the faith? He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, & worketh miracles among you, doeth he it through the works of the Law, or by the hearing of faith preached? He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the Law, or by the hearing of faith?
3:6 As it is written, Abraham believed to God, and it was reckoned to him to rightwiseness. Even as Abraham believed god, and it was ascribed to him for rightwiseness. Yea rather as Abraham believed God, & it was imputed to him for righteousness. Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.
3:7 Therefore know ye, that they that be of faith, they be the sons of Abraham. Understand therefore, that they which are of faith, are the children of Abraham. Know ye therefore, that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. Know ye therefore, that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.
3:8 And the scripture seeing afar, for God justifieth of faith heathen men, told before to Abraham, For in thee all folks, shall be blessed. The scripture saw aforehand, that god would justify the heathen through faith, and shewed beforehand glad tidings unto Abraham: In thee shall all nations be blessed. For the Scripture foreseeing, that God would justify the Gentiles through faith, preached before the Gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all the Gentiles be blessed. And the Scripture foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the Gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.
3:9 Therefore they that be of faith, shall be blessed with faithful Abraham. So then they which be of faith, are blessed with faithful Abraham. So then they which be of faith, are blessed with faithful Abraham. So then, they which be of faith, are blessed with faithful Abraham.
3:10 Forsooth whoever be of the works of the law, be under curse; for it is written, Cursed is each man, that dwelleth not in all things that be written in the book of the law, that he do them. For as many as are under the deeds of the law, are under malediction. For it is written: cursed is every man that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to fulfill them. For as many as are of the works of the Law, are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every man that continueth not in all things, which are written in the book of the Law, to do them. For as many as are of the works of the law, are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the Law to do them.
3:11 Forsooth for no man is justified in the law with God, it is known, for a rightful man liveth by faith. That no man is justified by the law in the sight of god is evident. For the just shall live by faith. And that no man is justified by the Law in the sight of God, it is evident: for the just shall live by faith. But that no man is justified by the Law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.
3:12 But the law is not of belief, but he that doeth those things, shall live in them. The law is not of faith: but the man that fulfilleth the things contained in the law, shall live in them. And the Law is not of faith: but the man that shall do those things, shall live in them. And the Law is not of faith: but the man that doeth them, shall live in them.
3:13 Christ delivered us from the curse of the law, made for us the curse; for it is written, Cursed is each that hangeth in the tree; Christ hath delivered us from the curse of the law, and was made accursed for us (for it is written: Cursed is every one that hangeth on tree) Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the Law, when he was made a curse for us (for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on tree) Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the Law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on tree:
3:14 that the blessing of Abraham in heathen men should be made in Christ Jesus, that we take the promise of Spirit by faith. that the blessing of Abraham might come on the gentiles through Jesus Christ, that we might receive the promise of the spirit through faith. That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles, through Jesus Christ: that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
3:15 Brethren, I say after man, no man despiseth the testament of a man that is confirmed, or above-ordaineth other thing. Brethren I will speak after the manner of men: Though it be but a man’s testament, yet no man despiseth it, or addeth any thing thereto when it is once allowed. Brethren, I speak as men do, Though it be but a man’s covenant when it is confirmed, yet no man doth abrogate it, or addeth any thing thereto. Brethren, I speak after the manner of men: though it be but a man’s covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.
3:16 The promises were said to Abraham and to his seed; he saith not, In the seeds, as in many, but as in one, And to thy seed, that is, Christ. To Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, in thy seeds as in many: But in thy seed, as in one, which is Christ. Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to the seeds, as speaking of many: but, And to thy seed, as of one, which is Christ. Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many, but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.
3:17 Forsooth I say this, a testament confirmed of God, which after four hundred years and thirty is made law, maketh not void for to do away the promise. This I say that the law which began afterward, beyond four hundred and thirty years, doth not disannul the testament, that was confirmed of god unto Christ-ward, to make the promise of none effect. And this I say, that the Law which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul the covenant that was confirmed afore of God in respect of Christ, that it should make the promise of none effect. And this I say, that the Covenant that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the Law which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.
3:18 For if the heritage were of the law, it were not now of promise. Forsooth God gave to Abraham by again-promise. For if the inheritance come of the law, it cometh not of promise: but god gave it unto Abraham by promise. For if the inheritance be of the Law, it is no more by the promise, but God gave it unto Abraham by promise. For if the inheritance be of the Law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.
3:19 What therefore profiteth the law? It was set for trespassing, till the seed came, to whom he had made the promise. Which law was ordained by angels, in the hand of a mediator. Wherefore then serveth the law? The law was added because of transgression (till the seed came unto which seed the promise was made) and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator. Wherefore then serveth the Law? It was added because of the transgressions, till the seed came unto the which the promise was made: & it was ordained by Angels in the hand of a Mediator. Wherefore then serveth the Law? it was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come, to whom the promise was made, and it was ordained by Angels in the hand of a Mediator.
3:20 But a mediator is not of one. But God is one. A mediator is not a mediator of one. But god is one. Now a Mediator is not a Mediator of one: but God is one. Now a mediator is not a Mediator of one, but God is one.
3:21 Is then the law against the promises of God? Far be it. For if there were a law given, which might quicken, verily rightwiseness were of law. Is the law then against the promise of god? God forbid. If there had been a law given which could have given life: then no doubt rightwiseness should have come by the law: Is the Law then against the promise of God? God forbid: for if there had been a Law given which could have given life, surely righteousness should have been by the Law. Is the Law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a Law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the Law.
3:22 But the scripture hath concluded all things under sin, that the promise of faith of Jesus Christ were given to them that believe. but the scripture concluded all things under sin, that the promise by the faith of Jesus Christ, should be given unto them that believe. But the Scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by the faith of Jesus Christ should be given to them that believe. But the Scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.
3:23 Forsooth before that the faith came, we were kept under the law, shut together into that faith that was to be shewed. Before that faith came, we were kept and shut up under the law, unto the faith which should afterward be declared. But before faith came, we were kept under the Law, and shut up unto the faith, which should afterward be revealed. But before faith came, we were kept under the Law, shut up unto the faith, which should afterwards be revealed.
3:24 Therefore the law was our little master in Christ, that we be justified of faith. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster unto the time of Christ, that we might be made rightwise by faith. Wherefore the Law was our schoolmaster to bring us to Christ, that we might be made righteous by faith. Wherefore the Law was our Schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by Faith.
3:25 But after that the faith came, we be not now under the under-master. But after that faith is come, now are we no longer under a schoolmaster. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. But after that Faith is come, we are no longer under a Schoolmaster.
3:26 For all ye be the sons of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For ye are all the sons of god, by the faith which is in Christ Jesus. For ye are all the sons of God by faith, in Christ Jesus. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
3:27 Forsooth whoever ye be baptized in Christ, ye have clothed in Christ. For all ye that are baptised, have put Christ on you. For all ye that are baptized into Christ, have put on Christ. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ, have put on Christ.
3:28 There is not Jew, neither Greek; there is not servant, neither free man; there is not male, neither female; for all ye be one in Christ Jesus. Now is there no Jew, neither greek: there is neither bond, neither free: there is neither man, neither woman: for all are one thing in Christ Jesus. There is neither Jew nor Grecian: there is neither bond nor free: there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. There is neither Jew, nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
3:29 Forsooth if ye be of Christ, therefore ye be seed of Abraham, after the promise ye be heirs. if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs by promise. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs by promise. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
