Galatians 2:21-3:7 (Epistle)

21
I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain.
1
O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed among you as crucified?
2
This only I want to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
3
Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh?
4
Have you suffered so many things in vain – if indeed it was in vain?
5
Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? –
6
just as Abraham “believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.”
7
Therefore know that only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham.
