Galatians 3:16–29

16 Now hhto Abraham and his seed were ithe promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but jas of one, kAnd to thy seed, which is Christ. 17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, lwhich was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot mdisannul, that it should nomake the promise of none effect. 18 For if othe inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.

19 Wherefore then serveth the law? pIt was added because of transgressions, till kthe seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was qordained by angels rin the hand of a mediator. 20 Now a smediator is not a mediator of one, but tGod is one. 21 Is the law then against the promises of God? uGod forbid: wfor if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law. 22 But xthe scripture hath yconcluded all under sin, zthat the promise by afaith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. 23 But bbefore faith came, we were ckept under the law, yshut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. 24 Wherefore dthe law was our eschoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, fthat we might be justified by faith. 25 But bafter that faith is come, we are no longer under a eschoolmaster. 26 For gye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For has many of you as have been baptized into Christ ihave put on Christ. 28 There is kneither Jew nor Greek, there is lneither bond nor free, there is mneither male nor female: for nye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if oye be Christ’s, pthen are ye Abraham’s seed, and qheirs according to the promise.
