O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you?
Ὦ ἀνόητοι Γαλάται, τίς ὑμᾶς ⸀ ἐβάσκανεν,
z It was before your eyes that Jesus Christ was publicly a portrayed as crucified.
οἷς κατ’ ὀφθαλμοὺς Ἰησοῦς Χριστὸς ⸀ προεγράφη ἐσταυρωμένος;

Let me ask you only this:
τοῦτο μόνον θέλω μαθεῖν ἀφ’ ὑμῶν,
b Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law
ἐξ ἔργων νόμου τὸ πνεῦμα ἐλάβετε
or by c hearing with faith?
ἢ ἐξ ἀκοῆς πίστεως;

Are you so foolish?
οὕτως ἀνόητοί ἐστε;
d that after Having begun by the Spirit,

are you now being perfected by 1 the flesh?

or does He do so by hearing with faith

just as h Abraham “believed God,
καθὼς Ἀβραὰμ ἐπίστευσεν τῷ θεῷ,
and it was counted to him as righteousness”?
καὶ ἐλογίσθη αὐτῷ εἰς δικαιοσύνην.
comparison
Know then that it is i those of faith who are j the sons of Abraham.
Γινώσκετε ἄρα ὅτι οἱ ἐκ πίστεως, οὗτοι ⸂ υἱοί εἰσιν ⸃ Ἀβραάμ.
And the Scripture, foreseeing that k God would justify 1 the Gentiles by faith,
προϊδοῦσα δὲ ἡ γραφὴ ὅτι ἐκ πίστεως δικαιοῖ τὰ ἔθνη ὁ θεὸς
preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying,
προευηγγελίσατο τῷ Ἀβραὰμ ὅτι
l “In you shall all the nations be blessed.”

So then, those who are of faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.
ὥστε οἱ ἐκ πίστεως εὐλογοῦνται σὺν τῷ πιστῷ Ἀβραάμ.
