Galatians 3:10-13

Context
3:10 For all who 1  rely on doing the works of the law are under a curse, because it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not keep on doing everything written in the book of the law. 2  3:11 Now it is clear no one is justified before God by the law, because the righteous one will live by faith. 3  3:12 But the law is not based on faith, 4  but the one who does the works of the law 5  will live by them. 6  3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming 7  a curse for us (because it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”) 8 

1 tn Grk “For as many as.”

2 tn Grk “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all the things written in the book of the law, to do them.”

sn A quotation from Deut 27:26.

3 tn Or “The one who is righteous by faith will live” (a quotation from Hab 2:4).

4 tn Grk “is not from faith.”

5 tn Grk “who does these things”; the referent (the works of the law, see 3:5) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

6 sn A quotation from Lev 18:5. The phrase the works of the law is an editorial expansion on the Greek text (see previous note); it has been left as normal typeface to indicate it is not part of the OT text.

7 tn Grk “having become”; the participle γενόμενος (genomenos) has been taken instrumentally.

8 sn A quotation from Deut 21:23. By figurative extension the Greek word translated tree (ζύλον, zulon) can also be used to refer to a cross (L&N 6.28), the Roman instrument of execution.
