Galatians 3:13-14

Context
3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming 1  a curse for us (because it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”) 2  3:14 in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham would come to the Gentiles, 3  so that we could receive the promise of the Spirit by faith.

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

2 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.

3 tn Or “so that the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles in Christ Jesus.”
