Galatians 3:3-4

Context
3:3 Are you so foolish? Although you began 1  with 2  the Spirit, are you now trying to finish 3  by human effort? 4  3:4 Have you suffered so many things for nothing? – if indeed it was for nothing.

1 tn Grk “Having begun”; the participle ἐναρξάμενοι (enarxamenoi) has been translated concessively.

2 tn Or “by the Spirit.”

3 tn The verb ἐπιτελεῖσθε (epiteleisqe) has been translated as a conative present (see ExSyn 534). This is something the Galatians were attempting to do, but could not accomplish successfully.

4 tn Grk “in/by [the] flesh.”
