Galatians 3:9-14

Context
3:9 So then those who believe 1  are blessed along with Abraham the believer. 3:10 For all who 2  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. 3  3:11 Now it is clear no one is justified before God by the law, because the righteous one will live by faith. 4  3:12 But the law is not based on faith, 5  but the one who does the works of the law 6  will live by them. 7  3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming 8  a curse for us (because it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”) 9  3:14 in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham would come to the Gentiles, 10  so that we could receive the promise of the Spirit by faith.

1 tn Grk “those who are by faith,” with the Greek expression “by faith” (ἐκ πίστεως, ek pistew") the same as the expression in v. 8.

2 tn Grk “For as many as.”

3 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.

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

5 tn Grk “is not from faith.”

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

7 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.

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

9 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.

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