Galatians 3:7

Context
3:7 so then, understand 1  that those who believe are the sons of Abraham. 2 

Galatians 3:29

Context
3:29 And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, 3  heirs according to the promise.

1 tn Grk “know.”

2 tn The phrase “sons of Abraham” is used here in a figurative sense to describe people who are connected to a personality, Abraham, by close nonmaterial ties. It is this personality that has defined the relationship and its characteristics (BDAG 1024-25 s.v. υἱός 2.c.α).

3 tn Grk “seed.” See the note on the first occurrence of the word “descendant” in 3:16.
