The Letter of Saint Paul to the Galatians   3: 7-14

3:7 Therefore, know that those who are of faith, these are the sons of Abraham.
3:8 Thus Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, foretold to Abraham: “All nations shall be blessed in you.”
3:9 And so, those who are of faith shall be blessed with faithful Abraham.
3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under a curse. For it has been written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all the things that have been written in the book of the Law, so as to do them.”
3:11 And, since in the law no one is justified with God, this is manifest: “For the just man lives by faith.”
3:12 But the law is not of faith; instead, “he who does these things shall live by them.”
3:13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, since he became a curse for us. For it is written: “Cursed is anyone who hangs from a tree.”
3:14 This was so that the blessing of Abraham might reach the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, in order that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
