Galatim 3 – איגרת שאול אל הגלאטים ג

t.o.c.

1O foolish Galatim, who has bewitched you from your Emunah, after Yeshua HaMashi’akh, executed on the stake, has been shown before your eyes?  2This only I want to know from you: did you receive HaRu’akh through the works of the Torah, or through hearing of HaEmunah?  3Are you so foolish, after having begun with spiritual things, to end now with things of the flesh?  4Have you believed all these things in vain?  I hope that it is to no purpose.  5Does he therefore who gives you HaRu’akh and works miracles among you do these things by the works of the Torah, or by hearing and obedience to HaEmunah?

6Just as Avraham trusted Elohim, and it was accounted to him for tzedaka, 7you must know therefore that those who trust, in absolute trust, are the children of Avraham.  8Because Elohim knew in advance that the nations would be declared righteous through absolute trust, he first declared to Avraham, as it is said in the Kadosh Scriptures, “In you shall all the nations be blessed.”  9So then, it is those who trust who are blessed through Avraham the trusting one.  10For those who rely on the works of the Torah are still under the curse; for as it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not practice everything which is written in the book of the Torah.”  11But that no man is justified by the Torah before Elohim is evident; for, as it is written, “The Tzadik shall live by absolute trust.”  12Thus the Torah is not made by Emunah, but, whoever shall do the things which are written in it shall live in it.  13Mashi’akh has redeemed us from the curse in the Torah by becoming accursed for our sakes; for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree,” 14that the blessing of Avraham might come on the nations through Yeshua HaMashi’akh, that we might receive the promise of HaRu’akh through absolute trust.  15My brethren, I speak as a man: though it be but a man’s covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man can reject it or change anything in it.  16Now the promises were made to Avraham and to his seed as a covenant.  He did not say, “To your seeds,” as of many, but, “To your seed,” as One, that is Mashi’akh.  17And, this I say, that the covenant which was previously confirmed of Elohim in Mashi’akh cannot be repudiated, nor the promise nullified by the Torah which came four hundred and thirty years later.  18For if the inheritance is by the Torah, then it would not be as the fulfillment of promise; but Elohim gave it to Avraham by promise.  

19Then what is the use of the Torah? It was added because of transgression, until the coming of the heir to whom the promise was made; and the Torah was given by Malakhim by the hand of a mediator.  20Now a mediator does not represent one alone, but Elohim is one.  21Is the Torah then against the promises of Elohim? What profanity!  For, if a law had been given which could have wrought life, tzedaka would truly have come as the result of the Torah.  22But the scripture has included everything under sin, that the promise by HaEmunah of Yeshua HaMashi’akh might be given to those who trust.  23But before Emunah came, we were guided by the Torah, while we were waiting for HaEmunah which was to be revealed.  24The Torah then was our tutor, to bring us to Mashi’akh, that we might be justified by absolute trust.  25But, since Emunah has come, we no longer are in need of many tutors.  26For you are all the children of Elohim by absolute trust in Yeshua HaMashi’akh.  27For those who have been immersed in the name of Mashi’akh have been clothed with Mashi’akh.  28There is neither Yehudi nor Arami, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Yeshua HaMashi’akh.  29So if you belong to Mashi’akh, then you are descendants of Avraham, and his heirs according to the promise.
