The Righteous Shall Live by Faith

10 For all who rely on works of the law are (A)under a curse; for it is written, (B)“Cursed be everyone who does not (C)abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them.” 11 Now it is evident that (D)no one is justified before God by the law, for (E)“The righteous shall live by faith.”[a] 12 But the law is not of faith, rather (F)“The one who does them shall live by them.” 13 Christ (G)redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, (H)“Cursed is everyone who is hanged (I)on a tree”— 14 so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might (J)come to the Gentiles, so that (K)we might receive (L)the promised Spirit[b] through faith.
