Galatians 3:6-9 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

As it is written, Abraham believed to God, and it was reckoned to him to rightwiseness.

And therefore know ye, that these that be of belief, be the sons of Abraham.[a]

And the scripture seeing afar, that God justifieth the heathen of belief, told before to Abraham, That in thee all the heathen shall be blessed [for God justifieth of faith heathen men, told before to Abraham, For in thee all folks, or heathen men, shall be blessed].

And therefore these that be of belief [Therefore they that be of faith], shall be blessed with faithful Abraham.

Footnotes:

  1. Galatians 3:7 Therefore know ye, that they that be of faith, they be the sons of Abraham.

Galatians 3:6-9 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

It is even as Abraham believed God, and it was ascribed to him for righteousness. Understand therefore that it is those who are of faith who are the children of Abraham.

For the scripture foresaw that God would justify the heathen through faith, and therefore showed beforehand glad tidings to Abraham: In you shall all nations be blessed. So then, those who are of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.

Galatians 3:6-9 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

[a]Yea rather as [b]Abraham believed God, and it was imputed to him for righteousness.

[c]Know ye therefore, that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.

[d]For the Scripture foreseeing, that God would justify the Gentiles through faith, preached before the Gospel unto Abraham, saying, [e]In thee shall all the Gentiles be [f]blessed.

[g]So then they which be of faith, are blessed with [h]faithful Abraham.

Footnotes:

  1. Galatians 3:6 The first argument which is of great force, and hath three grounds, The first, That Abraham was justified by faith, to wit, by free imputation of righteousness according to the promise apprehended by faith, as Moses doth most plainly witness.
  2. Galatians 3:6 See Rom. 4.
  3. Galatians 3:7 The second, that the sons of Abraham must be esteemed and accounted of by faith.
  4. Galatians 3:8 The third, that all people that believe, are without exception, comprehended in the promise of the blessing.
  5. Galatians 3:8 A proof of the first and second grounds, out of the words of Moses.
  6. Galatians 3:8 Blessing in this place, signifieth the free promise by faith.
  7. Galatians 3:9 The conclusion of the fifth argument: Therefore as Abraham is blessed by faith, so are all his children (that is to say, all the Gentiles that believe) blessed, that is to say, freely justified.
  8. Galatians 3:9 With faithful Abraham, and not by faithful Abraham, to give us to understand that the blessing cometh not from Abraham, but from him, by whom Abraham and all his posterity is blessed.
