Therefore, [a]be sure that (A)it is those who are of faith who are (B)sons of Abraham. The Scripture, foreseeing that God [b]would justify the [c]Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, “(C)All the nations will be blessed in you. So then (D)those who are of faith are blessed with [d]Abraham, the believer.

10 For as many as are of the works of [e]the Law are under a curse; for it is written, “(E)Cursed is everyone who does not abide by all things written in the book of the law, to perform them.” 11 Now that (F)no one is justified [f]by [g]the Law before God is evident; for, “[h](G)The righteous man shall live by faith.” 12 [i]However, the Law is not [j]of faith; on the contrary, “(H)He who practices them shall live [k]by them.” 13 Christ (I)redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us—for it is written, “(J)Cursed is everyone who hangs on (K)a [l]tree”— 14 in order that (L)in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might [m]come to the Gentiles, so that we (M)would receive (N)the promise of the Spirit through faith.
