Galatians 3:3
Are ye so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?
Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now perfected in the flesh?
Are you so foolish and senseless? Having begun [your new life by faith] with the Spirit, are you now being perfected and reaching spiritual maturity by the flesh [that is, by your own works and efforts to keep the Law]?
Are you so foolish and so senseless and so silly? Having begun [your new life spiritually] with the [Holy] Spirit, are you now reaching perfection [by dependence] on the flesh?
Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?
Are you so irrational? After you started with the Spirit, are you now finishing up with your own human effort?
Are you that stupid? Having begun with the Spirit’s power, do you think you can reach the goal under your own power?
How can you be so stupid? Do you think that by yourself you can complete what God’s Spirit started in you?
Are ye so senseless? having begun in Spirit, are ye going to be made perfect in flesh?
Are you so foolish? Having begun-with the Spirit are you now perfecting-yourselves with the flesh?
Are you so foolish, that, whereas you began in the Spirit, you would now be made perfect by the flesh?
You began your life in Christ with the Spirit. Now do you try to complete it by your own power? That is foolish.
Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?
Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?
·Are you so foolish [How can you be so stupid]? You began ·your life in Christ by [L by; or through] the Spirit. Now are you trying to ·make it complete [finish; or be perfected] by ·your own power [human effort; L the flesh]?

O you dear idiots of Galatia, who saw Jesus Christ the crucified so plainly, who has been casting a spell over you? I will ask you one simple question: did you receive the Spirit of God by trying to keep the Law or by believing the message of the Gospel? Surely you can’t be so idiotic as to think that a man begins his spiritual life in the Spirit and then completes it by reverting to outward observances? Has all your painful experience brought you nowhere? I simply cannot believe it of you! Does God, who gives you his Spirit and works miracles among you, do these things because you have obeyed the Law or because you have believed the Gospel? Ask yourselves that.
Are ye so foolish? having begun by the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?

Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?
Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now trying to be made complete by the flesh?
Then have you gone completely crazy? For if trying to obey the Jewish laws never gave you spiritual life in the first place, why do you think that trying to obey them now will make you stronger Christians?
Let me put this question to you: How did your new life begin? Was it by working your heads off to please God? Or was it by responding to God’s Message to you? Are you going to continue this craziness? For only crazy people would think they could complete by their own efforts what was begun by God. If you weren’t smart enough or strong enough to begin it, how do you suppose you could perfect it? Did you go through this whole painful learning process for nothing? It is not yet a total loss, but it certainly will be if you keep this up!

so thoughtless are ye! having begun in the Spirit, now in the flesh do ye end?
