King James Version (KJV)
“2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit (the Ruwach: the Expression, etc..) by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?”
Paul asking the congregation of Galatia if they realize righteousness and faith are one in the same; how putting faith into action voids the curse of law: A warning to those who would want law over righteous works.
