The believers (Gal. 3:22)

“But the scripture

Has consigned

All things

Under the power of sin.

What was promised

Through faith

In Jesus Christ

Might be given

To those who believe.”

ἀλλὰ συνέκλεισεν ἡ γραφὴ τὰ πάντα ὑπὸ ἁμαρτίαν ἵνα ἡ ἐπαγγελία ἐκ πίστεως Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ δοθῇ τοῖς πιστεύουσιν.

Paul said, “But (ἀλλὰ) the scripture (ἡ γραφὴ) has consigned (συνέκλεισεν) all things (τὰ πάντα) under the power of sin (ὑπὸ ἁμαρτίαν).  What was promised (ἵνα ἡ ἐπαγγελία) through faith (ἐκ πίστεως) in Jesus Christ (Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ) might be given (δοθῇ) to those who believe (τοῖς πιστεύουσιν).”  Paul explained that the holy scripture biblical passages had declared that all people come under the power of sin.  No one or nothing was exempt.  Only the promise of faith through Jesus Christ, given to those who believe, can change this.  Faith in Jesus Christ will break the power of sin.  Faith makes sin powerless.  How strong is your faith?
