I have some problems concerning hOI EK PISTEWS in Galatians. Should I
understand hOI EK PISTEWS in Gal 3:7,9 as A) a separate and independent
saying having a clear message on its own (like 'those who have faith' or
'those who believe') or B) should I connect it with the following verb and
related words (EISIN in verse 7 and EULOGOUNTAI in verse 9)? In verse 7
hOUTOI seems to indicate that hOI EK PISTEWS is separate, but verse 9
doesn't have such hOUTOI.
GINWSKETE ARA hOTI hOI EK PISTEWS hOUTOI hUIOI EISIN ABRAAM
Know then that [only] those
A) who have faith are sons of Abraham.
B) who are sons because of faith are sons of Abraham.
hWSTE hOI EK PISTEWS EULOGOUNTAI SUN TWi PISTWi ABRAAM
So that [only] those
A) who have faith are blessed with believing Abraham.
B) who are blessed because of faith are blessed with believing Abraham.
