For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise. But God gave it to Abraham by promise.
King James
For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.

Car si l'héritage venait de la loi, il ne viendrait plus de la promesse; or, c'est par la promesse que Dieu a fait à Abraham ce don de sa grâce

Denn so das Erbe durch das Gesetz erworben würde, so würde es nicht durch Verheißung gegeben. GOtt aber hat es Abraham durch Verheißung frei geschenkt.
