Tools specific to Gal 4:1

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:1

Now I say, As long as the heir is a child, he differs nothing from a bondman, though he be lord of all;

Tools specific to Gal 4:2

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:2

but he is under guardians and stewards until the period fixed by the father.

Tools specific to Gal 4:3

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:3

So we also, when we were children, were held in bondage under the principles of the world;

Tools specific to Gal 4:4

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:4

but when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, come of woman, come under law,

Tools specific to Gal 4:5

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:5

that he might redeem those under law, that we might receive sonship.

Tools specific to Gal 4:6

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:6

But because ye are sons, God has sent out the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

Tools specific to Gal 4:7

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:7

So thou art no longer bondman, but son; but if son, heir also through God.

Tools specific to Gal 4:8

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:8

But then indeed, not knowing God, ye were in bondage to those who by nature are not gods;

Tools specific to Gal 4:9

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:9

but now, knowing God, but rather being known by God, how do ye turn again to the weak and beggarly principles to which ye desire to be again anew in bondage?

Tools specific to Gal 4:10

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:10

Ye observe days and months and times and years.

Tools specific to Gal 4:11

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:11

I am afraid of you, lest indeed I have laboured in vain as to you.

Tools specific to Gal 4:12

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:12

Be as *I* am, for *I* also am as *ye*, brethren, I beseech you: ye have not at all wronged me.

Tools specific to Gal 4:13

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:13

But ye know that in weakness of the flesh I announced the glad tidings to you at the first;

Tools specific to Gal 4:14

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:14

and my temptation, which was in my flesh, ye did not slight nor reject with contempt; but ye received me as an angel of God, as Christ Jesus.

Tools specific to Gal 4:15

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:15

What then was your blessedness? for I bear you witness that, if possible, plucking out your own eyes ye would have given them to me.

Tools specific to Gal 4:16

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:16

So I have become your enemy in speaking the truth to you?

Tools specific to Gal 4:17

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:17

They are not rightly zealous after you, but desire to shut you out from us, that ye may be zealous after them.

Tools specific to Gal 4:18

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:18

But it is right to be zealous at all times in what is right, and not only when I am present with you --

Tools specific to Gal 4:19

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:19

my children, of whom I again travail in birth until Christ shall have been formed in you:

Tools specific to Gal 4:20

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:20

and I should wish to be present with you now, and change my voice, for I am perplexed as to you.

Tools specific to Gal 4:21

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:21

Tell me, ye who are desirous of being under law, do ye not listen to the law?

Tools specific to Gal 4:22

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:22

For it is written that Abraham had two sons; one of the maid servant, and one of the free woman.

Tools specific to Gal 4:23

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:23

But he that was of the maid servant was born according to flesh, and he that was of the free woman through the promise.

Tools specific to Gal 4:24

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:24

Which things have an allegorical sense; for these are two covenants: one from mount Sinai, gendering to bondage, which is Hagar.

Tools specific to Gal 4:25

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:25

For Hagar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and corresponds to Jerusalem which is now, for she is in bondage with her children;

Tools specific to Gal 4:26

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:26

but the Jerusalem above is free, which is our mother.

Tools specific to Gal 4:27

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:27

For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break out and cry, thou that travailest not; because the children of the desolate are more numerous than those of her that has a husband.

Tools specific to Gal 4:28

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:28

But *ye*, brethren, after the pattern of Isaac, are children of promise.

Tools specific to Gal 4:29

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:29

But as then he that was born according to flesh persecuted him that was born according to Spirit, so also it is now.

Tools specific to Gal 4:30

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:30

But what says the scripture? Cast out the maid servant and her son; for the son of the maid servant shall not inherit with the son of the free woman.

Tools specific to Gal 4:31

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 4:31

So then, brethren, we are not maid servant's children, but children of the free woman.
