Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:1 - Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all,

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:2 - but is under guardians and stewards until the time appointed by the father.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:3 - Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:4 - But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born[fn] of a woman, born under the law,

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:5 - to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:6 - And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!”

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:7 - Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of[fn] God through Christ.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:8 - But then, indeed, when you did not know God, you served those which by nature are not gods.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:9 - But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage?

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:10 - You observe days and months and seasons and years.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:11 - I am afraid for you, lest I have labored for you in vain.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:12 - Brethren, I urge you to become like me, for I became like you. You have not injured me at all.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:13 - You know that because of physical infirmity I preached the gospel to you at the first.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:14 - And my trial which was in my flesh you did not despise or reject, but you received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:15 - What[fn] then was the blessing you enjoyed? For I bear you witness that, if possible, you would have plucked out your own eyes and given them to me.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:16 - Have I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:17 - They zealously court you, but for no good; yes, they want to exclude you, that you may be zealous for them.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:18 - But it is good to be zealous in a good thing always, and not only when I am present with you.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:19 - My little children, for whom I labor in birth again until Christ is formed in you,

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:20 - I would like to be present with you now and to change my tone; for I have doubts about you.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:21 - Tell me, you who desire to be under the law, do you not hear the law?

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:22 - For it is written that Abraham had two sons: the one by a bondwoman, the other by a freewoman.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:23 - But he who was of the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, and he of the freewoman through promise,

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:24 - which things are symbolic. For these are the[fn] two covenants: the one from Mount Sinai which gives birth to bondage, which is Hagar—

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:25 - for this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, and corresponds to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children—

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:26 - but the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:27 - For it is written:

“Rejoice, O barren,
You who do not bear!
Break forth and shout,
You who are not in labor!
For the desolate has many more children
Than she who has a husband.”
[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:28 - Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:29 - But, as he who was born according to the flesh then persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, even so it is now.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:30 - Nevertheless what does the Scripture say? “Cast out the bondwoman and her son, for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.”[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 4:31 - So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman but of the free.
