NowG2236 I say,G3004 That the heir,G2818 as longG5550 as he is a child,G3516 differsG1308 nothingG3762 from a servant,G1401 though he be lordG2962 of all;G3956
But is underG5259 tutorsG2012 and governorsG3623 untilG891 the timeG4287 appointedG4287 of the father.G3962
EvenG2532 soG3779 we, whenG3753 we were children,G3516 were in bondageG1402 underG5259 the elementsG4747 of the world:G2889
But whenG3753 the fullnessG4138 of the timeG5550 was come,G2064 GodG2316 sentG1821 forthG1821 his Son,G5207 madeG1096 of a woman,G1135 madeG1096 underG5259 the law,G3551
To redeemG1805 them that were underG5259 the law,G3551 that we might receiveG618 the adoptionG5206 of sons.G5206
And becauseG3754 you are sons,G5207 GodG2316 has sentG1821 forthG1821 the SpiritG4151 of his SonG5207 intoG1519 yourG5216 hearts,G2588 crying,G2896 Abba,G5 Father.G3962
WhyG5620 you areG1488 noG3765 moreG2089 a servant,G1401 but a son;G5207 and ifG1487 a son,G5207 thenG2532 an heirG2818 of GodG2316 throughG1223 Christ.G5547
However,G235 then,G5119 when you knewG1492 not God,G2316 you did serviceG1398 to them which by natureG5449 are noG3361 gods.G2316
But now,G3568 after that you have knownG1097 God,G2316 orG1161 ratherG3123 are knownG1097 of God,G2316 howG4459 turnG1994 you againG3825 to the weakG772 and beggarlyG4434 elements,G4747 whereuntoG3739 you desireG2309 againG3825 G509 to be in bondage?G1398
You observeG3906 days,G2250 and months,G3376 and times,G2540 and years.G1763
I am afraidG5399 of you, lestG3381 I have bestowedG2872 on you laborG2872 in vain.G1500
Brothers,G80 I beseechG1189 you, be as I am; for I am as you are: you have not injuredG91 me atG3762 all.G3762
You knowG1492 howG3754 throughG1223 infirmityG769 of the fleshG4561 I preachedG2097 the gospelG2097 to you at the first.G4386
And my temptationG3986 which was in my fleshG4561 you despisedG1848 not, norG3761 rejected;G1609 but receivedG1209 me as an angelG32 of God,G2316 even as ChristG5547 Jesus.G2424
WhereG5101 is thenG3767 the blessednessG3108 you spoke of? for I bearG3140 you record,G3140 that, ifG1487 it had been possible,G1415 you would have pluckedG1846 out yourG5216 own eyes,G3788 and have givenG1325 them to me.
Am I thereforeG5620 becomeG1096 yourG5216 enemy,G2190 because I tellG226 you the truth?G226
They zealouslyG2206 affectG2206 you, but not well;G2573 yes,G235 they wouldG2309 excludeG1576 you, that you might affectG2206 them.
But it is goodG2570 to be zealouslyG2206 affectedG2206 alwaysG3842 in a goodG2570 thing, and not onlyG3440 whenG1722 G3588 I am presentG3918 with you.
My littleG5040 children,G5040 of whomG3739 I travailG5605 in birthG5605 againG3825 untilG891 ChristG5547 be formedG3445 in you,
I desireG2309 to be presentG3918 with you now,G737 and to changeG236 my voice;G5456 for I standG639 in doubtG639 of you.
TellG3004 me, you that desireG2309 to be underG5259 the law,G3551 do you not hearG191 the law?G3551
For it is written,G1125 that AbrahamG11 hadG2192 twoG1417 sons,G5207 the oneG1520 by a female slave,G3814 the otherG1520 by a free woman.G1658
But he who was of the female slaveG3814 was bornG1080 afterG2596 the flesh;G4561 but he of the free womanG1658 was by promise.G1860
WhichG3748 things are an allegory:G238 for theseG3778 are the twoG1417 covenants;G1242 the oneG3391 from the mountG3735 Sinai,G4614 which engendersG1080 to bondage,G1397 whichG3748 is Agar.G28
For thisG3588 AgarG28 is mountG3735 SinaiG4614 in Arabia,G688 and answersG4960 to JerusalemG2419 whichG3588 nowG3568 is, and is in bondageG1398 with her children.G5043
But JerusalemG2419 which is aboveG507 is free,G1658 whichG3748 is the motherG3384 of us all.G3956
For it is written,G1125 Rejoice,G2165 you barrenG4723 that boreG5088 not; breakG4486 forthG4486 and cry,G994 you that travailG5605 not: for the desolateG2048 has manyG4183 moreG3123 childrenG5043 thanG2228 she which hasG2192 an husband.G435
NowG1161 we, brothers,G80 as IsaacG2464 was, are the childrenG5043 of promise.G1860
But as thenG5119 he that was bornG1080 afterG2596 the fleshG4561 persecutedG1377 him that was born afterG2596 the Spirit,G4151 evenG2532 soG3779 it is now.G3568
NeverthelessG235 whatG5101 saidG3004 the scripture?G1124 CastG1544 out the female slaveG3814 and her son:G5207 for the sonG5207 of the female slaveG3814 shall not be heirG2816 with the sonG5207 of the free woman.G1658
SoG686 then,G686 brothers,G80 we are not childrenG5043 of the female slave,G3814 but of the free.G1658
