Galatians 4:22-30 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
22 For it is written that Abraham had two sons, 1one by the bondwoman and 2one by the free woman. 23 But 3the son by the bondwoman awas born according to the flesh, and 4the son by the free woman through the promise. 24 b5This is allegorically speaking, for these women are two covenants: one proceeding from 6Mount Sinai bearing children cwho are to be 7slaves; dshe is Hagar. 25 Now this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia and corresponds to the present Jerusalem, for she is in slavery with her children. 26 But 8the Jerusalem above is free; eshe is our mother. 27 For it is written, "9REJOICE, BARREN WOMAN WHO DOES NOT BEAR; BREAK FORTH AND SHOUT, YOU WHO ARE NOT IN LABOR; FOR MORE NUMEROUS ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE DESOLATE THAN OF THE ONE WHO HAS A HUSBAND." 28 And you brethren, 10like Isaac, are 11children of promise. 29 But as at that time 12he who was born according to the flesh 13persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, 14so it is now also. 30 But what does the Scripture say? "15CAST OUT THE BONDWOMAN AND HER SON, FOR 16THE SON OF THE BONDWOMAN SHALL NOT BE AN HEIR WITH THE SON OF THE FREE WOMAN."
