Galatians 4:16-26 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
16 So have I become your enemy 1by atelling you the truth ? 17 They eagerly seek you, not commendably, but they wish to shut you out so that you will seek them. 18 But it is good always to be eagerly sought in a commendable bmanner, and 2not only when I am present with you. 19 3My children, with whom 4I am again in labor until 5Christ is formed in you- 20 but I could wish to be present with you now and to change my tone, for 6I am perplexed about you.

Bond and Free

21 Tell me, you who want to be under law, do you not 7listen to the law ? 22 For it is written that Abraham had two sons, 8one by the bondwoman and 9one by the free woman. 23 But 10the son by the bondwoman cwas born according to the flesh, and 11the son by the free woman through the promise. 24 d12This is allegorically speaking, for these women are two covenants : one proceeding from 13Mount Sinai bearing children ewho are to be 14slaves ; fshe 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 15the Jerusalem above is free ; gshe is our mother.
