Galatians 4:4-14 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
4 But when 1the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, 2born of a woman, born 3under athe Law, 5 so that He might redeem those who were under bthe Law, that we might receive the adoption as 4sons. 6 Because you are sons, 5God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, "6Abba! Father!" 7 Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and 7if a son, then an heir cthrough God. 8 However at that time, 8when you did not know God, you were 9slaves to 10those which by nature are no gods. 9 But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be 11known by God, 12how is it that you turn back again to the weak and worthless d13elemental things, to which you desire to be enslaved all over again? 10 You 14observe days and months and seasons and years. 11 I fear for you, that perhaps I have labored eover you in vain. 12 I beg of you, 15brethren, 16become as I am, for I also have become as you are. You have done me no wrong; 13 but you know that it was because of a fbodily illness that I preached the gospel to you the gfirst time; 14 and that which was a htrial to you in my ibodily condition you did not despise or jloathe, but 17you received me as an angel of God, as 18Christ Jesus Himself.
