Galatians 4:7-17 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
7 Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and 1if a son, then an heir athrough God. 8 However at that time, 2when you did not know God, you were 3slaves to 4those which by nature are no gods. 9 But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be 5known by God, 6how is it that you turn back again to the weak and worthless b7elemental things, to which you desire to be enslaved all over again? 10 You 8observe days and months and seasons and years. 11 I fear for you, that perhaps I have labored cover you in vain. 12 I beg of you, 9brethren, 10become 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 dbodily illness that I preached the gospel to you the efirst time; 14 and that which was a ftrial to you in my gbodily condition you did not despise or hloathe, but 11you received me as an angel of God, as 12Christ Jesus Himself. 15 Where then is ithat sense of blessing you had? For I bear you witness that, if possible, you would have plucked out your eyes and given them to me. 16 So have I become your enemy 13by jtelling you the truth? 17 They eagerly seek you, not commendably, but they wish to shut you out so that you will seek them.
