|New Living Translation (NLT)
||New International Version (NIV)
23 Until faith in Christ was shown to us as the way of becoming right with God, we were guarded by the law. We were kept in protective custody, so to speak, until we could put our faith in the coming Savior.
23 Before this faith came, we were held prisoners by the law, locked up until faith should be revealed.
