|New Living Translation (NLT)
||New International Version (NIV)
1 Think of it this way. If a father dies and leaves great wealth for his young children, those children are not much better off than slaves until they grow up, even though they actually own everything their father had.
1 What I am saying is that as long as the heir is a child, he is no different from a slave, although he owns the whole estate.
