World English Bible (WEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 But I say that so long as the heir is a child, he is no different from a bondservant, though he is lord of all; 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.
2 but is under guardians and stewards until the day appointed by the father. 2 He is subject to guardians and trustees until the time set by his father.
3 So we also, when we were children, were held in bondage under the elements of the world. 3 So also, when we were children, we were in slavery under the basic principles of the world.
4 But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth his Son, born to a woman, born under the law, 4 But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under law,
5 that he might redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. 5 to redeem those under law, that we might receive the full rights of sons.
6 And because you are sons, God sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, "Abba, Father!" 6 Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, ""Abba", Father."
