King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
6 And because ye are sons, God hath 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."
7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. 7 So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God has made you also an heir.
8 Howbeit then , when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods. 8 Formerly, when you did not know God, you were slaves to those who by nature are not gods.
9 But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage ? 9 But now that you know God--or rather are known by God--how is it that you are turning back to those weak and miserable principles? Do you wish to be enslaved by them all over again?
