3 In the same way we also, when we were children, 1were enslaved to the elementary principlesa of the world.
4 But 2when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, 3born 4of woman, born 5under the law,
5 6to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive 7adoption as sons.
6 And because you are sons, God has sent 8the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, "Abba! Father!"
7 So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then 9an heir through God.

Paul's Concern for the Galatians

8 Formerly, when you 10did not know God, you 11were enslaved to those that by nature 12are not gods.
