Book 48 : GALATIANS - Chapter 004


But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father


Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world


But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law


To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons


And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father


Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ


Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods


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


Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years


I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain


Brethren, I beseech you, be as I am; for I am as ye are: ye have not injured me at all


Ye know how through infirmity of the flesh I preached the gospel unto you at the first


And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected; but received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus


Where is then the blessedness ye spake of? for I bear you record, that, if it had been possible, ye would have plucked out your own eyes, and have given them to me


Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth


They zealously affect you, but not well; yea, they would exclude you, that ye might affect them


But it is good to be zealously affected always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you


My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you


I desire to be present with you now, and to change my voice; for I stand in doubt of you


Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law


For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman


But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise


Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar


For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children


But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all


For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband


Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise


But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now


Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman


So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free
