(APB) Galatians 4 : 1 I say that as long as the heir is a child, he is not distinct from the Servants, though he is Master over all of them;
(APB) Galatians 4 : 2 But he is under guardians and stewards until the time that his father has appointed.
(APB) Galatians 4 : 3 In this way also when we were children, we were enslaved under the principles of the world.
(APB) Galatians 4 : 4 But when the end of time arrived, God sent his Son and he was from a woman and was under The Written Law,
(APB) Galatians 4 : 5 That he would redeem those who were under The Written Law, and that we would receive the position of children.
(APB) Galatians 4 : 6 But because you are children, God has sent The Spirit of his Son into your hearts, who cries, "Father, our Father”.
(APB) Galatians 4 : 7 And therefore you are not Servants but children, and if children, also the heirs of God by Yeshua The Messiah.
(APB) Galatians 4 : 8 For then when you had not known God, you served those which by their nature were not gods.
(APB) Galatians 4 : 9 But now that you have known God and especially that you are known by God, you have turned again to those sick and weak principles, and you wish again to be subject to them.
(APB) Galatians 4 : 10 You observe days and months and times and years.
(APB) Galatians 4 : 11 I fear lest I have labored among you for nothing.
(APB) Galatians 4 : 12 Be like me because I also have been like you, my brethren, I beg of you. You have wronged me in nothing,
(APB) Galatians 4 : 13 For you know that in the illness of my flesh from the first I have preached The Good News to you.
(APB) Galatians 4 : 14 And you did not ridicule, neither did you loathe the trial of my flesh, but you received me as an Angel of God and as Yeshua The Messiah.
(APB) Galatians 4 : 15 Where is therefore your blessedness, for I testify of you that if it were possible, you would have plucked out and given your eyes to me?
(APB) Galatians 4 : 16 Have I become an enemy to you because I have preached the truth to you?
(APB) Galatians 4 : 17 They imitate you, not for what is excellent but because they want to oppress you that you would imitate them.
(APB) Galatians 4 : 18 But it is good that you would imitate excellence always, and not only when I am with you.
(APB) Galatians 4 : 19 My children, those for whom I am in labor again until The Messiah shall be formed in you,
(APB) Galatians 4 : 20 I wish to be with you now and to change my tone, because I am dumbfounded at you.
(APB) Galatians 4 : 21 Tell me, you who wish to be under The Written Law, do you not hear The Written Law?
(APB) Galatians 4 : 22 For it is written: "Abraham had two sons, one from a Maidservant and one from a Freewoman.”
(APB) Galatians 4 : 23 But he who was from the Maidservant was born of the flesh, but he who was from the Freewoman was by The Promise.
(APB) Galatians 4 : 24 But these are illustrations of the two Covenants, the one that is from Mount Sinai begets to bondage, which is Hagar.
(APB) Galatians 4 : 25 For Hagar is Mount Sinai that is in Arabia, and agrees with this Jerusalem and is serving in bondage and its children.
(APB) Galatians 4 : 26 But that Jerusalem above is free, which is our mother.
(APB) Galatians 4 : 27 For it is written: "Rejoice, barren one, she who does not bear, triumph and shout, she who does not give birth, because the children of the desolate have increased more than the children of a wife.”
(APB) Galatians 4 : 28 But we, my brethren, are children of The Promise like Isaac.
(APB) Galatians 4 : 29 And as then, he who was born by the flesh did persecute him who was of the Spirit, so it is now also.
(APB) Galatians 4 : 30 But what do the Scriptures say? Cast out the Maidservant and her son because the son of the Maidservant will not inherit with the son of the Freewoman.
(APB) Galatians 4 : 31 We therefore, my brethren, are not children of the Maidservant, but children of the Freewoman. Galatians
