2 but he is under guardians and 1managers until the date set by the father.
9 But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be aknown by God, bhow is it that you turn back again to the weak and worthless 1celemental things, to which you desire to be enslaved all over again?
10 You aobserve days and months and seasons and years.
11 I fear for you, that perhaps I have labored 1over you in vain.
15 Where then is 1that sense of blessing you had? For I bear you witness that, if possible, you would have plucked out your eyes and given them to me.
20 but I could wish to be present with you now and to change my tone, for aI am perplexed about you.
21 Tell me, you who want to be under law, do you not alisten to the law?
“aRejoice, barren woman who does not bear;
Break forth and shout, you who are not in labor;
For more numerous are the children of the desolate
Than of the one who has a husband.”
“aCast out the bondwoman and her son,
For bthe son of the bondwoman shall not be an heir with the son of the free woman.”
31 So then, brethren, we are not children of a bondwoman, 1but of the free woman.
About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update
The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
