1:7 7 which is not another, but that there be some that trouble you, and will mis-turn the evangel of Christ. 7 which is nothing else, but that there be some which trouble you, and intend to pervert the gospel [gospell] of Christ. 7 Which is not another Gospel, save that there be some which trouble you, and intend to pervert the Gospel of Christ. 7 Which is not another; but there are some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
1:8 8 But though we, or an angel of heaven, preached to you, besides that that we have preached to you, be he accursed. [But though we, or an angel of heaven, evangelize to you, besides that that we have evangelized to you, cursed be he.] 8 Nevertheless though we ourselves, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel [gospell] unto you than that which we have preached unto you, hold him as accursed. {the same be accursed} 8 But though that we, or an Angel from heaven preach unto you otherwise, than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach any other gospel to you than that which we have preached to you, let him be accursed.

If I studied to please men, I were not the servant of Christ. 10 For now preach I man's doctrine, or God's? or go I about to please men? for if I should yet please men, I were not the servant of Christ. 10 For do I now seek the favour of men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

1:13 13 For ye have heard my conversation sometime in the Jewry, that I pursued surpassingly the church of God [for over manner, or measure, I pursued the church of God] , and fought against it. 13 [For] Ye have heard of my conversation in times past in the jews' ways, how that beyond measure I persecuted the congregation of God, and spoiled it: 13 For ye have heard of my conversation in time past, in the Jewish religion, how that I persecuted the Church of God extremely, and wasted it, 13 For ye have heard of my former manner of life in time past in the Jews' religion, that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it:

2:7 7 But on the contrary, when they had seen, that the evangel of [the] prepuce was given to me, as the evangel of circumcision was given to Peter [that the gospel of prepuce, or of heathen men, was taken to me, as and of circumcision to Peter] ; 7 But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel [gospell] over the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel [gospell] over circumcision was unto Peter 7 But contrariwise, when they saw that the Gospel over the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the Gospel over the circumcision was unto Peter: 7 But on the contrary, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed to me, as the gospel of the circumcision was to Peter;

2:10 10 only that we had mind of poor men [only that we should be mindful of poor men] , the which thing I was full busy to do. 10 warning only that we should remember the poor, which thing also I was diligent to do. 10 Warning only that we should remember the poor: which thing also I was diligent to do. 10 Only they would that we should remember the poor; the same which I also was diligent to do.
2:11 11 But when Peter was come to Antioch, I against-stood him in the face [I stood against him into the face] , for he was worthy to be reproved. 11 [And] When Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him in the face, for he was worthy to be blamed. 11 And when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to his face: for he was to be condemned. [blamed.] 11 But when Peter had come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed.
2:12 12 For before that there came some men from James [Forsooth before that some came from James] , he ate with heathen men; but when they were come, he withdrew, and separated him(self ) [and parted him] , dreading them that were of circumcision. 12 For yer that certain came {afore there came certain} from James, he ate with the gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision, 12 For before that certain came from James, he ate with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the Circumcision. 12 For before that certain came from James, he used to eat with the Gentiles: but when they had come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them who were of the circumcision.
2:13 13 And the other Jews assented to his feigning [And other Jews consented to his feigning] , so that Barnabas was drawn of them into that feigning. 13 and the other jews dissembled likewise; Insomuch that Barnabas was brought into their simulation also. 13 And the other Jews played the hypocrites [dissembled] likewise with him, in so much that Barnabas was led away with them by that their hypocrisy. [was brought into their dissimulation also.] 13 And the other Jews likewise were hypocrites with him; so that Barnabas also was carried away with their hypocrisy.
2:14 14 But when I saw, that they walked not rightly to the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter before all men, If thou, that art a Jew, livest heathen-like, and not Jew-like, how constrainest thou heathen men to become Jews? 14 But when I saw that they went {walked} not the right way after the truth of the gospel, [gospell] I said unto Peter, before all men, {openly before all:} if thou being a jew, livest after the manner of the gentiles, and not as do the jews: why causest thou the gentiles to follow [live as do] the jews? 14 But when I saw, that they [they that] went not the right way to the truth of the Gospel, I said unto Peter before all men, If thou [you] being a Jew, livest as the Gentiles, and not like the Jews, why constrainest thou the Gentiles to do like the Jews? 14 But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?
2:15 15 We Jews of kind, and not sinful men of the heathen, [We be Jews of kind, and not sinners of heathen men,] 15 we which are jews by nature and not sinners of the gentiles, 15 We which are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles, 15 We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles,
2:16 16 know that a man [soothly knowing for a man] is not justified of the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ; and we believe in Jesus Christ, that we be justified of the faith of Christ [that we be justified by the faith of Christ] , and not of the works of the law. Wherefore of the works of the law each flesh shall not be justified. 16 know that a man is not justified {made righteous} by the deeds of the law: but by the faith of Jesus Christ: and [therefore] we have believed on Jesus Christ, that we might be justified {made righteous} by the faith of Christ and not by the deeds of the law: because that no flesh shall be justified by the deeds of the law: 16 Know that a man is not justified by the works of the Law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we, I say, have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the Law, because that by the works of the Law, no flesh shall be justified. 16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we may be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
2:17 17 And if we seek to be justified in Christ, we ourselves be found sinful men, whether Christ be minister of sin? God forbid. [That if we seeking to be justified in Christ, and we ourselves be found sinners, whether Christ is minister of sin? Far be it.] 17 If then while we seek to be made righteous by Christ, we ourselves are found sinners, is not then Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. 17 If then while we seek to be made righteous by Christ, we ourselves are found sinners, is Christ therefore the minister of sin? God forbid. 17 But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? By no means.
2:18 18 And if I build again things that I have destroyed [Soothly if I build again those things that I destroyed] , I make myself a trespasser. 18 For if I build again that which I destroyed, then make I my self a trespasser. 18 For if I build again the things that I have destroyed, I make myself a trespasser. 18 For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor.
2:19 19 For by the law I am dead to the law, [For by the law I am dead to the law, that I live to God;] 19 But I thorow the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. 19 For I through the Law am dead to the Law, that I might live unto God. 19 For I through the law am dead to the law, that I may live to God.
2:20 20 and I am fixed to the cross, that I live to God with Christ. And now live not I, but Christ liveth in me. But that I live now in flesh, I live in the faith of God's Son, that loved me, and gave himself for me. [with Christ I am fixed to the cross. Forsooth I live now, not I, but Christ liveth in me. Forsooth that I live now in flesh, I live in the faith of Godís Son, which loved me, and betook himself for me.] 20 I am crucified with Christ. I live verily, yet now not I, but Christ liveth in me. [For] The life which I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the son of God, which loved me, and gave himself for me. 20 I am crucified with Christ, but I live, yet not I anymore, but Christ liveth in me: and in that I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith in the Son of God, who hath loved me, and given himself for me. 20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
2:21 21 I cast not away the grace of God; for if rightwiseness be through law [for if rightwiseness is by the law] , then Christ died without cause. 21 I despise not {cast not away} the grace of God: For if righteousness come of the law, then is Christ dead [died] in vain. 21 I do not abrogate the grace of God: for if righteousness be by the Law, then Christ died without a cause. 21 I do not set aside the grace of God: for if righteousness is gained by the law, then Christ hath died in vain.
3:1 1 O! unwitty Galatians, before whose eyes Jesus Christ is exiled, and is crucified in you, who hath deceived you, that ye obey not to truth? [+O! ye witless men of Galatia, who deceived you to obey not to the truth? before whose eyes Jesus Christ is condemned, or exiled, and in you crucified.] 1 O foolish Galatians: who hath bewitched you, that ye should not believe the truth? to whom Jesus Christ was described before the eyes, and among you crucified? 1 O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, to whom Jesus Christ before was described in your sight, and among you crucified? 1 O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been clearly set forth, crucified among you?
3:2 2 This only I desire to learn of you, whether ye have received the Spirit of the works of the law, or of hearing of belief? [+This thing only will I learn of you, have ye taken the Spirit by the works of the law, by the hearing of belief/or of the hearing of belief?] 2 This only would I learn of you, received ye the spirit by the deeds of the law? or else by preaching of the faith? 2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the Law, or by the hearing of faith preached? 2 This only would I learn from you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
3:3 3 So ye be fools, that when ye have begun in Spirit, ye be ended in flesh [now ye be ended by flesh] . 3 Are ye so unwise, that after ye have begun in the spirit, ye would now end in the flesh? 3 Are ye so foolish, that after ye have begun in the Spirit, ye would now be made perfect by the flesh? 3 Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?
3:4 4 So great things ye have suffered without cause [Ye have suffered so many things without cause] , if it be without cause. 4 So many things [there] ye have suffered in vain. If it be so that ye have suffered in vain. [,if that be in vain.] 4 Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if so be it be even in vain. 4 Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it is yet in vain. [so many: or, so great]
3:5 5 [Therefore] He that giveth to you [the] Spirit, and worketh works of power in you, whether of [the] works of the law, or of hearing of belief [or of hearing of faith] ? 5 Which ministered to {He that giveth} you the spirit, and worketh miracles {doth such great acts} among you doth he it thorow the deeds of the law? or by preaching of the faith? 5 He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it through the works of the Law, or by the hearing of faith preached? 5 He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he this by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
3:6 6 As it is written, Abraham believed to God, and it was reckoned to him to rightwiseness. 6 Even as Abraham believed God, and it was ascribed to him for righteousness. 6 Yea rather as Abraham believed God, and it was imputed to him for righteousness. 6 Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. [accounted: or, imputed]
3:7 7 And therefore know ye, that these that be of belief, be the sons of Abraham. [+Therefore know ye, that they that be of faith, they be the sons of Abraham.] 7 Understand therefore, {Thus ye know} that they which are of faith, [the same] are the children of Abraham. 7 Know ye therefore, that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. 7 Know ye therefore that they who are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.
3:8 8 And the scripture seeing afar, that God justifieth the heathen of belief, told before to Abraham, That in thee all the heathen shall be blessed [for God justifieth of faith heathen men, told before to Abraham, For in thee all folks, or heathen men, shall be blessed] . 8 [For] The scripture saw aforehand, that God would justify the heathen thorow faith, and [therefore] shewed beforehand glad tidings unto Abraham: In thee shall all nations be blessed. 8 For the Scripture, foreseeing, that God would justify the Gentiles through faith, preached before the Gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all the Gentiles be blessed. 8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles through faith, preached before the gospel to Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.
3:9 9 And therefore these that be of belief [Therefore they that be of faith] , shall be blessed with faithful Abraham. 9 So then they which be of faith, are blessed with faithful Abraham. 9 So then they which be of faith, are blessed with faithful Abraham. 9 So then they who are of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.
3:10 10 For all that be of the works of the law, be under curse; for it is written, Each man is cursed, that abideth not in all things that be written in the book of the law, to do those things. [+Forsooth whoever be of the works of the law, be under curse; for it is written, Cursed is each man, that dwelleth not in all things that be written in the book of the law, that he do them.] 10 For as many as are under the deeds {as go about with the works} of the law, are under malediction. {curse} For it is written: cursed is every man that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to fulfil {do} them. 10 For as many as are of the works of the Law, are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every man that continueth not in all things, which are written in the book of the Law, to do them. 10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.
3:11 11 And that no man is justified in the law before God, it is open, for a rightful man liveth of belief. [Forsooth for no man is justified in the law with God, it is known, for a rightful man liveth by faith.] 11 That no man is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident. For the just shall live by faith. 11 And that no man is justified by the Law in the sight of God, it is evident: for the just shall live by faith. 11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.
3:12 12 But the law is not of belief, but he that doeth those things of the law [but he that doeth those things] , shall live in them. 12 The law is not of faith: but the man that fulfilleth the things contained in the law, shall live in them. {but the man that doth the same, shall live therein} 12 And the Law is not of faith: but the man that shall do those things, shall live in them. 12 And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live by them.
3:13 13 But Christ again-bought us from the curse of the law, and was made accursed for us; for it is written, Each man is cursed that hangeth in the tree; [+Christ delivered us from the curse of the law, made for us the curse; for it is written, Cursed is each that hangeth in the tree;] 13 [But] Christ hath delivered us from the curse of the law, and was made a cursed for us (for it is written: Cursed is everyone that hangeth on tree) 13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the Law, when he was made a curse for us, (for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on tree) 13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
3:14 14 that among the heathen the blessing of Abraham were made in Jesus Christ, that we receive the promise of Spirit through belief. [that the blessing of Abraham in heathen men should be made in Christ Jesus, that we take the promise of Spirit by faith.] 14 that the blessing of Abraham might come on the gentiles thorow Jesus Christ, [and] that we might receive the promise of the spirit thorow faith. 14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. 14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
3:15 15 Brethren, I say after man, no man despiseth the testament of a man that is confirmed, or ordaineth above [or above-ordaineth other thing] . 15 Brethren I will speak after the manner of men. Though it be but a man's testament, yet no man despiseth it, or addeth any thing thereto when it is once allowed. {confrimed} 15 Brethren, I speak as men do: though it be but a man's covenant, when it is confirmed, yet no man doeth abrogate it, or addeth anything thereto. 15 Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it is but a man's covenant, yet if it is confirmed, no man setteth it aside, or addeth to it. [covenant: or, testament]
3:16 16 The promises were said to Abraham and to his seed; he saith not, In [the] seeds, as in many, but as in one, And to thy seed, that is, Christ. 16 To Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith [seyth] not, in thy [the] seeds as in many: But in thy seed, as in one, which is Christ. 16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to the seeds, as speaking of many: but, And to thy seed, as of one, which is Christ. 16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.
3:17 17 But I say, this testament is confirmed of God; the law that was made after four hundred and thirty years, maketh not the testament vain to void away the promise. [+Forsooth I say this, a testament confirmed of God, which after four hundred years and thirty is made law, maketh not void for to do away the promise.] 17 This I say that the law which began afterward, beyond four hundred and thirty years, doth not disannul the testament, that was confirmed [afore] of God unto Christ ward, to make the promise of none effect. 17 And this I say, that the covenant that was confirmed afore of God in respect of Christ, the Law which was four hundred and thirty years after, can not disannul, [the Law which was four hundred and thirty years after, can not disannul the covenant that was confirmed afore of God in respect of Christ, ] that it should make the promise of none effect. 17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before by God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot set it aside, that it should make the promise of no effect.
3:18 18 For if [the] heritage were of the law, it were not now of promise. But God granted to Abraham through promise [Forsooth God gave to Abraham by again-promise] . 18 For if the inheritance come of the law, it cometh not of promise: but God gave it unto Abraham by promise. 18 For if the inheritance be of the Law, it is no more by the promise, but God gave it freely unto Abraham by promise. 18 For if the inheritance is by the law, it is no more by promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.
3:19 19 What then the law [What therefore profiteth the law] ? It was set for trespassing, till the seed came, to whom he had made the promise. Which law was ordained by angels, in the hand of a mediator. 19 Wherefore then serveth the law? The law was added because of transgression (till the seed came to which the promise was made) and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator. {given of angels, by the hand of the mediatour} 19 Wherefore then serveth the Law? It was added because of the transgressions, til the seed came, unto them which the promise was made: and it was ordained by Angels in the hand of a Mediator. 19 What purpose then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.
3:20 20 But a mediator is not of one. But God is one. 20 A mediator is not a mediator of one. {of one only} But God is one. 20 Now a Mediator is not a Mediator of one: but God is one. 20 Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one.
3:21 21 Is then the law against the promises of God? God forbid [Far be it] . For if the law were given, that might quicken, verily were rightwiseness of law [For if there were a law given, which might quicken, verily rightwiseness were of law] . 21 Is the law then against the promise of God? God forbid. [Howbeit] If there had been a law given which could have given life: then no doubt righteousness should have come by the law: 21 Is the Law then against the promises [promise] of God? God forbid: For if there had been a Law given which could have given life, surely righteousness should have been by the Law. 21 Is the law then against the promises of God? By no means: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.
3:22 22 But the scripture hath concluded all things under sin, that the promise of the faith [of faith] of Jesus Christ were given to them that believe. 22 but the scripture concluded all things under sin, that the promise by the faith of Jesus Christ, should be given unto them that believe. 22 But the Scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by the faith of Jesus Christ should be given to them that believe. 22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.
3:23 23 And before that belief came, they were kept under the law, enclosed into that belief that was to be showed. [Forsooth before that the faith came, we were kept under the law, shut together into that faith that was to be showed.] 23 Before that faith came, we were kept and shut up under the law, unto the faith which should afterward be declared. 23 But before faith came, we were kept under the Law, as under a garrison, and shut up unto that faith, which should afterward be revealed. 23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up to the faith which should afterwards be revealed.
3:24 24 And so the law was our under-master in Christ, that we be justified of belief. [+Therefore the law was our little master in Christ, that we be justified of faith.] 24 Wherefore {Thus} the law was our schoolmaster unto the time of Christ, that we might be made righteous by faith. 24 Wherefore the Law was our schoolmaster to bring us to Christ, that we might be made righteous by faith. 24 Therefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
3:25 25 But after that belief came [But after that the faith came] , we be not now under the under-master. 25 But after that faith is come, now are we no longer under a schoolmaster. {no more under the schoolmaster} 25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. 25 But after faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
3:26 26 For all ye be the children of God through the belief of Jesus Christ. [For all ye be the sons of God by faith in Christ Jesus.] 26 For ye are all the sons {children} of God, by the faith which is in Christ Jesus. 26 For ye are all the sons of God by faith, in Christ Jesus. 26 For ye are all children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
3:27 27 For all ye that be baptized, be clothed with Christ. [Forsooth whoever ye be baptized in Christ, ye have clothed in Christ.] 27 For all ye that {For as many of you as} are baptised, have put Christ on you. [put on Christ.] 27 For all ye that are baptized into Christ, have put on Christ. 27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
3:28 28 There is no Jew, nor Greek, no bondman, nor free man, no male, nor female [There is not Jew, neither Greek; there is not servant, neither free man; there is not male, neither female] ; for all ye be one in Christ Jesus. 28 Now is there no jew, neither greek: [is ther no Iewe nether gentile:] there is neither [nether] bond, neither [ner] free: there is neither man, neither [ner] woman: for all are one thing in Christ Jesu. [but ye are all one thing in Christ Iesu] 28 There is neither Jew nor Grecian: there is neither bond nor free: there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
3:29 29 And if ye be one in Jesus Christ, then ye be the seed of Abraham, and heirs by promise. [Forsooth if ye be of Christ, therefore ye be seed of Abraham, after the promise ye be heirs.] 29 If ye be Christ's, [Christes] then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs by promise. {according to the promise} 29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs by promise. 29 And if ye are Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
4:1 1 But I say, as long time as the heir is a little child, he diverseth nothing from a servant, when he is lord of all things [when he is lord of all] ; 1 And I say that the heir as long as he is a child differeth not from a servant, though he be lord of all, {all the goods} 1 Then I say, that the heir as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be Lord of all, 1 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he is lord of all;
4:2 2 but he is under keepers and tutors, into the time determined of the father. [+but he is under tutors and keepers, till to/unto the time determined of the father.] 2 but is under tutors and governors, until the time appointed of the father. 2 But is under tutors and governors, until the time appointed of the Father. 2 But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed by the father.
4:3 3 So we, when we were little children, we served under the elements of the world. [So and we, when we were little, were serving under the elements of the world.] 3 Even so we, as long as we were children, were in bondage under the ordinances of the world: {under the outward traditions} 3 Even so, we when we were children, were in bondage under the rudiments of the world. 3 Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: [elements: or, rudiments]
4:4 4 But after that the fulfilling of the time came, God sent his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, 4 But when the time was full come, {fulfilled} God sent his son born of a woman, and made bond unto {put under} the law, 4 But when the fullness of time was come, God sent forth his Son made of a woman, and made under the Law, 4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the law,
4:5 5 that he should again-buy them that were under the law, that we should receive the adoption of sons. 5 to redeem them which were under the law: that we thorow election should [might] receive the inheritance that belongeth unto the natural sons. 5 That he might redeem them which were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption of the sons. 5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
4:6 6 And for ye be God's sons, God sent his Spirit into your hearts [God sent the Spirit of his Son into your hearts] , crying, Abba, Father. 6 Because ye are sons, {children} God hath sent the spirit of his son into our hearts, which crieth Abba father. {dear father} 6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, which crieth, Abba, Father. 6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
4:7 7 And so there is not now a servant, but a son; and if he is a son, he is an heir by God. [Therefore now there is not servant, but son; that if son, then and heir by God.] 7 Wherefore now art thou not a servant, but a son. If thou be the son, thou art also the heir of God thorow Christ. 7 Wherefore, thou art no more a servant, but a son: now if thou be a son, thou art also the heir of God through Christ. 7 Therefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
4:8 8 But then ye not knowing God [But then soothly ye unknowing God] , served to them that in kind were not gods. 8 Notwithstanding, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them, which by nature were not [no] goddes: 8 But even then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them, which by nature are not gods: 8 However then, when ye knew not God, ye did service to them which by nature are no gods.
4:9 9 But now when ye have known God, and be known of God, how be ye turned again to the feeble and needy elements, to the which ye will again serve? [Now forsooth when ye have known God, yea, rather ye be known of God, how be ye turned together again to sick, or frail, and needy elements, to which ye will serve again?] 9 But now seeing ye know God (yea rather are known of God) how is it that ye turn again unto the weak and beggarly ceremonies, {traditions} whereunto again ye desire afresh to be in bondage? 9 But now seeing ye know God, yea, rather are known of God, how turn ye again unto impotent and beggarly rudiments, whereunto as from the beginning ye will be in bondage again? 9 But now, after ye have known God, or rather are known by God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which ye desire again to be in bondage? [turn ye again: or, turn ye back] [elements: or, rudiments]
4:10 10 Ye take keep to days [Ye keep, or wait (on), days] , and months, and times, and years. 10 Ye observe the days, and months, and times, and years. 10 Ye observe days, and months, and times and years. 10 Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years.
4:11 11 But I dread you, lest without cause I have travailed among you [lest peradventure I have travailed in you without cause] . 11 I [am in] fear of you, lest I have bestowed on you labour in vain. 11 I am in fear of you, lest I have bestowed on you labor in vain. 11 I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain.
4:12 12 Be ye as I, for I am as ye. Brethren, I beseech you, ye have hurt me nothing [ye have nothing hurt me] . 12 Brethren I beseech you, be ye as I am: for I am as ye are. Ye have not hurt me. [at all] 12 Be ye as I (for I am even as you) brethren, I beseech you: ye have not hurt me at all. 12 Brethren, I beseech you, be as I am; for I am as ye are: ye have not injured me at all.
4:13 13 But ye know, that by infirmity of flesh I have preached to you [I have evangelized to you] now before; 13 Ye know well how that thorow infirmity of {in weakness after} the flesh, I preached the gospel [gospell] unto you at the first: 13 And ye know, how through infirmity of the flesh, I preached the Gospel unto you at the first. 13 Ye know that in infirmity of the flesh I preached the gospel to you at the first.
4:14 14 and ye despised not, neither forsook your temptation in my flesh [and your temptation in my flesh ye despised not, neither forsook] , but ye received me as an angel of God, as Christ Jesus. 14 and my temptation which I suffered by reason of my flesh, ye despised not, neither abhorred: but received me as an angel of God: yea as {yea even as} Christ Jesus. 14 And the trial of me which was in my flesh, ye despised not, neither abhorred: but ye received me as an Angel of God, yea, as Christ Jesus. 14 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.
4:15 15 Where then is your blessing [Where is therefore your blessedness, that ye had before time] ? For I bear you witness, that if it might have been done, ye would have put out your eyes, and have given them to me. 15 How happy were ye then? for I bear you record that if it had been possible, ye would have digged [plucked] out your own eyes, and have given them to me. 15 What was then your felicity? for I bear you record, that if it had been possible, ye would have plucked out your own eyes, and have given them unto [to] me. 15 What then was the blessedness ye spoke of? for I bear you witness, that, if it had been possible, ye would have plucked out your own eyes, and have given them to me. [Where...: or, What was then]
4:16 16 Am I then made an enemy to you, saying to you the sooth? [Therefore am I made enemy to you, saying true thing to you?] 16 Am I so greatly [therefore] become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? 16 Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? 16 Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?
4:17 17 They love not you well [They love you not well] , but they will exclude you, that ye follow them. 17 They are jealous over you amiss. Yea they intend to exclude you {they would make you to fall back} that ye should {might} be fervent to them ward. 17 They are jealous over you amiss: yea, they would exclude you, that ye should altogether love them. 17 They zealously seek you, but not for good; for, they would exclude you, that ye may seek them. [exclude you: or, exclude us]
4:18 18 But follow ye the good evermore in good, and not only when I am present with you. 18 It is good always to be fervent, so it be {so that it be alway} in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you. 18 But it is a good thing to love earnestly always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you, 18 But it is good to be zealously sought always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you.
4:19 19 My small children, which I bear again, till that Christ be formed in you, [My little sons, whom I child, or bring forth by travail, again, till Christ be formed in you,] 19 My little children (of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be fashioned in you) 19 My little children, of whom I travail in birth again, until Christ be formed in you. 19 My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you,
4:20 20 and I would now be at you, and change my voice, for I am confounded among you [for I am confounded, or shamed, in you] . 20 I would I were with you now, and could change my voice, for I stand in a doubt of you. 20 And I would I were with you now, that I might change my voice: for I am in doubt of you. 20 I desire to be present with you now, and to change my tone; for I stand in doubt of you. [I stand...: or, I am perplexed for you]
4:21 21 Say to me, ye that will be under the law, have ye not read the law? 21 Tell me ye that desire to be {wylbe} under the law: have ye not heard of the law? 21 Tell me, ye that will [would] be under the Law, do ye not hear the Law? 21 Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?
4:22 22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, one of a servant, and one of a free woman [one of the handmaiden, and one of the free wife] . 22 For it is written that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a free woman. 22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, one by a servant, and one by a free woman. 22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondwoman, the other by a freewoman.
4:23 23 But he that was of the servant, was born after the flesh; but he that was of the free woman, by a promise. [+Forsooth he that was of the handmaiden/handmaid was born after the flesh; but he that was of the free wife, was born by promise.] 23 Yea and he which was of the bondwoman, was born after the flesh: but he which was of the freewoman, was born by promise. 23 But he which was of the servant, was born after the flesh: and he which was of the free woman, was born by promise. 23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born according to the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.
4:24 24 The which things be said by another understanding. For these be two testaments; one in the hill of Sinai, engendering into servage, which is Agar. [+Which things be said by allegory, or by another understanding. For why these things be two testaments; soothly the one in the mount Sinai, gendering into servage, that is Agar.] 24 Which things betoken mystery. {These words betonken somewhat} For these women are two testaments, the one from the mount Sina, which gendreth unto bondage, which is Agar. 24 By the which things another thing is meant: for these mothers are the two testaments, the one which is Hagar of mount Sinai, which gendereth unto bondage. 24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which beareth children for bondage, which is Hagar. [covenants: or, testaments] [Sinai: Gr. Sina]
4:25 25 For Sinai is an hill that is in Arabia, which hill is joined to it that is now Jerusalem, and serveth with her children. 25 (For mount Sinai is called Agar in Arabia, and bordereth upon {reacheth unto} the city which is now Jerusalem) and is in bondage with her children. 25 (For Hagar or Sinai is a mountain in Arabia, and it answereth to Jerusalem which now is) and she is in bondage with her children. 25 For this Hagar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. [answereth to: or, is in the same rank with]
4:26 26 But that Jerusalem that is above, is free, which is our mother. 26 But Jerusalem, which is above, is free: {the free woman} which is the mother of us all. 26 But Jerusalem, which is above, is free: which is the mother of us all. 26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.
4:27 27 For it is written, Be glad, thou barren, that bearest not; break out and cry, that bringest forth no children [break out and cry, thou that childest not] ; for many sons be of her that is left of her husband [for many sons be of the deserted, or left woman] , more than of her that hath an husband. 27 For it is written: rejoice thou barren, that bearest no children: break forth and cry, thou that travailest not. For the desolate hath many more children, than she which hath an husband. 27 For it is written, Rejoice thou barren that bearest no children: break forth, and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children, than she which hath an husband. 27 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 who hath an husband.
4:28 28 For, brethren, we be sons of promise after Isaac; [Forsooth, brethren, we be after Isaac the sons of promise;] 28 Brethren we are after the manner of Isaac children of promise: {As for us (brethren) we are the children of Isaac according to the promise} 28 Therefore, brethren, we are after the manner of Isaac, children of the promise. 28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.
4:29 29 but now as this that was born after the flesh pursued him that was after the Spirit, so now. [+but as then he that was born after the flesh pursued him that was born after the Spirit, so and now.] 29 But as then he that was born carnally, {after the flesh} persecuted him that was born spiritually; {after the spirit} Even so is it now. 29 But as then he that was born after the flesh, persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now. 29 But as then he that was born according to the flesh persecuted him that was born according to the Spirit, even so it is now.
4:30 30 But what saith the scripture? Cast out the servant and her son, for the son of the servant shall not be heir with the son of the free wife. [+But what saith the scripture? Cast out the handmaiden and her son, for the son of the handmaiden/handmaid shall not be heir with the son of the free wife.] 30 Nevertheless what saith the scripture: Cast [put] a way the bondwoman and her son. For the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the free woman. 30 But what saith the Scripture? Put out the servant and her son: for the son of the servant shall not be heir with the son of the free woman. 30 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.
4:31 31 And so, brethren, we be not sons of the servant, but of the free wife, by which freedom Christ hath made us free. [+And so, brethren, we be not sons of the handmaiden/handmaid, but of the free, by which liberty Christ hath made us free.] 31 So then brethren we are not children of the bondwoman: {bond maid} but of the freewoman. 31 Then brethren, we are not children of the servant, but of the free woman. 31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.
5:1 1 Stand ye therefore, and do not ye again be held in the yoke of servage. [Therefore stand ye, and again do not ye be together holden in the yoke of servage.] 1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and wrap not yourselves {be not wrapped} again in the yoke of bondage. 1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. 1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty with which Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
5:2 2 Lo! I Paul say to you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall nothing profit to you. [Lo! I Paul say to you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit to you nothing.] 2 Behold I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing at all. 2 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. 2 Behold, I Paul say to you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.
5:3 3 And I witness again to each man that circumciseth himself [Soothly I bear witnessing again to every man circumcising himself] , that he is a debtor of all the law to be done. 3 I testify again to every man which is circumcised that he is bound to keep the whole law. 3 For I testify again to every man, which is circumcised, that he is bound to keep the whole Law. 3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.
5:4 4 And ye be voided away from Christ, and ye that be justified in the law, ye have fallen away from grace. [Ye be voided from Christ, ye that be justified in the law have fallen away from grace.] 4 Ye are gone quite from Christ as many as are justified {wylbe made righteous} by the law, and are fallen from grace. 4 Ye are abolished from Christ: whosoever are justified by the Law, ye are fallen from grace. 4 Christ is become of no effect to you, whoever of you are justified by the law; ye have fallen from grace.
