Galatians 3:19 – 4:2

3.19 Therefore, why the Law? It was added in favor of the transgressions, up until which the seed should come, who was promised, having been directed through messengers by the hand of a mediator. 3.20 And the mediator is not of one, but God is one. 3.21 Therefore is the Law against the promise from God? May it never come to be! For if, for the sake of argument, Law has been given the natural ability to make alive, in fact, righteousness would be out from the law. 3.22 But Scripture closed up all under sin, in order that the promise out from faith concerning Jesus Christ should be given to the ones who believe. 3.23 However, before the faith came, we were being guarded under the Law, after being closed up, because of the about to be revealed faith. 3.24 Wherefore, the Law is in a state of having become a child guardian concerning us into Christ, in order that out from faith we should be justified. 3.25 And the faith having come, we are no longer under a child guardian. 3.26 For we are all sons belonging to God through the faith in Christ Jesus. 3.27 for as many as were immersed into Christ have put on Christ as an outer garment. 3.28 There is not Jew nor Greek, there is not slave nor free, there is not male or female, for we are all one in Christ Jesus. 3.29 And since we belong to Christ, then we are of the seed belonging to Abraham, and heirs according to the promise. 4.1 But I say upon as much time as the heir is an inarticulate babbler, he differs nothing from a slave, being lord of all, 4.2 but is under guardians and tutors, up until the time limit set by the father.
