Bible: Galatians 4:26-29

4:26 But the Jerusalem above is free, 1  and she is our mother. 4:27 For it is written:

Rejoice, O barren woman who does not bear children; 2 

break forth and shout, you who have no birth pains,

because the children of the desolate woman are more numerous

than those of the woman who has a husband.” 3 

4:28 But you, 4  brothers and sisters, 5  are children of the promise like Isaac. 4:29 But just as at that time the one born by natural descent 6  persecuted the one born according to the Spirit, 7  so it is now.
