Romans 8:15

Context
8:15 For you did not receive the spirit of slavery leading again to fear, 2  but you received the Spirit of adoption, 3  by whom 4  we cry, “Abba, Father.”

1 tn Or “are not controlled by the flesh but by the Spirit.”

2 tn Grk “slavery again to fear.”

3 tn The Greek term υἱοθεσία (Juioqesia) was originally a legal technical term for adoption as a son with full rights of inheritance. BDAG 1024 s.v. notes, “a legal t.t. of ‘adoption’ of children, in our lit., i.e. in Paul, only in a transferred sense of a transcendent filial relationship between God and humans (with the legal aspect, not gender specificity, as major semantic component).”

4 tn Or “in that.”
