|Galatians 4: 22 - 24, 26 - 27, 31
||For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by a slave and one by a free woman.
||But the son of the slave was born according to the flesh, the son of the free woman through promise.
||Now this is an allegory: these women are two covenants. One is from Mount Sinai, bearing children for slavery; she is Hagar.
||But the Jerusalem above is free, and she is our mother.
||For it is written, "Rejoice, O barren one who does not bear; break forth and shout, you who are not in travail; for the children of the desolate one are many more than the children of her that is married."
||So, brethren, we are not children of the slave but of the free woman.
