4 And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, BY THE RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD:

11. Romans 4:13.
For THE PROMISE, That He Should Be The Heir Of The World, WAS NOT to Abraham, or to his seed, THROUGH THE LAW, but through the righteousness of faith.

23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman WAS BY PROMISE.
24 Which things are an allegory: for THESE ARE THE TWO COVENANTS; THE ONE FROM THE MOUNT SINAI, WHICH GENDERETH TO BONDAGE, which is Agar.
25 For this AGAR IS MOUNT SINAI IN ARABIA, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.
28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.
29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.
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.
31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.
