I clicked on the link, The 10 Paradoxes of Fatherhood, There is a certain immediacy about motherhood that cannot. In that article, I found Galatians 4:6 quoted as follows:
We are children of God by adoption. By the gift of the Holy Spirit we are able to cry Abba, Father.
That just didnt seem right, so I checked a couple of Bibles. Heres how that passage reads in the Douay-Rheims:
4:6. And because you are sons, God hath sent the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying: Abba, Father.
And in the King James:
4:6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
It seems pretty different to me. I wonder what Bible the author was using.
Oh, BTW, thanks again for making yourself such a fantastic reference librarian.
