Λέγω δέ, ἐφ’ ὅσον χρόνον ὁ κληρονόμος νήπιός ἐστιν, οὐδὲν διαφέρει δούλου κύριος πάντων ὤν,
I mean that the heir, as long as he is a child, is no different from a slave, though he is the owner of everything,
ἀλλὰ ὑπὸ ἐπιτρόπους ἐστὶν καὶ οἰκονόμους ἄχρι τῆς προθεσμίας τοῦ πατρός.
but he is under guardians and managers until the date set by his father.
negativepositive
οὕτως καὶ ἡμεῖς, ὅτε ἦμεν νήπιοι, ὑπὸ τὰ στοιχεῖα τοῦ κόσμου ἤμεθα δεδουλωμένοι·
In the same way we also, when we were children, were enslaved to the elementary principles of the world.
comparison
ὅτε δὲ ἦλθεν τὸ πλήρωμα τοῦ χρόνου,
But when the fullness of time had come,
ἐξαπέστειλεν ὁ θεὸς τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ, γενόμενον ἐκ γυναικός, γενόμενον ὑπὸ νόμον,
God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law,
ἵνα τοὺς ὑπὸ νόμον ἐξαγοράσῃ,
to redeem those who were under the law,
ἵνα τὴν υἱοθεσίαν ἀπολάβωμεν.
so that we might receive adoption as sons.

ὅτι δέ ἐστε υἱοί,
And because you are sons,
ἐξαπέστειλεν ὁ θεὸς τὸ πνεῦμα τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ εἰς τὰς καρδίας ἡμῶν, κρᾶζον· Ἀββᾶ ὁ πατήρ.
God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, "Abba! Father!"
ὥστε οὐκέτι εἶ δοῦλος
So you are no longer a slave,
ἀλλὰ υἱός·
but a son,
εἰ δὲ υἱός,
and if a son,
καὶ κληρονόμος διὰ θεοῦ.
then an heir through God.
