NLTNew Living Translation
15So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children.#8:15a Greek you received a spirit of sonship. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.”#8:15b Abba is an Aramaic term for “father.” 16For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children.
