23 But before faith came, we were kept under guard by the law, [a]kept for the faith which would afterward be revealed.
23 But before faith came, [a]we were kept in custody under the Law, (A)being confined for the faith that was destined to be revealed.
23 Now before faith came, we were kept in custody under the Law, [perpetually] imprisoned [in preparation] for the faith that was destined to be revealed,
23 Before the coming of this faith,[a] we were held in custody(A) under the law, locked up until the faith that was to come would be revealed.(B)
