It is shown that a new two-variable integro-differential equation for an A-boson bound system which takes all two-body correlations exactly into account and is exact for A = 3 and S-state projected potentials, produces 3- and 4-body binding energies in excellent agreement with the best results in the literature. The adiabatic approximation to this equation provides close upper and lower bounds and describes three-body scattering.
