Future Glory18For I consider that the sufferings of this present time aare not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. 19For the creation waits with eager longing for bthe revealing of the sons of God. 20For the creation cwas subjected to futility, not willingly, but dbecause of him who subjected it, in hope 21that ethe creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22For we know that fthe whole creation ghas been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. 23And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have hthe firstfruits of the Spirit igroan inwardly as jwe wait eagerly for adoption as sons, kthe redemption of our bodies. 24For lin this hope we were saved. Now mhope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? 25But if we hope for what we do not see, we nwait for it with patience.
