Romans 8:20-22

20For the creation a  was subjected to futility, not willingly, but b  because of him who subjected it, in hope 21that c  the 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 d  the whole creation e  has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now.
