Romans 8

There is therefore no condemnation, to them who, in Jesus Messiah, walk not after the flesh. For the law of the spirit of life, which is in Jesus Messiah, hath emancipated thee from the law of sin and death. Inasmuch as the law was impotent, by means of the weakness of the flesh, God sent his Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin; that He might, in his flesh, condemn sin; so that the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us; since it is not in the flesh that we walk, but in the Spirit. For they who are in the flesh, do mind the things of the flesh: and they who are of the Spirit, do mind the things of the Spirit. For minding the things of the flesh, is death; but minding the things of the Spirit, is life and peace. Because minding the things of the flesh, is enmity towards God: for it doth not subject itself to the law of God, because it is not possible. And they who are in the flesh cannot Please God. Ye, however, are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit; if the Spirit of God truly dwelleth in you. And if in any one there is not the Spirit of Messiah he is none of his. 10 But if Messiah is in you, the body is dead, in regard to sin; and the Spirit is alive in regard to righteousness. 11 And if the Spirit of him, who raised our Lord Jesus Messiah from the dead, dwelleth in you; he who raised our Lord Jesus Messiah from the dead, will also vivify your dead bodies, because of his Spirit that dwelleth in you. 12 Now we are debtors, my Brethren, not to the flesh, that we should walk according to the flesh: 13 - (For if ye live according to the flesh, ye are to die. But if, by the Spirit, ye mortify the practices of the body, ye will live. 14 For they who are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God :) 15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage, again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, by which we cry, Father, our Father. 16 And this Spirit testifieth to our spirit, that we are the sons of God. 17 And if sons, then heirs; heirs of God, and participators of the inheritance of Jesus Messiah: so that, if we suffer with him, we shall also be glorified with him. 18 For I reckon, that the sufferings of the present time, are not comparable with the glory which is to be developed in us. 19 For the whole creation is hoping and waiting for the development of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to vanity, not by its own choice, but because of him who subjected it, 21 in the hope, that also the creation itself would be emancipated from the bondage of corruption, into the liberty of the glory of the sons of God. 22 For we know, that all the creatures are groaning and travailing in pain unto this day. 23 And not only they, but we also in whom are the first fruits of the Spirit, we groan within ourselves, and look anxiously for the adoption of sons, the redemption of our bodies. 24 Because we live in hope. But hope that is seen, is not hope: for if we saw it, how should we hope for it? 25 But if we hope for that which is not seen, we are in patient waiting. 26 So also the Spirit aideth our weakness. For we know not what to pray for, in a proper manner; but the Spirit prayeth for us, with groans not expressible: 27 and the explorer of hearts, he knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit; because he prayeth for the saints, agreeably to the good pleasure of God. 28 And we know that he aideth him in all things, for good, who love God; them whom he predestined to be called. 29 And he knew them, previously; and he sealed them with the likeness of the image of his Son; that He might be the first-born of many brothers. 30 And those whom he previously sealed, them he called: and those whom he called, them he justified: and those whom he justified, them he glorified. 31 What then shall we say of these things? If God is for us; who is against us? 32 And, if he spared not his Son, but gave him up for us all, how shall he not give us all things, with him? 33 Who will set himself against the chosen of God? It is God who justifieth. 34 Who is it that condemneth? Messiah died, and arose, and is on the right hand of God, and maketh intercession for us. 35 What will sever me from the love of Messiah? Will affliction? or distress? or persecution? or famine? or nakedness? or peril? or the sword? 36 As it is written: For thy sake, we die daily: and, we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 But in all these things we are victorious, by means of him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, will be able to sever me from the love of God, which is in our Lord Jesus Messiah.
