Romans 8

Deliverance from Bondage

Therefore there is now no a condemnation for those who are b in c Christ Jesus. For d the law of the Spirit of life
Or has set you free in Christ Jesus
in f Christ Jesus g has set you free from the law of sin and of death.
For h what the Law could not do,
Lit in which it was weak
j weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in k the likeness of
Lit flesh of sin
sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh,
so that the m requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who n do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on o the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit p the things of the Spirit. q For the mind set on the flesh is r death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, because the mind set on the flesh is s hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, and those who are t in the flesh cannot please God.

However, you are not u in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God v dwells in you. But w if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him. 10  x If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is
Lit life
alive because of righteousness.
11 But if the Spirit of Him who z raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, aa He who raised ab Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies
One early ms reads because of
through His Spirit who dwells in you.

12 So then, brethren, we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh 13 for ad if you are living according to the flesh, you
Or are going to
must die; but if by the Spirit you are af putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
14 For all who are ag being led by the Spirit of God, these are ah sons of God. 15 For you ai have not received a spirit of slavery
Lit for fear again
leading to fear again, but you ak have received
Or the Spirit
a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, am Abba! Father!”
16 The Spirit Himself an testifies with our spirit that we are ao children of God, 17 and if children ap heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ aq if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.

18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time ar are not worthy to be compared with the as glory that is to be revealed to us. 19 For the at anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for au the revealing of the av sons of God. 20 For the creation aw was subjected to ax futility, not willingly, but ay because of Him who subjected it,
Or in hope; because the creation
in hope
21 that ba the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation bb groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now. 23  bc And not only this, but also we ourselves, having bd the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves be groan within ourselves bf waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons bg the redemption of our body. 24 For bh in hope we have been saved, but bi hope that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees? 25 But bj if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it.

Our Victory in Christ

26 In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for bk we do not know how to pray as we should, but bl the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; 27 and bm He who searches the hearts knows what bn the mind of the Spirit is, because He bo intercedes for the
Or holy ones
saints according to the will of God.

28 And we know that
One early ms reads all things work together for good
God causes br all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are bs called according to His purpose.
29 For those whom He bt foreknew, He also bu predestined to become bv conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the bw firstborn among many brethren; 30 and these whom He bx predestined, He also by called; and these whom He called, He also bz justified; and these whom He justified, He also ca glorified.

31  cb What then shall we say to these things? cc If God is for us, who is against us? 32 He who cd did not spare His own Son, but ce delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? 33 Who will bring a charge against cf God’s elect? cg God is the one who justifies; 34 who is the one who ch condemns? Christ Jesus is He who ci died, yes, rather who was
One early ms reads raised from the dead
ck raised, who is cl at the right hand of God, who also cm intercedes for us.
35 Who will separate us from cn the love of
Two early mss read God
Christ? Will cp tribulation, or distress, or cq persecution, or cr famine, or cs nakedness, or ct peril, or sword?
36 Just as it is written, cu For Your sake we are being put to death all day long;
We were considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”

37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly cv conquer through cw Him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither cx death, nor life, nor cy angels, nor principalities, nor cz things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from da the love of God, which is db in Christ Jesus our Lord.
