Romans 8

Deliverance from Bondage

1Therefore there is now no a  condemnation for those who are b  in c  Christ Jesus. 2For 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.
3For 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,
4so 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. 5For 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. 6 q  For the mind set on the flesh is r  death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, 7because 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, 8and those who are t  in the flesh cannot please God.

9However, 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.
11But 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.

12So then, brethren, we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh 13for 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.
14For all who are ag  being led by the Spirit of God, these are ah  sons of God. 15For 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!”
16The Spirit Himself an  testifies with our spirit that we are ao  children of God, 17and 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.

18For 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. 19For the at  anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for au  the revealing of the av  sons of God. 20For 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
21that 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. 22For 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. 24For bh  in hope we have been saved, but bi  hope that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees? 25But bj  if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it.

Our Victory in Christ

26In 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; 27and 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.

28And 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.
29For 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; 30and 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? 32He 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? 33Who will bring a charge against cf  God’s elect? cg  God is the one who justifies; 34who 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.
35Who 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?
36Just 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.”

37But in all these things we overwhelmingly cv  conquer through cw  Him who loved us. 38For I am convinced that neither cx  death, nor life, nor cy  angels, nor principalities, nor cz  things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39nor 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.
