8 Hence there is now no condemnation unto them who are in Christ Jesus;
2 For the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath set thee free from the law of sin and of death;—
3 For What was impossible by the law in that it was weak through the flesh God by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and concerning sin Condemned sin in the flesh,
4 In order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us—Who not according to flesh do walk But according to spirit;
5 For they who according to flesh have their being The things of the flesh do prefer, But they according to the spirit The things of the spirit;
6 For what is preferred by the flesh [is] death, Whereas what is preferred by the spirit [is] life and peace;—
7 Inasmuch as what is preferred by the flesh [is] hostile towards God, For unto the law of God it doth not submit itself neither in fact can it,—
8 They moreover who in flesh have their being cannot please God.
9 But ye have not your being in flesh but in spirit,—If at least God’s Spirit dwelleth in you; And if anyone hath not Christ’s Spirit The same is not his;—
10 But if Christ is in you The body indeed is dead by reason of sin, Whereas the spirit is life by reason of righteousness;
11 If moreover the Spirit of him that raised Jesus from among the dead dwelleth in you He that raised from among the dead Christ Jesus Shall make alive [even] your death-doomed bodies Through means of his indwelling Spirit within you.
12 Hence then, brethren—debtors we are Not unto the flesh, that according to flesh we should live,—
13 For if according to flesh ye live ye are about to die, Whereas if in spirit the practices of the flesh ye are putting to death ye shall attain unto life;
14 For as many as by God’s Spirit are being led the same are God’s sons,—
15 For ye have not received a spirit of servitude leading back into fear, But ye have received a spirit of sonship Whereby we are exclaiming—Abba! Oh Father!
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness together with our spirit that we are children of God;
17 And if children heirs also—Heirs indeed of God, But co-heirs with Christ,—If at least we are suffering together, In order that we may also be glorified together.
18 For I reckon that unworthy are the sufferings of the present season To be compared with the glory about to be revealed towards us;
19 For the eager outlook of creation ardently awaiteth the revealing of the sons of God,—
20 For unto vanity hath creation been made subject—Not by choice, But by reason of him that made it subject In hope
21 that creation itself also shall be freed—From the bondage of the decay Into the freedom of the glory of the sons of God;
22 For we know that all creation is sighing together and travailing-in-birth-throes together until the present,—
23 And not only so But we ourselves also who have the first-fruit of the Spirit—[We] even ourselves within our own selves do sigh,—Sonship ardently awaiting—The redeeming of our body;—
24 For by our hope have we been saved,—But hope beheld is not hope, For what one beholdeth why doth he hope for?
25 If however what we do not behold we hope for With endurance are we ardently awaiting [it];—
26 In the selfsame way moreover even the Spirit helpeth together in our weakness,—For what we should pray for as we ought we know not, But the Spirit itself maketh intercession with sighings unutterable,
27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is preferred by the Spirit—That according to God he maketh intercession in behalf of saints;
28 We know further that unto them who love God God causeth all things to work together for good,—Unto them who according to purpose are such as he hath called;
29 For whom he fore-approved He also fore-appointed to be conformed unto the image of his Son, That he might be firstborn among many brethren,—
30 And whom he fore-appointed The same he also called, And whom he called The same he also declared righteous, And whom he declared righteous The same he also made glorious:—
31 What then shall we say to these things? If God [is] for us who [shall be] against us?
32 He at least who his own Son did not spare But in behalf of us all delivered him up How shall he not also with him all things upon us in favour bestow?
33 Who shall bring an accusation against the chosen ones of God? God who declareth righteous?
34 Who is he that condemneth? Christ [Jesus] who died?—Nay! rather was raised [from among the dead],—Who is on the right hand of God, Who also is making intercession in our behalf?
35 Who shall separate us from the love of the Christ? Shall tribulation or distress or persecution or famine or nakedness or peril or sword?—
36 According as it is written—For thy sake are we being put to death all the day long, We have been reckoned as sheep for slaughter.—
37 Nay in all these things we are more than conquering Through him that hath loved us.
38 For I am persuaded that—Neither death nor life nor messengers nor principalities nor things present nor things to come nor powers,
39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing Shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
