1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life has made thee free from the law of sin and of death. 3 For there was an impotency of the law, in which it was weak through depravity, God having sent his own Son in the likeness of the sin of depravity and for sin, condemned sin in depravity: 4 in order that the righteousness of the law may be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to depravity, but according to the spirit. 5 For those being in harmony with depravity, do mind the things of depravity, and those in harmony with the Spirit, the things of the Spirit: 6 for the mind of depravity is death: and the mind of the Spirit is life and peace. 7 Therefore the mind of depravity is enmity toward God: for it is not subordinated to the law of God, for it is not able so to be. 8 But those being in depravity are not able to please God. 9 But ye are not in depravity, but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if any one has not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His. 10 But if Christ is in you, the body is dead so far as sin is concerned; but the Spirit is life so far as righteousness is concerned. 11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, the one having raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also create life in your mortal bodies through His Spirit, who dwells in you.
12 Then therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to depravity, to live according to depravity. 13 For if you live according to depravity, you are about to die: but if through the Spirit you kill the practices of the body, you shall live. 14 For so many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God. 15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again unto fear; but you received the Spirit of adoption, in which we cry; Father, Father. 16 The Spirit Himself witnesses along with our spirit, that we are the children of God. 17 And if children, indeed heirs; truly heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ; if we suffer together, in order that we may also be glorified together.
18 For I reckon that the sufferings of these present times are not worthy to be compared to the glory which is about to be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creature awaits the revelation of the sons of God. 20 For the creature has been subordinated to mortality, not willingly, but through Him who subordinated it; 21 therefore indeed pursuant to hope, the creature itself shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the liberty of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that all creation groans together and travails together until now; 23 and not only so, but we ourselves, having the earnest of the Spirit, and we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption of sons, the redemption of our body. 24 For we are saved by hope: but hope which is seen is not hope: for why does any one indeed hope for that which he sees? 25 But if we hope for that which we do not see, we wait for it with patience.
26 And likewise the Spirit also helps our infirmity. For we know not what we should pray for as it behooves us: but the Spirit himself makes intercession with unutterable groanings: 27 but he that searches the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because he makes intercession towards God in behalf of the saints.
28 But we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them that are called according to his purpose. 29 Because whom he did foreknow, he did also predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brethren: 30 and whom He did foreknow, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them He also glorified.
31 Then what shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 Indeed he who spared not his own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how will He not with him, freely give us all things? 33 Who will lay anything to the charge of God's elect? 34 It is God who justifies: who is he that condemns? It is Christ who died, and rather who is risen, who is on the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding in our behalf. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or anguish, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As has been written, that We are killed all day for thy sake; we are counted as sheep of the slaughter. 37 But in all these we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that, neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
