Set Free From The Law Of Sin And Death

1 Therefore now no condemnation to them in Christ Jesus, walking not according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

1 Therefore there is now no (A)condemnation for those who are (B)in (C)Christ Jesus.

1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

1 Therefore, no condemnation(A) now exists for those in(B) Christ Jesus,(a)(C)

1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in union with the Messiah Jesus.

2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus freed me from the law of sin and death.

2 For (D)the law of the Spirit of life (a)in (E)Christ Jesus (F)has set you free from the law of sin and of death.

2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

2 because the Spirit’s law of life(D) in Christ Jesus has set you(b) free from the law of sin and of death.(E)

2 For the Spirit's law of life in the Messiah Jesus has set me free from the Law of sin and death.

3 For the impossibility of the law, in that it was weak by the flesh, God having sent his own Son in the likeness of the flesh of sin, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

3 For (G)what the Law could not do, (b)(H)weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in (I)the likeness of (c)sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh,

3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

3 What the law could not do(F) since it was limited(c) by the flesh,(G) God did. He condemned sin in the flesh by sending His own Son in flesh like ours(H) under sin’s domain,(d) and as a sin offering,(I)

3 For what the Law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the flesh, God did. By sending his own Son in the form of humanity, he condemned sin by being incarnate,

4 That the justification of the law be filled up in us, not walking according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

4 so that the (J)requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who (K)do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

4 in order that the law’s requirement would be accomplished(J) in us who do not walk according to the flesh(K) but according to the Spirit.

4 so that the righteous requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not live according to human nature but according to the Spirit.

5 For they being according to the flesh mind things of the flesh; and they according to the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

5 For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on (L)the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, (M)the things of the Spirit.

5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

5 For those who live(e) according to the flesh think about the things of the flesh,(L) but those who live(f) according to the Spirit, about the things of the Spirit.

5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.

6 For the thought of the flesh, death; and the thought of the Spirit, life and peace.

6 (N)For the mind set on the flesh is (O)death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace,

6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

6 For the mind-set of the flesh(M) is death,(N) but the mind-set of the Spirit is life and peace.

6 To focus our minds on the human nature leads to death, but to focus our minds on the Spirit leads to life and peace.

7 Wherefore the thought of the flesh enmity to God: for it is not subject to the law of God, for it cannot be.

7 because the mind set on the flesh is (P)hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so,

7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

7 For the mind-set of the flesh is hostile(O) to God because it does not submit itself to God’s law, for it is unable to do so.

7 That is why the mind that focuses on human nature is hostile toward God. It refuses to submit to the authority of God's Law because it is powerless to do so.

8 And they being in the flesh cannot please God.

8 and those who are (Q)in the flesh cannot please God.

8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

8 Those who are in the flesh(P) cannot please God.

8 Indeed, those who are under the control of human nature cannot please God.

9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwell in you. And if any have not the Spirit of Christ, he is not his.

9 However, you are not (R)in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God (S)dwells in you. But (T)if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.

9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

9 You, however, are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, since(g) the Spirit of God lives in you.(Q) But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ,(R) he does not belong to Him.

9 You, however, are not under the control of the human nature but under the control of the Spirit, since God's Spirit lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of the Messiah, he does not belong to him.

10 And if Christ in you, truly the body dead by sin; and the Spirit life by justice.

10 (U)If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is (d)alive because of righteousness.

10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

10 Now if Christ is in you,(S) the body is dead(h) because of sin, but the Spirit(i) is life because of righteousness.

10 But if the Messiah is in you, your bodies are dead due to sin, but the spirit is alive due to righteousness.

11 And if the Spirit of him having raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he having raised up Christ from the dead will make alive also your mortal bodies by his Spirit dwelling in you.

11 But if the Spirit of Him who (V)raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, (W)He who raised (X)Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies (e)through His Spirit who dwells in you.

11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

11 And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead(T) lives in you, then He who raised Christ from the dead will also bring your mortal bodies to life through(j) His Spirit who lives in you.

11 And if the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, then the one who raised the Messiah from the dead will also make your mortal bodies alive by his Spirit who lives in you.

The Holy Spirit's Ministries

12 Therefore, brethren, we are not debtors to the flesh, to live according to the flesh.

12 So then, brethren, we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh—

12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

12 So then, brothers, we are not obligated to the flesh to live according to the flesh,

12 Consequently, brothers, we are not with respect to human nature, that is under an obligation to live according to human nature.

13 For if ye live according to the flesh, ye shall die: and if by the Spirit ye kill the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

13 for (Y)if you are living according to the flesh, you (f)must die; but if by the Spirit you are (Z)putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live.

13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

13 for if you live according to the flesh, you are going to die. But if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body,(U) you will live.

13 For if you live according to human nature, you are going to die, but if by the Spirit you continuously put to death the activities of the body, you will live.

The Yeast Of The Pharisees And Herod

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God.

14 For all who are (AA)being led by the Spirit of God, these are (AB)sons of God.

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

14 All those led by God’s Spirit(V) are God’s sons.(W)

14 For all who are led by God's Spirit are God's children.

15 For ye have not received the Spirit of servitude again for fear; but have received the Spirit of adoption as a son, in which we cry, Abba, Father.

15 For you (AC)have not received a spirit of slavery (g)leading to fear again, but you (AD)have received (h)a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “(AE)Abba! Father!”

15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

15 For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear,(X) but you received the Spirit of adoption,(Y) by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father!”(Z)

15 For you have not received a spirit of slavery that leads you into fear again. Instead, you have received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba! Father!"

16 The Spirit itself testifies with our spirit, that we are children of God:

16 The Spirit Himself (AF)testifies with our spirit that we are (AG)children of God,

16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

16 The Spirit Himself testifies together with our spirit(AA) that we are God’s children,

16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children.

17 And if children, also heirs; truly heirs of God, and coheirs of Christ; if indeed we suffer together, that we may be also glorified together.

17 and if children, (AH)heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, (AI)if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.

17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

17 and if children, also heirs(AB)—heirs of God and coheirs with Christ—seeing that(k) we suffer with Him(AC) so that we may also be glorified with Him.

17 Now if we are children, we are heirs heirs of God and co-heirs with the Messiah if, in fact, we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

The Glory That Is To Be Revealed

18 For I reckon that the sufferings of the time now not worthy of the glory about to be revealed in us.

18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time (AJ)are not worthy to be compared with the (AK)glory that is to be revealed to us.

18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing(AD) with the glory(AE) that is going to be revealed to us.

18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed to us.

19 For the anxious expectation of the creation awaits the revelation of the sons of God.

19 For the (AL)anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for (AM)the revealing of the (AN)sons of God.

19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

19 For the creation eagerly waits with anticipation(AF) for God’s sons(AG) to be revealed.

19 For the creation is eagerly awaiting the revelation of God's children,

20 For the creation was subject to vanity, not voluntarily, but by him having subjected in hope,

20 For the creation (AO)was subjected to (AP)futility, not willingly, but (AQ)because of Him who subjected it, (i)in hope

20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,

20 For the creation was subjected(AH) to futility(AI)—not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it(AJ)—in the hope

20 because the creation has become subject to futility, though not by anything it did. The one who subjected it did so in the certainty

21 That also the creation itself be freed from servitude of corruption to the freedom of the glory of the children of God.

21 that (AR)the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God.

21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

21 that the creation itself(AK) will also be set free from the bondage of corruption into the glorious freedom of God’s children.

21 that the creation itself would also be set free from corrupting bondage in order to share the glorious freedom of God's children.

A Two-Stage Healing

22 For we know that all creation groans together and travails together until now.

22 For we know that the whole creation (AS)groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

22 For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together with labor pains(AL) until now.

22 For we know that all the rest of creation has been groaning with the pains of childbirth up to the present time.

23 And not only, but also they having the first fruits of the Spirit, and we ourselves groan in ourselves, waiting for the adoption as a son, the redemption of our body.

23 (AT)And not only this, but also we ourselves, having (AU)the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves (AV)groan within ourselves, (AW)waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, (AX)the redemption of our body.

23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

23 And not only that,(AM) but we ourselves who have the Spirit as the firstfruits(AN)—we also groan within ourselves,(AO) eagerly waiting for adoption,(AP) the redemption of our bodies.(AQ)

23 However, not only the creation, but we who have the first fruits of the Spirit also groan inwardly as we eagerly await our adoption, the redemption of our bodies.

24 For by hope were we saved: but hope being seen is not hope: for what any one sees, why does he also hope?

24 For (AY)in hope we have been saved, but (AZ)hope that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees?

24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?

24 Now in this hope(AR) we were saved, yet hope(AS) that is seen is not hope, because who hopes for what he sees?

24 For we were saved with this hope in mind. Now a hope that can be observed is not really hope, for who hopes for what can be seen?

25 And if what we see not, we hope for, by patience we wait.

25 But (BA)if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it.

25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.

25 But if we hope for what we do not see,(AT) we eagerly wait for it with patience.

25 But if we hope for what we do not yet observe, we eagerly wait for it with patience.

26 And likewise also the Spirit takes hold together, and assists our weaknesses: for what we would pray for as we ought, we know not, but the Spirit itself intercedes for us with inexpressible groanings.

26 In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for (BB)we do not know how to pray as we should, but (BC)the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words;

26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

26 In the same way the Spirit also joins to help in our weakness, because we do not know what to pray for as we should,(AU) but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us(l)(AV) with unspoken groanings.

26 In the same way, the Spirit also helps us in our weakness, since we do not know how to pray as we should. But the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans too deep for words,

27 And he searching hearts knows what the thought of the Spirit, for according to God he supplicates for the holy ones.

27 and (BD)He who searches the hearts knows what (BE)the mind of the Spirit is, because He (BF)intercedes for the (j)saints according to the will of God.

27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

27 And He who searches the hearts(AW) knows the Spirit’s mind-set, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.

27 and the one who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, for the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to God's will.

Nothing Can Separate Us From God's Love

28 And we know that to them loving God, all things work together for good, to them being called according to the setting up.

28 And we know that (k)God causes (BG)all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are (BH)called according to His purpose.

28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

28 We know that all things work together(m) for the good(n) of those who love God: those who are called according to His purpose.(AX)

28 And we know that for those who love God, that is, for those who are called according to his purpose, all things are working together for good.

29 For whom he before knew, he also before determined of the form of the image of his Son, for him to be first born in many brethren.

29 For those whom He (BI)foreknew, He also (BJ)predestined to become (BK)conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the (BL)firstborn among many brethren;

29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

29 For those He foreknew He also predestined(AY) to be conformed to the image of His Son,(AZ) so that He would be the firstborn among many brothers.(BA)

29 For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that the Son might be the firstborn among many brothers.

30 And whom he before determined, these he also called: and whom he called, these he also justified: and whom he justified, these he also glorified.

30 and these whom He (BM)predestined, He also (BN)called; and these whom He called, He also (BO)justified; and these whom He justified, He also (BP)glorified.

30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

30 And those He predestined, He also called; and those He called, He also justified;(BB) and those He justified, He also glorified.(BC)

30 And those whom he predestined, he also called; and those whom he called, he also justified; and those whom he justified he also glorified.

Victory In Christ

31 What then shall we say to these? if God with us, who against us?

31 (BQ)What then shall we say to these things? (BR)If God is for us, who is against us?

31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

31 What then are we to say about these things?(BD)If God is for us, who is against us?(BE)

31 What, then, can we say about all of this? If God is for us, who can be against us?

32 Who truly spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, and how not with him will he freely give us all?

32 He who (BS)did not spare His own Son, but (BT)delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?

32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

32 He did not even spare His own Son(BF)but offered Him up for us all;(BG)how will He not also with Him grant us everything?

32 The one who did not spare his own Son, but offered him as a sacrifice for all of us, surely will give us all things, along with his Son, won't he?

33 Who shall demand payment for the chosen of God? God justifying.

33 Who will bring a charge against (BU)God’s elect? (BV)God is the one who justifies;

33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.

33 Who can bring an accusation against God’s elect?(BH)God is the One who justifies.(BI)

33 Who will accuse God's elect? It is God who justifies!

34 Who, he condemning Christ having died, and rather also raised again, who is at the right hand of God, and who intercedes for us.

34 who is the one who (BW)condemns? Christ Jesus is He who (BX)died, yes, rather who was (l)(BY)raised, who is (BZ)at the right hand of God, who also (CA)intercedes for us.

34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

34 Who is the one who condemns?(BJ)Christ Jesus is the One who died,(BK)but even more, has been raised;(BL)He also is at the right hand of God(BM)and intercedes for us.(BN)

34 Who is the one to condemn? It is the Messiah Jesus who is interceding on our behalf. He died, and more importantly, has been raised and is seated at the right hand of God.

35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? pressure, or perplexity, or expulsion, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

35 Who will separate us from (CB)the love of (m)Christ? Will (CC)tribulation, or distress, or (CD)persecution, or (CE)famine, or (CF)nakedness, or (CG)peril, or sword?

35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

35 Who can separate us from the love of Christ?Can affliction(BO) or anguish or persecution(BP)or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?

35 Who will separate us from the Messiah's love? Can trouble, distress, persecution, hunger, nakedness, danger, or a violent death do this?

36 As has been written, That for thy sake we are killed the whole day; we were reckoned as sheep for slaughter.

36 Just as it is written,(CH)For Your sake we are being put to death all day long;We were considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”

36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

36 As it is written:Because of Youwe are being put to death all day long;(BQ)we are counted as sheep to be slaughtered.(BR)(o)

36 As it is written, "For your sake we are being put to death all day long. We are thought of as sheep headed for slaughter."

37 But in all these we obtain a complete victory by him having loved us.

37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly (CI)conquer through (CJ)Him who loved us.

37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

37 No, in all these things we are more than victorious(BS)through Him who loved us.(BT)

37 In all these things we are triumphantly victorious due to the one who loved us.

38 For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor beginnings, nor powers, nor things having stood, nor things about to be,

38 For I am convinced that neither (CK)death, nor life, nor (CL)angels, nor principalities, nor (CM)things present, nor things to come, nor powers,

38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

38 For I am persuaded that not even death or life,(BU)angels or rulers,(BV)things present or things to come,(BW) hostile powers,

38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,

39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creation, shall be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from (CN)the love of God, which is (CO)in Christ Jesus our Lord.

39 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.

39 height or depth, or any other created thingwill have the power to separate usfrom the love of God(BX) that is in Christ Jesus our Lord!(BY)

39 nor anything above, nor anything below, nor anything else in all creation can separate us from the love of God that is ours in union with the Messiah Jesus, our Lord.
