1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh but after the spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath set me free from the law of sin and death. 3 For that which was impossible for the law to do, and in which it was weak through the corruption of the flesh, God by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sacrifice for sin, hath done; that is, hath condemned sin in the flesh: 4 that the righteousness of the law may be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh but after the spirit. 5 For they who are after the flesh, mind the things of the flesh; but they who are led by the Spirit, do mind spiritual things. 6 Now to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace: 7 because the carnal mind is an enemy to God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be: 8 and they who are carnal, cannot please God. 9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the spirit, if the Spirit of God dwelleth in you: but if any one hath not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. 10 And if Christ be in you, the body indeed is dead because of sin, but the spirit is alive because of righteousness. 11 And if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead, dwelleth in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead, will also restore your mortal bodies to life, by his Spirit that now dwelleth in you.
12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors not to the flesh, to live after the flesh: 13 for if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die; but if by the Spirit ye mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God. 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. 16 So that the Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God. 17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and co-heirs with Christ: if so be we suffer with Him, that we may be also glorified with Him.
18 And I account the sufferings of this present time not worthy to be set against the glory that shall be revealed to us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the world is waiting for the revelation of the sons of God: 20 (for the world was subjected to vanity, not willingly, but through him who made it subject:) 21 in hope that they also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole world groaneth, and doth as it were travail in pain together even to this day. 23 And not only others, but those also who have the first-fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit the redemption of our body. 24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen, is not hope; for what any one sees, how doth he yet hope for? 25 but if we hope for what we see not, then we wait for it with patience.
26 And the Spirit likewise helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for, as we ought: but the Spirit itself intercedes for us with unutterable groans. 27 And He that searcheth the hearts, knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit; for he intercedeth for the saints according to the will of God.
28 And we know that all things co-operate for good to them that love God, to them that are called according to his purpose; 29 for those whom he foreknew, He also predetermined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that He might be as the first-born among many brethren: and whom He before ordained, these He also called; 30 and whom He called, these he also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.
31 What shall we say then to these things? if God be for us, who can be against us? 32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him freely give us all things? 33 Who shall lay any accusation against the elect of God? will God, who justifieth us? 34 Who is he that condemneth? Is it Christ, that died for us? yea rather, that is risen again, who is also at the right hand of God, and who maketh intercession for us? 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall affliction, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 (as it is written, "for thy sake we are killed all the day long, we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter:") 37 but in all these things 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 powers, nor things present, nor things future, 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.
