In AV 'creature' is used in the general (and original) sense of 'what is created.' Thus 2Co 5:17 'if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature'; 1Ti 4:4 'for every creature of God is good.' In Ro 8:19-21 it is not merely living creatures in the modern use of the word that wait for deliverance, but the whole creation of God (as AV itself has it in Ro 8:22).
