There is no condemnation to them, who being justified by Christ,
walk not according to the flesh, but according to the spirit. Their strong hope, and love of God.
1 There is, therefore, now no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus,
who walk not according to the flesh.
2 For the law of the spirit of life, in Christ Jesus, hath freed me from
the law of sin, and of death.
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, even of sin, condemned sin in the flesh,
4 That the justification of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk
not according to the flesh, but according to the spirit.
5 For they who are according to the flesh, relish the things that are of
the flesh: but they who are according to the spirit, mind the things which are of the spirit.
6 For the wisdom of the flesh is death: but the wisdom of the spirit is
life and peace.
7 Because the wisdom of the flesh is an enemy to God: for it is not subject
to the law of God, neither can it be.
8 And they who are in the flesh, cannot please God.
9 But you 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.
10 And if Christ be in you, the body, indeed, is dead, because of sin,
but the spirit liveth, because of justification.
11 *And if the Spirit of him, who raised up Jesus from the dead, dwell
in you: he that raised up Jesus Christ from the dead, shall quicken also your mortal bodies, because of his spirit that dwelleth
12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according
to the flesh.
13 For if you live according to the flesh, you shall die: but if by the
spirit you mortify the deeds of the flesh, you shall live.
14 For whosoever are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
15 *For you have not received the spirit of bondage again in fear: but
you have received the spirit of **adoption of sons, whereby we cry: Abba, (Father.)
16 For the Spirit himself giveth testimony to our spirit, that we are the
sons of God.
17 And if sons, heirs also: heirs indeed of God, and joint-heirs with Christ:
yet so, if we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified with him.
18 For I reckon, that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy
to be compared with the glory to come, that shall be revealed in us.
19 For the expectation of the creature waiteth for the revelation of the
sons of God.
20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason
of him, that made it subject in hope:
21 Because the creature also itself shall be delivered from the servitude
of corruption, into the liberty of the glory of the children of God.
22 For we know that every creature groaneth, and is in labour even till
23 And not only it, but ourselves also, who have the first-fruits of the
spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption of the sons of God, the redemption of our body.
24 For we are saved by hope. But hope that is seen, is not hope: For what
a man seeth, why doth he hope for?
25 But if we hope for that which we see not: we wait for it with patience.
26 Likewise the spirit also helpeth our infirmity: for we know not what
we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit himself asketh for us with unspeakable groanings.
27 And he that searcheth the hearts, knoweth what the Spirit desireth:
because he asketh for the saints according to God.
28 And we know that to them that love God, all things work together unto
good, to such as according to purpose, are called to be saints.
29 For whom he foreknew, he also predestinated to be made conformable to
the image of his Son: that he might be the first-born amongst many brethren.
30 And whom he predestinated, them he also called: and whom he called,
them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who is against
32 *He that spared not even his own Son, but delivered him up for us all:
how hath he not also, with him, given us all things?
33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of the elect of God? God that
34 Who is he that shall condemn? Christ Jesus who died, yea, who rose also
again, who is at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
35 Who then shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation?
or distress? or famine? or nakedness? or danger? or persecution? or the sword?
36 (As it is written: *For thy sake we are put to death, all the day long:
we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.)
37 But in all these things we overcome, because of him that hath loved
38 For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor Angels, nor principalities,
nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor might,
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.
