8:1 [There is] therefore now no condemnation to them who are in
Christ Jesus, who walk not according to the flesh, but
according to the Spirit.
8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life, in Christ Jesus, hath
made me free from the law of sin and death.
8:3 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:
8:4 That the righteousness of the law may be fulfilled in us,
who walk not according to the flesh, but according to the
8:5 For they that are according to the flesh, do mind the things
of the flesh: but they that are according to the Spirit, the
things of the Spirit.
8:6 For to be carnally minded [is] death; but to be spiritually
minded [is] life and peace:
8:7 Because the carnal mind [is] enmity against God: for it is
not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if the
Spirit of God dwelleth in you. Now if any man hath not the
Spirit of Christ, he is not his.
8:10 And if Christ [is] in you, the body [is] dead because of
sin; but the Spirit [is] life because of righteousness.
8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised Jesus from the dead
dwelleth in you, he that raised Christ from the dead will also
revive your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
8:12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to
live according to the flesh.
8:13 For if ye live according to the flesh, ye shall die: but if
ye through the Spirit mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall
8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the
sons of God.
8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to
fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, by which we
cry, Abba, Father.
8:16 The Spirit itself testifieth with our spirit, that we are
the children of God:
8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs
with Christ; if we suffer with [him], that we may be glorified
8:18 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.
8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the
manifestation of the sons of God.
8:20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly,
but by reason of him who hath subjected [the same] in hope:
8:21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from
the bondage of corruption, into the glorious liberty of the
children of God.
8:22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth, and
travaileth in pain together until now:
8:23 And not only [they], but ourselves 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.
8:24 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?
8:25 But if we hope for what we see not, [then] with patience we
wait for [it].
8:26 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
8:27 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.
8:28 And we know that all things work together for good, to them
that love God, to them who are the called according to [his]
8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate [to be]
conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the
first-born among many brethren.
8:30 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.
8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God [is] for us,
who [can be] against us?
8:32 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?
8:33 Who will lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? [It
is] God that justifieth:
8:34 Who [is] he that condemneth? [It is] Christ that died, or
rather that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of
God, who also maketh intercession for us.
8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? [shall]
tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or
nakedness, or peril, or sword?
8:36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day
long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
8:37 But in all these things we are more than conquerors,
through him that loved us.
8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor
angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor
things to come,
8:39 Nor hight, nor depth, nor any other creature, will be able
to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus
