I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.119
The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God2 to be revealed.
For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it,3 in hope
thata the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay4 and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.522
We know that the whole creation has been groaning6 as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.
