There is thereforenownocondemnation to them which are inChristJesus, who walknotafter the flesh,butafter the Spirit.2For the law of the Spirit of lifeinChristJesus hath mademefreefrom the law of sinanddeath.3For what the law could not do,inthat it was weakthrough the flesh,Godsending his ownSonin the likeness of sinfulflesh,andforsin,acondemnedsinin the flesh:4That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilledinus, who walknotafter the flesh,butafter the Spirit.5For they that areafter the flesh do mind the things of the flesh;but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.6For to becarnallybminded is death;but to bespirituallyminded is lifeandpeace.7Because the carnalcmind is enmityagainstGod:for it isnotsubject to the law of God,neitherindeed can be .
So then they that arein the fleshcannotpleaseGod.9Butyearenotin the flesh,butin the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of Goddwellinyou.Now if any manhavenot the Spirit of Christ,heisnone of his.10AndifChrist be inyou, the bodyisdeadbecause of sin;but the Spirit is lifebecause of righteousness.11Butif the Spirit of him that raised upJesusfrom the deaddwellinyou, he that raised upChristfrom the deadshallalsoquickenyourmortalbodiesbydhisSpirit that dwellethinyou.12Therefore , brethren, we aredebtors,not to the flesh, to liveafter the flesh.13Forif ye liveafter the flesh, ye shalldie : butifye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live .
14For as many as are led by the Spirit of God,theyare the sons of God.15For ye havenotreceived the spirit of bondageagaintofear;but ye have received the Spirit of adoption,wherebywecry , Abba,Father.16
The Spirititself beareth witness with ourspirit,that we are the children of God:17Andifchildren,thenheirs;heirs of God , andjoint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may bealso glorified together .
18For I reckonthat the sufferings of this presenttime are notworthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealedinus.19For the earnest expectation of the creaturewaiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.20For the creature was made subject to vanity,notwillingly,but by reason of him who hath subjected the same inhope,21Because the creatureitselfalso shall be deliveredfrom the bondage of corruptioninto the gloriousliberty of the children of God.22For we knowthat the wholecreationgroanethand travaileth in pain togetheruntilnow.23Andnotonly they, butourselvesalso, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit,evenweourselvesgroanwithinourselves,waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of ourbody.24For we are saved by hope:buthope that is seenisnothope:forwhat a manseeth , why doth heyet hope for ?
25Butif we hope for that we seenot, then do wewithpatience wait for it.
26Likewise the Spiritalsohelpethourinfirmities:for we knownotwhat we should pray foras we ought : but the Spirititself maketh intercessionforus with groanings which cannot be uttered.27And he that searcheth the heartsknowethwhat is the mind of the Spirit,becausee he maketh intercessionfor the saintsaccording to the will of God.28And we know that all things work togetherforgood to them thatloveGod, to them who are the calledaccording to his purpose.29Forwhom he did foreknow , healso did predestinate to be conformed to the image of hisSon,thathe might be the firstbornamongmanybrethren.30Moreoverwhom he did predestinate , themhealsocalled : andwhom he called , themhealsojustified : andwhom he justified , themhealsoglorified .
31What shall wethensayto these things?IfGod be forus,who can be againstus?32
He thatsparednot his ownSon,butdeliveredhimupforusall,how shall henotwithhimalso freely giveus all things?33Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God'select? It is God that justifieth .
34Who is he that condemneth ? It is Christ that died , yearather , that is risen again , whoisevenat the right hand of God,whoalso maketh intercessionforus.35Who shall separateusfrom the love of Christ? shall tribulation,ordistress,orpersecution,orfamine,ornakedness,orperil,orsword?36As it is written , For thysake we are killedall the day long; we are accountedassheep for the slaughter.37Nay,inall these things we are more than conquerorsthrough him that lovedus.38For I am persuaded , thatneitherdeath,norlife,norangels,norprincipalities,norpowers,nor things present , nor things to come ,
39Norheight,nordepth,noranyothercreature, shall be able to separateusfrom the love of God, which is inChristJesusourLord.
