For allwho are 1being led by the Spirit of God, these are 2sons of God.
For you 3have not received a spirit of slaveryaleading to fearagain, but you 4have receivedba spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, "5Abba ! Father !"
The SpiritHimself6testifies with our spirit that we are 7children of God,
and ifchildren, 8heirsalso, heirs of God and fellowheirs with Christ, 9ifindeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.
For I consider that the sufferings of thispresenttime10are not worthy to be compared with the 11glory that is to be revealed to us.
For the 12anxiouslonging of the creationwaitseagerly for 13the revealing of the 14sons of God.
For the creation15was subjected to 16futility, not willingly, but 17because of Him who subjected it, cin hope21
that 18the creationitselfalso will be setfree from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
For we know that the wholecreation19groans and suffers the pains of childbirthtogetheruntilnow.
2320And not only this, but also we ourselves, having21the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves22groanwithinourselves, 23waitingeagerly for our adoption as sons, 24the redemption of our body.
For 25in hope we have been saved, but 26hope that is seen is not hope ; for whohopes for what he already sees ?
