Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 Therefore now nothing of condemnation is to them that be in Christ Jesus, which wander not after the flesh. 1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath delivered me from the law of sin, and of death [hath delivered me from the law of sin, and death]. 2 because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.
3 For that that was impossible to the law, in what thing it was frail by flesh, God sent his Son into the likeness of flesh of sin [in that thing it was sick, or frail, by flesh, God sending his Son into the likeness of flesh of sin], and of sin condemned sin in flesh; 3 For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in sinful man,
4 that the justifying of the law were fulfilled in us, that go not after the flesh [that not after the flesh we wander], but after the Spirit. 4 in order that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit.
5 For they that be after the flesh, understand those things [savour those things] that be of the flesh; but they that be after the Spirit, feel those things that be of the Spirit. 5 Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.
6 For the prudence of flesh is death; but the prudence of Spirit is life and peace. 6 The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace;
7 For the wisdom of the flesh is enemy to God; for it is not subject to the law of God, for neither it may [soothly neither it may be subject to the law]. 7 the sinful mind is hostile to God. It does not submit to God's law, nor can it do so.
8 And they that be in flesh, be not able to please to God. [For they that be in flesh, may not please to God.] 8 Those controlled by the sinful nature cannot please God.
9 But ye be not in flesh, but in Spirit; if nevertheless the Spirit of God dwelleth in you [dwell in you]. But if any man hath not the Spirit of Christ, this is not his. 9 You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ.
10 For if Christ is in you, the body is dead for sin [the body is dead from sin], but the Spirit liveth for justifying. 10 But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness.
11 And if the Spirit of him that raised Jesus Christ from death dwelleth in you, he that raised Jesus Christ from death, shall quicken also your deadly bodies, for the Spirit of him that dwelleth in you. [+For if the Spirit of him that raised Jesus Christ from dead dwell in you, he that raised Jesus Christ from dead, shall quicken also your deadly bodies, for the Spirit of him dwelling in you.] 11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you.
12 Therefore, brethren, we be debtors, not to the flesh, that we live after the flesh. 12 Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation--but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it.
13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die; but if ye by the Spirit [shall] slay the deeds of the flesh, ye shall live. 13 For if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live,
14 For whoever be led by the Spirit of God, these be the sons of God. 14 because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.
15 For ye have not taken again the spirit of servage in dread, but ye have taken the Spirit of adoption of sons, in which we cry, Abba, Father. 15 For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, ""Abba," Father."
16 And that Spirit yieldeth witnessing to our spirit, that we be the sons of God; 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children.
17 if sons, and heirs, heirs forsooth of God, and heirs together with Christ [forsooth if sons, and heirs, soothly heirs of God, truly even-heirs of Christ]; if nevertheless we suffer together, that also we be glorified together. 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs--heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
18 And I deem, that the passions of this time be not worthy to the glory to coming [be not even worthy to the glory to come], that shall be showed in us. 18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.
19 For the abiding of creature abideth the showing of the sons of God. 19 The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed.
20 But the creature is subject to vanity, not willing(ly), but for him that made it subject in hope; [Soothly the creature is subject to vanity, not willing, but for him that subjected it in hope;] 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope
21 for that creature [for and that creature] shall be delivered from servage of corruption into the liberty of the glory of the sons of God. 21 that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.
22 And we know, that each creature sorroweth, and travaileth with pain till yet. 22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.
23 And not only it, but also we us selves [but and we ourselves], that have the first fruits of the Spirit, and we us selves sorrow within us [and we ourselves sorrow within us] for the adoption of God's sons, abiding the again-buying of our body. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.
24 But by hope we be made safe. For hope that is seen, is not hope; for who hopeth that thing, that he seeth? [Soothly by hope we be made safe. Forsooth the hope that is seen, is not hope; for why what hopeth a man that thing, that he seeth?] 24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has?
25 And if we hope that thing that we see not, we abide by patience. 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.
26 And also the Spirit helpeth our infirmity; for what we shall pray, as it behooveth, we know not, but that Spirit asketh for us with sorrowings, that may not be told out [but that Spirit asketh for us with sorrowings, that be not able to be told out]. 26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.
27 For he that seeketh the hearts, knoweth what the Spirit desireth, for by God [for after God, that is, at God's will,] he asketh for holy men. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God's will.
28 And we know, that to men that love God, all things work together into good, to them that after purpose be called saints. 28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
29 For those that he knew before [For why and whom he knew before], he before-ordained by grace to be made like to the image of his Son, that he be the first begotten among many brethren. 29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.
30 And those that he before-ordained to bless, them he called; and whom he called, them he justified; and whom he justified, them he glorified. [Soothly whom he before-ordained to bless, and them he called; and whom he called, and them he justified; soothly whom he justified, and them he glorified.] 30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.
31 What then shall we say to these things? If God be for us, who is against us? 31 What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us?
32 Which also spared not his own Son, but betook him for us all, how also gave he not to us all things with him? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all--how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?
33 Who shall accuse against the chosen men of God? It is God that justifieth, 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies.
34 who is it that condemneth? It is Jesus Christ that was dead, yea, the which rose again, the which is on the right half of God, and the which prayeth for us [the which and rose again, the which is on the right half of God, the which prayeth for us]. 34 Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died--more than that, who was raised to life--is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.
35 Who then shall separate us [Who therefore shall part us] from the charity of Christ? tribulation, or anguish, or hunger, or nakedness, or persecution, or peril, or sword? 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
36 As it is written, For we be slain all day for thee; we be guessed as sheep of slaughter [we be guessed as sheep to slaughter]. 36 As it is written: "For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered."
37 But in all these things we overcome, for him that loved us. 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
38 But I am certain [Soothly I am certain], that neither death, neither life, neither angels, neither principats, neither virtues, neither present things, neither things to coming [neither things to come], 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,
39 neither strength, neither height, neither deepness, neither any other creature may separate us [shall be able to part us] from the charity of God, that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
