Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 So now there isn't any condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,
2 The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free 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 God has done what was impossible for the Law, since it was weak because of selfishness. God condemned sin in the body by sending his own Son to deal with sin in the same body as humans, who are controlled by sin. 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 He did this so that the righteous requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us. Now the way we live is based on the Spirit, not based on selfishness. 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 People whose lives are based on selfishness think about selfish things, but people whose lives are based on the Spirit think about things that are related to 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 The attitude that comes from selfishness leads to death, but the attitude that comes from the Spirit leads to life and peace. 6 The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace;
7 So the attitude that comes from selfishness is hostile to God. It doesn't submit to God's Law, because it can't. 7 the sinful mind is hostile to God. It does not submit to God's law, nor can it do so.
8 People who are self-centered aren't able to please God. 8 Those controlled by the sinful nature cannot please God.
9 But you aren't self-centered. Instead you are in the Spirit, if in fact God's Spirit lives in you. If anyone doesn't have the Spirit of Christ, they don't belong to him. 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 If Christ is in you, the Spirit is your life because of God's righteousness, but the body is dead because of sin. 10 But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness.
11 If the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, the one who raised Christ from the dead will give life to your human bodies also, through his Spirit that lives 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 So then, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation, but it isn't an obligation to ourselves to live our lives on the basis of selfishness. 12 Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation--but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it.
13 If you live on the basis of selfishness, you are going to die. But if you put to death the actions of the body with the Spirit, you will 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 All who are led by God's Spirit are God's sons and daughters. 14 because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.
15 You didn't receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, 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 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God's children. 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children.
17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God's heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him. 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 I believe that the present suffering is nothing compared to the coming glory that is going to be revealed to us. 18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.
19 The whole creation waits breathless with anticipation for the revelation of God's sons and daughters. 19 The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed.
20 Creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice—it was the choice of the one who subjected it—but in the 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 that the creation itself will be set free from slavery to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of God's children. 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 We know that the whole creation is groaning together and suffering labor pains up until now. 22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.
23 And it's not only the creation. We ourselves who have the Spirit as the first crop of the harvest also groan inside as we wait to be adopted and for our bodies to be set free. 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 We were saved in hope. If we see what we hope for, that isn't hope. Who hopes for what they already see? 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 But if we hope for what we don't see, we wait for it with patience. 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.
26 In the same way, the Spirit comes to help our weakness. We don't know what we should pray, but the Spirit himself pleads our case with unexpressed groans. 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 The one who searches hearts knows how the Spirit thinks, because he pleads for the saints, consistent with God's will. 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 We know that God works all things together for good for the ones who love God, for those who are called according to his purpose. 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 We know this because God knew them in advance, and he decided in advance that they would be conformed to the image of his Son. That way his Son would be the first of many brothers and sisters. 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 Those who God decided in advance would be conformed to his Son, he also called. Those whom he called, he also made righteous. Those whom he made righteous, he also glorified. 30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.
31 So what are we going to say about these things? If God is 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 He didn't spare his own Son but gave him up for us all. Won't he also freely give 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 will bring a charge against God's elect people? It is God who acquits them. 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies.
34 Who is going to convict them? It is Christ Jesus who died, even more, who was raised, and who also is at God's right side. It is Christ Jesus who also pleads our case 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 will separate us from Christ's love? Will we be separated by trouble, or distress, or harassment, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, 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, We are being put to death all day long for your sake. We are treated like sheep for 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 win a sweeping victory through the one who loved us. 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
38 I'm convinced that nothing can separate us from God's love in Christ Jesus our Lord: not death or life, not angels or rulers, not present things or future things, not powers 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,
39 or height or depth, or any other thing that is created. 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.
