New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
31 What can we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? 31 What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us?
32 Since God did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won't God, who gave us Christ, also give us everything else? 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 dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? Will God? No! He is the one who has given us right standing with himself. 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies.
34 Who then will condemn us? Will Christ Jesus? No, for he is the one who died for us and was raised to life for us and is sitting at the place of highest honor next to God, pleading 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 Can anything ever separate us from Christ's love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or are hungry or cold or in danger or threatened with death? 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 (Even the Scriptures say, "For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep." ) 36 As it is written: "For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered."
37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love. Death can't, and life can't. The angels can't, and the demons can't. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, and even the powers of hell can't keep God's love away. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,
