And we know that in all things God works for the good1 of those who love him,a whob have been called2 according to his purpose.329
For those God foreknew4 he also predestined5 to be conformed to the likeness of his Son,6 that he might be the firstborn7 among many brothers.
And those he predestined,8 he also called;9 those he called, he also justified;10 those he justified, he also glorified.1131
What, then, shall we say in response to this?12 If God is for us,13 who can be against us?1432
He who did not spare his own Son,15 but gave him up for us all--how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?
Who will bring any charge16 against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies.
Who is he that condemns?17 Christ Jesus, who died18--more than that, who was raised to life19--is at the right hand of God20 and is also interceding for us.2135
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?22 Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?2336
As it is written: "For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered."c2437
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors25 through him who loved us.2638
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,d neither the present nor the future,27 nor any powers,2839
neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God29 that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.30
