for the earnest looking out of the creation doth expect the revelation of the sons of God;
for to vanity was the creation made subject -- not of its will, but because of Him who did subject [it] -- in hope,
that also the creation itself shall be set free from the servitude of the corruption to the liberty of the glory of the children of God;
for we have known that all the creation doth groan together, and doth travail in pain together till now.
And not only [so], but also we ourselves, having the first-fruit of the Spirit, we also ourselves in ourselves do groan, adoption expecting -- the redemption of our body;
for in hope we were saved, and hope beheld is not hope; for what any one doth behold, why also doth he hope for [it]?
and if what we do not behold we hope for, through continuance we expect [it].
And, in like manner also, the Spirit doth help our weaknesses; for, what we may pray for, as it behoveth [us], we have not known, but the Spirit himself doth make intercession for us with groanings unutterable,
and He who is searching the hearts hath known what [is] the mind of the Spirit, because according to God he doth intercede for saints.
And we have known that to those loving God all things do work together for good, to those who are called according to purpose;
because whom He did foreknow, He also did fore-appoint, conformed to the image of His Son, that he might be first-born among many brethren;
