Romans 8

CEB 1 So now there isn't any condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. NRS 1 There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. CEB 2 The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death. NRS 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. CEB 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. NRS 3 For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do: by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and to deal with sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, CEB 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. NRS 4 so that the just requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. CEB 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. NRS 5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. CEB 6 The attitude that comes from selfishness leads to death, but the attitude that comes from the Spirit leads to life and peace. NRS 6 To set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. CEB 7 So the attitude that comes from selfishness is hostile to God. It doesn't submit to God's Law, because it can't. NRS 7 For this reason the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God's law—indeed it cannot, CEB 8 People who are self-centered aren't able to please God. NRS 8 and those who are in the flesh cannot please God. CEB 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. NRS 9 But you are not in the flesh; you are in the Spirit, since the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. CEB 10 If Christ is in you, the Spirit is your life because of God's righteousness, but the body is dead because of sin. NRS 10 But if Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. CEB 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. NRS 11 If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also through his Spirit that dwells in you. CEB 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. NRS 12 So then, brothers and sisters, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh— CEB 13 If you live on the basis of selfishness, you are going to die. But if by the Spirit you put to death the actions of the body, you will live. NRS 13 for if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. CEB 14 All who are led by God's Spirit are God's sons and daughters. NRS 14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. CEB 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." NRS 15 For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received a spirit of adoption. When we cry, "Abba! Father!" CEB 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God's children. NRS 16 it is that very Spirit bearing witness with our spirit that we are children of God, CEB 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. NRS 17 and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ—if, in fact, we suffer with him so that we may also be glorified with him. CEB 18 I believe that the present suffering is nothing compared to the coming glory that is going to be revealed to us. NRS 18 I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory about to be revealed to us. CEB 19 The whole creation waits breathless with anticipation for the revelation of God's sons and daughters. NRS 19 For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the children of God; CEB 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 NRS 20 for the creation was subjected to futility, not of its own will but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope CEB 21 that the creation itself will be set free from slavery to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of God's children. NRS 21 that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and will obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. CEB 22 We know that the whole creation is groaning together and suffering labor pains up until now. NRS 22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning in labor pains until now; CEB 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. NRS 23 and not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly while we wait for adoption, the redemption of our bodies. CEB 24 We were saved in hope. If we see what we hope for, that isn't hope. Who hopes for what they already see? NRS 24 For in hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what is seen? CEB 25 But if we hope for what we don't see, we wait for it with patience. NRS 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience. CEB 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. NRS 26 Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words. CEB 27 The one who searches hearts knows how the Spirit thinks, because he pleads for the saints, consistent with God's will. NRS 27 And God, who searches the heart, knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. CEB 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. NRS 28 We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose. CEB 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. NRS 29 For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn within a large family. CEB 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. NRS 30 And those whom he predestined he also called; and those whom he called he also justified; and those whom he justified he also glorified. CEB 31 So what are we going to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us? NRS 31 What then are we to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us? CEB 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? NRS 32 He who did not withhold his own Son, but gave him up for all of us, will he not with him also give us everything else? CEB 33 Who will bring a charge against God's elect people? It is God who acquits them. NRS 33 Who will bring any charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. CEB 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. NRS 34 Who is to condemn? It is Christ Jesus, who died, yes, who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who indeed intercedes for us. CEB 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? NRS 35 Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will hardship, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? CEB 36 As it is written, We are being put to death all day long for your sake. We are treated like sheep for slaughter. NRS 36 As it is written, "For your sake we are being killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep to be slaughtered." CEB 37 But in all these things we win a sweeping victory through the one who loved us. NRS 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. CEB 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 NRS 38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, CEB 39 or height or depth, or any other thing that is created. NRS 39 nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
