Romans 8:22-27

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.
