Romans 8:22-39

GNT 22 For we know that up to the present time all of creation groans with pain, like the pain of childbirth. NIV 22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. GNT 23 But it is not just creation alone which groans; we who have the Spirit as the first of God's gifts also groan within ourselves as we wait for God to make us his children and set our whole being free. NIV 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies. GNT 24 For it was by hope that we were saved; but if we see what we hope for, then it is not really hope. For who of us hopes for something we see? NIV 24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? GNT 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience. NIV 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. GNT 26 In the same way the Spirit also comes to help us, weak as we are. For we do not know how we ought to pray; the Spirit himself pleads with God for us in groans that words cannot express. NIV 26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. GNT 27 And God, who sees into our hearts, knows what the thought of the Spirit is; because the Spirit pleads with God on behalf of his people and in accordance with his will. NIV 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God. GNT 28 We know that in all things God works for good with those who love him, those whom he has called according to his purpose. NIV 28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. GNT 29 Those whom God had already chosen he also set apart to become like his Son, so that the Son would be the first among many believers. NIV 29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. GNT 30 And so those whom God set apart, he called; and those he called, he put right with himself, and he shared his glory with them. NIV 30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified. GNT 31 In view of all this, what can we say? If God is for us, who can be against us? NIV 31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? GNT 32 Certainly not God, who did not even keep back his own Son, but offered him for us all! He gave us his Son - will he not also freely give us all things? NIV 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? GNT 33 Who will accuse God's chosen people? God himself declares them not guilty! NIV 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. GNT 34 Who, then, will condemn them? Not Christ Jesus, who died, or rather, who was raised to life and is at the right side of God, pleading with him for us! NIV 34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. 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. GNT 35 Who, then, can separate us from the love of Christ? Can trouble do it, or hardship or persecution or hunger or poverty or danger or death? NIV 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? GNT 36 As the scripture says, "For your sake we are in danger of death at all times; we are treated like sheep that are going to be slaughtered." NIV 36 As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” GNT 37 No, in all these things we have complete victory through him who loved us! NIV 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. GNT 38 For I am certain that nothing can separate us from his love: neither death nor life, neither angels nor other heavenly rulers or powers, neither the present nor the future, NIV 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, GNT 39 neither the world above nor the world below - there is nothing in all creation that will ever be able to separate us from the love of God which is ours through Christ Jesus our Lord. NIV 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
