Romans 8:1-21 Darby’s Translation

Life in the Spirit

8 1  [There is] then now no condemnation to those in Christ Jesus. 2  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and of death. 3  For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God, having sent his own Son, in likeness of flesh of sin, and for sin, has condemned sin in the flesh, 4  in order that the righteous requirement of the law should be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to flesh but according to Spirit. 5  For they that are according to flesh mind the things of the flesh; and they that are according to Spirit, the things of the Spirit. 6  For the mind of the flesh [is] death; but the mind of the Spirit life and peace. 7  Because the mind of the flesh is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God; for neither indeed can it be: 8  and they that are in flesh cannot please God. 9  But ye are not in flesh but in Spirit, if indeed God's Spirit dwell in you; but if any one has not [the] Spirit of Christ he is not of him:

10  but if Christ be in you, the body is dead on account of sin, but the Spirit life on account of righteousness. 11  But if the Spirit of him that has raised up Jesus from among [the] dead dwell in you, he that has raised up Christ from among [the] dead shall quicken your mortal bodies also on account of his Spirit which dwells in you. 12  So then, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to flesh; 13  for if ye live according to flesh, ye are about to die; but if, by the Spirit, ye put to death the deeds of the body, ye shall live: 14  for as many as are led by [the] Spirit of God, these are sons of God. 15  For ye have not received a spirit of bondage again for fear, but ye have received a spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 16  The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are children of God.

17  And if children, heirs also: heirs of God, and Christ's joint heirs; if indeed we suffer with [him], that we may also be glorified with [him]. 18  For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy [to be compared] with the coming glory to be revealed to us. 19  For the anxious looking out of the creature expects the revelation of the sons of God: 20  for the creature has been made subject to vanity, not of its will, but by reason of him who has subjected [the same], in hope 21  that the creature itself also shall be set free from the bondage of corruption into the liberty of the glory of the children of God.
