Romans 8:22-39 Darby’s Translation

22  For we know that the whole creation groans together and travails in pain together until now. 23  And not only [that], but even we ourselves, who have the first-fruits of the Spirit, we also ourselves groan in ourselves, awaiting adoption, [that is] the redemption of our body. 24  For we have been saved in hope; but hope seen is not hope; for what any one sees, why does he also hope? 25  But if what we see not we hope, we expect in patience.

26  And in like manner the Spirit joins also its help to our weakness; for we do not know what we should pray for as is fitting, but the Spirit itself makes intercession with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27  But he who searches the hearts knows what [is] the mind of the Spirit, because he intercedes for saints according to God.

More than Conquerors

28  But we do know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to purpose.

29  Because whom he has foreknown, he has also predestinated [to be] conformed to the image of his Son, so that he should be [the] firstborn among many brethren. 30  But whom he has predestinated, these also he has called; and whom he has called, these also he has justified; but whom he has justified, these also he has glorified.

31  What shall we then say to these things? If God [be] for us, who against us? 32  He who, yea, has not spared his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not also with him grant us all things? 33  Who shall bring an accusation against God's elect? [It is] God who justifies: 34  who is he that condemns? [It is] Christ who has died, but rather has been [also] raised up; who is also at the right hand of God; who also intercedes for us. 35  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? tribulation or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 36  According as it is written, For thy sake we are put to death all the day long; we have been reckoned as sheep for slaughter. 37  But in all these things we more than conquer through him that has loved us. 38  For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39  nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which [is] in Christ Jesus our Lord.
