Romans 8:24
Good News Translation
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?

Contemporary English Version
And this hope is what saves us. But if we already have what we hope for, there is no need to keep on hoping.

Douay-Rheims Bible
For we are saved by hope. But hope that is seen is not hope. For what a man seeth, why doth he hope for?

New American Bible
For in hope we were saved. Now hope that sees for itself is not hope. For who hopes for what one sees?
