English Standard VersionNew American Standard Bible
1There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.1Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
2For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.
3For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh,3For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh,
4in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.4so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
5For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.5For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.
6For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.6For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace,
7For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot.7because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so,
8Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.8and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
9You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.9However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.
10But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness.10If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness.
11If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.11But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
12So then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh.12So then, brethren, we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh--
13For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.13for if you are living according to the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
14For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.14For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
15For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”15For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, "Abba! Father!"
16The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,16The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God,
17and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.17and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.
18For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.18For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
19For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God.19For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God.
20For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope20For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope
21that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.21that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
22For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now.22For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
23And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.23And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body.
24For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees?24For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees?
25But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.25But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it.
26Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.26In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words;
27And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.27and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
28And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.28And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
29For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.29For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren;
30And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.30and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified.
31What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?31What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us?
32He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?32He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?
33Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.33Who will bring a charge against God's elect? God is the one who justifies;
34Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.34who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us.
35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?35Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”36Just as it is written, "FOR YOUR SAKE WE ARE BEING PUT TO DEATH ALL DAY LONG; WE WERE CONSIDERED AS SHEEP TO BE SLAUGHTERED."
37No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.37But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.
38For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers,38For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,
39nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.39nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
