Darby English Bible
8:1 [There is] then now no condemnation to those in Christ
8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me
free from the law of sin and of death.
8:3 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,
8:4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law should be
fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to flesh but according to
8:5 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.
8:6 For the mind of the flesh [is] death; but the mind of the
Spirit life and peace.
8:7 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:
8:8 and they that are in flesh cannot please God.
8:9 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:
8:10 but if Christ be in you, the body is dead on account of
sin, but the Spirit life on account of righteousness.
8:11 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.
8:12 So then, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to
live according to flesh;
8:13 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:
8:14 for as many as are led by [the] Spirit of God, *these* are
sons of God.
8:15 For ye have not received a spirit of bondage again for
fear, but ye have received a spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba,
8:16 The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit, that we
are children of God.
8:17 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].
8:18 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.
8:19 For the anxious looking out of the creature expects the
revelation of the sons of God:
8:20 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
8:21 that the creature itself also shall be set free from the
bondage of corruption into the liberty of the glory of the children of
8:22 For we know that the whole creation groans together and
travails in pain together until now.
8:23 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.
8:24 For we have been saved in hope; but hope seen is not hope;
for what any one sees, why does he also hope?
8:25 But if what we see not we hope, we expect in patience.
8:26 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
8:27 But he who searches the hearts knows what [is] the mind of
the Spirit, because he intercedes for saints according to God.
8:28 But we *do* know that all things work together for good to
those who love God, to those who are called according to purpose.
8:29 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.
8:30 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.
8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God [be] for us,
who against us?
8:32 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?
8:33 Who shall bring an accusation against God's elect? [It is]
God who justifies:
8:34 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.
8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? tribulation
or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or
8:36 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.
8:37 But in all these things we more than conquer through him
that has loved us.
8:38 For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor
angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor
8:39 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
