Romans 8:8–31

So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, pif so be that qthe Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not qthe Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. 10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but rthe Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of shim that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, the that raised up Christ from the dead ushall also quicken your mortal bodies ||xby his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, ynot to the flesh, to live after the flesh. 13 For zif ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do amortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. 14 For as many as bare led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. 15 For cye have not received dthe spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of eadoption, whereby we cry, fAbba, Father. 16 gThe Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are hthe children of God: 17 And if children, then iheirs; iheirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; kif so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. 18 For I lreckon that mthe sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with nthe glory which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the oearnest expectation of the creature pwaiteth for ppthe manifestation of the sons of God. 20 For qthe creature was made subject to rvanity, not willingly, but sby reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21 Because the creature itself also shall be tdelivered from the bondage of ucorruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that ||the vwhole creation wgroaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. 23 And xnot only they, but ourselves also, gwhich have ythe firstfruits of the Spirit, zeven we ourselves groan within ourselves, awaiting for bthe adoption, to wit, the credemption of our body. 24 For we are saved by hope: but dhope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? 25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience await for it. 26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for ewe know not what we should pray for as we ought: but fthe Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 And ghe that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is hthe mind of the Spirit, ||because ihe maketh intercession for the saints jaccording to the will of God. 28 And we know that kall things work together lfor good to them that love God, to them mwho are the called according to his npurpose. 29 For whom he did oforeknow, he also did ppredestinate to be qconformed to rthe image of his Son, that he might be sthe firstborn among many tbrethren. 30 Moreover whom he did ppredestinate, them he also ucalled: and whom he called, them he also xjustified: and whom he justified, them he also yglorified. 31 What shall we then say to these things? zIf God be for us, who can be against us?
