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.
