There is therefore now no condemnation to them which
are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh,
but after the Spirit.
8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ
Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and
8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was
weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in
the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned
sin in the flesh:
8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be
fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but
after the Spirit.
8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the
things of the flesh; but they that are after the
Spirit the things of the Spirit.
8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be
spiritually minded is life and peace.
8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God:
for it is not subject to the law of God, neither
indeed can be.
8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please
8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit,
if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if
any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of
8:10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead
because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of
8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus
from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ
from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies
by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
8:12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the
flesh, to live after the flesh.
8:13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die:
but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of
the body, ye shall live.
8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God,
they are the sons of God.
8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage
again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of
adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our
spirit, that we are the children of God:
8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and
joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer
with him, that we may be also glorified together.
8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this
present time are not worthy to be compared with the
glory which shall be revealed in us.
8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature
waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
8:20 For the creature was made subject to vanity,
not willingly, but by reason of him who hath
subjected the same in hope,
8:21 Because the creature itself also shall be
delivered from the bondage of corruption into the
glorious liberty of the children of God.
8:22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth
and travaileth in pain together until now.
8:23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which
have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we
ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the
adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
8:24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen
is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet
8:25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we
with patience wait for it.
8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our
infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for
as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh
intercession for us with groanings which cannot be
8:27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what
is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh
intercession for the saints according to the will of
8:28 And we know that all things work together for
good to them that love God, to them who are the
called according to his purpose.
8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did
predestinate to be conformed to the image of his
Son, that he might be the firstborn among many
8:30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also
called: and whom he called, them he also justified:
and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God
be for us, who can be against us?
8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered
him up for us all, how shall he not with him also
freely give us all things?
8:33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's
elect? It is God that justifieth.
8:34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that
died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even
at the right hand of God, who also maketh
intercession for us.
8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or
famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
8:36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed
all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the
8:37 Nay, in all these things we are more than
conquerors through him that loved us.
8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor
life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers,
nor things present, nor things to come,
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 Lord.
