8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus.
8:4 that the ordinance 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 mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
8:6 For the mind of the flesh is death; but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace:
8:8 and they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
8:9 But ye are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you. But if any man hath not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwelleth in you, he that raised up Christ Jesus from the dead shall give life also to your mortal bodies through his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
8:12 So then, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh:
8:13 for if ye live after the flesh, ye must die; but if by the Spirit ye put to death the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
8:15 For ye received not the spirit of bondage again unto fear; but ye received the spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
8:16 The Spirit himself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are 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 with [him].
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 to us-ward.
8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creation waiteth for the revealing of the sons of God.
8:20 For the creation was subjected to vanity, not of its own will, but by reason of him who subjected it, in hope
8:21 that the creation itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the liberty of the glory 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 so, but ourselves also, who have the first-fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for [our] adoption, [to wit], the redemption of our body.
8:24 For in hope were we saved: but hope that is seen is not hope: for who hopeth for that which he seeth?
8:25 But if we hope for that which we see not, [then] do we with patience wait for it.
8:26 And in like manner the Spirit also helpeth our infirmity: for we know not how to pray as we ought; but the Spirit himself maketh intercession for [us] with groanings which cannot be uttered;
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] God.
8:29 For whom he foreknew, he also foreordained [to be] conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren:
8:30 and whom he foreordained, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
8:31 What then shall we say to these things? If God [is] for us, who [is] against us?
8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not also with him freely give us all things?
8:33 Who shall lay anything to the charge of God`s elect? It is God that justifieth;
8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or anguish, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
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 things present, nor things to come, nor powers,
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.
