Hellenic Greek Translation of the
“Therefore, now, there is not even one bit of condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, for the Law of the [Holy] Spirit, that of the life in Christ Jesus, freed you [brothers and sisters, born of the Spirit] once for all from the law of the sinful nature and of death.
“For that which is an impossibility for the law, because it was weak through the sinful nature, God having sent His Son in likeness of flesh of sin, and concerning sin, condemned sin in the sinful nature, in order that the righteous requirement of the law may be brought to completion in us who, not as dominated by the sinful nature are ordering our behavior, but as dominated by the [Holy] Spirit.
“For those who are habitually dominated by the sinful nature put their minds on the things of the sinful nature, but those who are habitually dominated by the [Holy] Spirit put their minds on the things of the [Holy] Spirit. For to have the mind dominated by the sinful nature is death, but to have the mind dominated by the [Holy] Spirit is life and peace; because the mind dominated by the sinful nature is hostile to God, for it does not marshal itself under the command of the law of God, neither is it able to. Moreover, those who are in the sphere of the sinful nature are not able to please God.
“But, as for you [born-of-God Christians], you are not in the sphere of the sinful nature but in the sphere of the [Holy] Spirit, provided that the [Holy] Spirit of God is in residence in you. But, assuming that a person does not have Christ’s [Holy] Spirit, this one does not belong to Him. But, assuming that Christ is in you, on the one hand the body is dead on account of sin, but on the other hand the [human] spirit is alive on account of righteousness.
“And assuming that the [Holy] Spirit of the One who raised up Jesus out from among the dead is in residence in you, He who raised from among the dead Christ Jesus will also make alive your mortal bodies through the agency of the [Holy] Spirit who is resident in you. So then, brethren, we are those under obligation, not to the sinful nature to live habitually under the domination of the sinful nature. For, assuming that you are living habitually under the dominion of the sinful nature, you are on the way to dying. But, assuming that by the [Holy] Spirit you are habitually putting to death the deeds of the [human] body, you will live.
“For as many are being CONSTANTLY led by God’s [Holy] Spirit, these are sons of God. For you did not receive a spirit of slavery again with resulting fear, but you received the [Holy] Spirit who places you as adult sons, by whom we cry out with deep emotion, Abba [namely], Father.
“The [Holy] Spirit Himself is constantly bearing joint-testimony with our [human] spirit that we are God’s children, and since children, also heirs; on the one hand, heirs of God, on the other, joint-heirs with Christ, provided that we are suffering with Him in order that we also may be glorified together, for I have come to a reasoned conclusion that the sufferings of the present season are of no weight in comparison to the glory which is about to be revealed upon us.
“For the concentrated and undivided expectation of the creation is assiduously and patiently awaiting the revelation of the sons of God; for the creation was subjected to futility, not voluntarily, but on account of the One who put it under subjection upon the basis of the hope that the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the liberty of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and travails together up to this moment, and not only, but we ourselves also who have the first fruit of the Spirit, we ourselves also are groaning within ourselves, assiduously and patiently waiting the full realization of our adult sonship at the time of the redemption of our body. For we were saved in the sphere of hope. But hope that has been seen is not hope, for that which a person sees, why does he hope for it? But if that which we do not see, we hope for, through patience we expectantly wait for it.
“And in like manner also the [Holy] Spirit lends us a helping hand with reference to our weakness, for the particular thing that we should pray for according to what is necessary in the nature of the case, we do not know with an absolute knowledge; but the [Holy] Spirit Himself comes to our rescue by interceding with unutterable groanings. Moreover, he who is constantly searching our hearts knows what is the mind of the [Holy] Spirit because, according to God, He continually makes intercession on behalf of the saints.
“And we know with an absolute knowledge that for those who are loving God, all things are working together resulting in good, for those who are divinely-summoned ones according to His purpose. Because, those whom He foreordained He also marked out beforehand as those who were to be conformed to the derived image of His Son, with the result that He is firstborn among many brethren. Moreover, those whom He thus marked out beforehand, these He also summoned. And those whom He summoned, these He also justified. Moreover, those whom He justified, these He also glorified.
“What then shall we say to these things? In view of the fact that God is on our behalf, who could be against us? Indeed, He who His own Son did not spare, but on behalf of us all delivered Him up, how is it possible that He shall not with Him in grace give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s chosen-out ones? God, the One who justifies? Who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus, the One who died, yes, rather, who has been raised, who is on the right hand of God, who also is constantly interceding on our behalf? Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation or distress or persecution or famine or nakedness or peril or sword? Even as it stands written, For your sake we are being put to death all the day long. We were accounted as sheep destined for slaughter. But in these things, all of them, we are coming off constantly with more than the victory through the One who loved us. For I have come through a process of persuasion to the settled conclusion that neither death nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things about to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
