|<< Romans 8 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
There is therefore no condemnation to those in Yeshua The Messiah who do not walk in the flesh.
For The Law of The Spirit of Life which is in Yeshua The Messiah has freed you from the law of sin and of death.
For because The Written Law was weak through the sickliness of the flesh, God sent his Son in the form of sinful flesh, because of sin, to condemn sin in his flesh,
That the righteousness of The Written Law would be fulfilled in us, that we would not walk in the flesh but in The Spirit.
Those who are in the flesh are governed by the flesh, and those who are of The Spirit are governed by The Spirit.
For the mind of the flesh is death, and the mind of The Spirit is life and peace,
Because the mind of the flesh is hatred toward God, for it is not subject to the law of God because it cannot be.
And those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
9But you are not in the flesh, but in The Spirit, if truly The Spirit of God dwells within you, but if a man does not have The Spirit of The Messiah in him, this one does not belong to Him.
10But if The Messiah is in you, the body is dead for the cause of sin, but The Spirit is alive for the cause of righteousness.
11And if The Spirit of him who raised our Lord Yeshua The Messiah from among the dead dwells within you, he who raised Yeshua The Messiah from among the dead also will give life to your dying bodies, because of his Spirit who dwells within you.
12Now my brethren, we are indebted, not to the flesh that we should walk in the flesh,
13For if you are living in the flesh, you are going to die, and if you are putting to death the practices of the body, you are living.
14For those who are led by The Spirit of God, these are the sons of God.
15For you have not received The Spirit of bondage again to fear, but you have received The Spirit of the adoption of children by whom we cry, “Father, our Father.”
16And that Spirit testifies to our spirit that we are sons of God;
17And if sons, then also heirs; heirs of God and co-heirs with Yeshua The Messiah, for if we suffer with him, we shall also be glorified with him.
18For I give counsel that the sufferings of this time are not comparable to the glory which is going to be revealed in us.
19For the whole creation hopes for and expects the revelation of the sons of God.
20For the creation has been subjected to futility, not by its choice, but because of him who subjected it upon hope.
21For the creation shall also be freed from the bondage of destruction into the liberty of the glory of the sons of God.
22For we know that all created things groan and are in labor until today.
23And not only so, but we also who have in us the first fruits of The Spirit; we groan in ourselves and we look for the adoption of sons and the redemption of our bodies,
24Because we live in that hope; but hope that is seen is not hope, for if we see hope, why do we look for it?
25But if we hope for what is not seen, we wait patiently for it.
26In this way also The Spirit helps our weakness. We do not know what we should pray for, whenever it is necessary, but that Spirit prays in our place with groaning which is unspoken.
27But he who searches the hearts knows what the mind of The Spirit is, for he is praying according to the will of God in the place of the Saints.
28But we know that he helps those who love God in everything for good, those whom he preordained to be called.
29And those whom he foreknew, he also fashioned in the likeness of the image of his Son, that he would be The Firstborn of many brethren.
30And those whom he pre-fashioned, he called, and those whom he called, he made righteous, and those whom he made righteous, he glorified.
31What therefore shall we say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us?
32And if he did not show pity upon his Son, but he handed him over for the sake of us all, how shall he not give us everything with him?
33Who shall accuse The Elect of God? God is He Who declares righteous.
34Who is condemning? The Messiah has died and he is risen, and he is at the right hand of God and he prays for us.
35What will separate me from the love of The Messiah: Suffering, or imprisonment, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36As it is written: “For your sake we are killed every day, and we are accounted as sheep for slaughter.”
37But in all these things we are victorious by him who has loved us.
38I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor Angels, nor Authorities, nor Powers, nor things present, nor things future,
39Nor height, nor depth, neither any other created thing, shall be able to sever me from the love of God, which is in our Lord Yeshua The Messiah.
