Romans 8:20X

20 For the creation was subjected to vanity, not of its own will, but by reason of him who subjected it, in hope

Romans 8:20X

20 For the creation (nature) was subjected to frailty (to futility, condemned to frustration), not because of some intentional fault on its part, but by the will of Him Who so subjected it—[yet] with the hope

Romans 8:20X

20 Creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice—it was the choice of the one who subjected it—but in the hope

Romans 8:20X

20 for the creation was made subject to frustration — not willingly, but because of the one who subjected it. But it was given a reliable hope

Romans 8:20X

20 Meanwhile, creation is confused, but not because it wants to be confused. God made it this way in the hope

Romans 8:20X

20 for the creature has been made subject to vanity, not of its will, but by reason of him who has subjected [the same], in hope

20 Everything God made was allowed to become like something that cannot fulfill its purpose. That was not its choice, but God made it happen with this hope in view:

20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope

Romans 8:20X

20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope

Romans 8:20X

20 ·Everything God made [L For the creation] was ·changed to become useless [subjected to futility/meaninglessness; Gen. 3; Eccl. 1:2], not by its own wish but because God ·wanted [L subjected] it ·and because all along there was this hope [yet with the hope…]:

Romans 8:20X

20 Because the creature is subject to vanity, not of its own will, but by reason of him, which hath subdued it under hope,

Romans 8:20X

20 For the creation was subjected to futility—not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it—in the hope

Romans 8:20X

Present distress is temporary and negligible

18-21 In my opinion whatever we may have to go through now is less than nothing compared with the magnificent future God has planned for us. The whole creation is on tiptoe to see the wonderful sight of the sons of God coming into their own. The world of creation cannot as yet see reality, not because it chooses to be blind, but because in God’s purpose it has been so limited—yet it has been given hope. And the hope is that in the end the whole of created life will be rescued from the tyranny of change and decay, and have its share in that magnificent liberty which can only belong to the children of God!

Romans 8:20X

20 For the creatures were subjected to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who has subjected them,

Romans 8:20X

20-21 For on that day thorns and thistles, sin, death, and decay—the things that overcame the world against its will at God’s command—will all disappear, and the world around us will share in the glorious freedom from sin which God’s children enjoy.

Romans 8:20X

18-21 That’s why I don’t think there’s any comparison between the present hard times and the coming good times. The created world itself can hardly wait for what’s coming next. Everything in creation is being more or less held back. God reins it in until both creation and all the creatures are ready and can be released at the same moment into the glorious times ahead. Meanwhile, the joyful anticipation deepens.

Romans 8:20X

20 The created world was bound to fail. But that was not the result of its own choice. It was planned that way by the One who made it. God planned

20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope

Romans 8:20X

20 Everything that has been made in the world is weak. It is not that the world wanted it to be that way. God allowed it to be that way. Yet there is hope.

Romans 8:20X

20 Against its will, all creation was subjected to God’s curse. But with eager hope,

Romans 8:20X

20 For the creation was subjected to vanity, not of its own will, but because of him who subjected it, in hope

Romans 8:20X

20 The world was spoiled. It did not want to be spoiled, but God allowed it.

Romans 8:20X

20 But the creature is subject to vanity, not willing(ly), but for him that made it subject in hope; [Soothly the creature is subject to vanity, not willing, but for him that subjected it in hope;]

Romans 8:20X

20 for to vanity was the creation made subject -- not of its will, but because of Him who did subject [it] -- in hope,
