28 We know that all things work together[a] for the good[b] of those who love God: those who are called according to His purpose.(A) 29 For those He foreknew He also predestined(B) to be conformed to the image of His Son,(C) so that He would be the firstborn among many brothers.(D) 30 And those He predestined, He also called; and those He called, He also justified;(E) and those He justified, He also glorified.(F)

The Believer’s Triumph

31 What then are we to say about these things?(G)
If God is for us, who is against us?(H)
32 He did not even spare His own Son(I)
but offered Him up for us all;(J)
how will He not also with Him grant us everything?
33 Who can bring an accusation against God’s elect?(K)
God is the One who justifies.(L)
34 Who is the one who condemns?(M)
Christ Jesus is the One who died,(N)
but even more, has been raised;(O)
He also is at the right hand of God(P)
and intercedes for us.(Q)
35 Who can separate us from the love of Christ?
Can affliction(R) or anguish or persecution(S)
or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
36 As it is written:
Because of You
we are being put to death all day long;(T)
we are counted as sheep to be slaughtered.(U)[c]
37 No, in all these things we are more than victorious(V)
through Him who loved us.(W)
38 For I am persuaded that not even death or life,(X)
angels or rulers,(Y)
things present or things to come,(Z) hostile powers,
39 height or depth, or any other created thing
will have the power to separate us
from the love of God(AA) that is in Christ Jesus our Lord!(AB)
