Letter to the Romans   8: 18-25

8:18 For I consider that the sufferings of this time are not worthy to be compared with that future glory which shall be revealed in us.
8:19 For the anticipation of the creature anticipates the revelation of the sons of God.
8:20 For the creature was made subject to emptiness, not willingly, but for the sake of the One who made it subject, unto hope.
8:21 For the creature itself shall also be delivered from the servitude of corruption, into the liberty of the glory of the sons of God.
8:22 For we know that every creature groans inwardly, as if giving birth, even until now;
8:23 and not only these, but also ourselves, since we hold the first-fruits of the Spirit. For we also groan within ourselves, anticipating our adoption as the sons of God, and the redemption of our body.
8:24 For we have been saved by hope. But a hope which is seen is not hope. For when a man sees something, why would he hope?
8:25 But since we hope for what we do not see, we wait with patience.
