Main point summary
Paul unpacks what we can say when we are assailed by fear, worry, guilt/shame, and hopelessness.
What then shall we say to these things?
p If God is for us, who can be 1 against us?
q He who did not spare his own Son
but r gave him up for us all,
how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?
Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect?
s It is God who justifies.
t Who is to condemn?
Christ Jesus is the one who died—
more than that, who was raised—
u who is at the right hand of God,
v who indeed is interceding for us. 1
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
As it is written,
w “For your sake x we are being killed all the day long;
we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”
No, in all these things we are more than y conquerors
through z him who loved us.
For I am sure that neither death nor life,
nor angels nor rulers,
nor things present nor things to come,
nor height nor depth,
nor anything else in all creation,
will be able to separate us from the love of God
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
