Paul again addresses the reality of suffering while living in hope. Here we are reminded that there is a great glorious redemption to be accomplished as we groan for its completion. Creation groans, we groan and the Spirit groans for the completion of this redemption, and God will surely accomplish this full redemption for the believer and all of creation. So we can endure the suffering as we wait for what is sure and guaranteed.

Λογίζομαι γὰρ ὅτι οὐκ ἄξια τὰ παθήματα τοῦ νῦν καιροῦ πρὸς τὴν μέλλουσαν δόξαν ἀποκαλυφθῆναι εἰς ἡμᾶς.
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
ἡ γὰρ ἀποκαραδοκία τῆς κτίσεως τὴν ἀποκάλυψιν τῶν υἱῶν τοῦ θεοῦ ἀπεκδέχεται·
For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God.
τῇ γὰρ ματαιότητι ἡ κτίσις ὑπετάγη,
For the creation was subjected to futility,
οὐχ ἑκοῦσα
not willingly,
ἀλλὰ διὰ τὸν ὑποτάξαντα,
but because of him who subjected it,
ἐφ’ ἐλπίδι διότι καὶ αὐτὴ ἡ κτίσις ἐλευθερωθήσεται ἀπὸ τῆς δουλίας τῆς φθορᾶς
in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption
εἰς τὴν ἐλευθερίαν τῆς δόξης τῶν τέκνων τοῦ θεοῦ.
and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
οἴδαμεν γὰρ ὅτι πᾶσα ἡ κτίσις συστενάζει καὶ συνωδίνει ἄχρι τοῦ νῦν·
For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now.

οὐ μόνον δέ, ἀλλὰ καὶ αὐτοὶ τὴν ἀπαρχὴν τοῦ πνεύματος ἔχοντες ἡμεῖς καὶ αὐτοὶ ἐν ἑαυτοῖς στενάζομεν υἱοθεσίαν ἀπεκδεχόμενοι, τὴν ἀπολύτρωσιν τοῦ σώματος ἡμῶν.
And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.
τῇ γὰρ ἐλπίδι ἐσώθημεν·
For in this hope we were saved.
ἐλπὶς δὲ βλεπομένη οὐκ ἔστιν ἐλπίς·
Now hope that is seen is not hope.
ὃ γὰρ βλέπει τίς, τί καὶ ἐλπίζει;
For who hopes for what he sees?
ideaexplanation
εἰ δὲ ὃ οὐ βλέπομεν
But if we hope for what we do not see,
ἐλπίζομεν, δι’ ὑπομονῆς ἀπεκδεχόμεθα.
we wait for it with patience.
conditional
Ὡσαύτως δὲ καὶ τὸ πνεῦμα συναντιλαμβάνεται τῇ ἀσθενείᾳ ἡμῶν·
Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness.
τὸ γὰρ τί προσευξώμεθα καθὸ δεῖ οὐκ οἴδαμεν,
For we do not know what to pray for as we ought,
ἀλλὰ αὐτὸ τὸ πνεῦμα ὑπερεντυγχάνει στεναγμοῖς ἀλαλήτοις·
but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
ὁ δὲ ἐραυνῶν τὰς καρδίας οἶδεν τί τὸ φρόνημα τοῦ πνεύματος,
And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit,
ὅτι κατὰ θεὸν ἐντυγχάνει ὑπὲρ ἁγίων.
because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
concessive
οἴδαμεν δὲ ὅτι τοῖς ἀγαπῶσιν τὸν θεὸν πάντα συνεργεῖ εἰς ἀγαθόν,
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good,

for those who are called according to his purpose.

For those whom he foreknew

in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.

who can be against us?
ὅς γε τοῦ ἰδίου υἱοῦ οὐκ ἐφείσατο, ἀλλὰ ὑπὲρ ἡμῶν πάντων παρέδωκεν αὐτόν,
He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all,
πῶς οὐχὶ καὶ σὺν αὐτῷ τὰ πάντα ἡμῖν χαρίσεται;
how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?
τίς ἐγκαλέσει κατὰ ἐκλεκτῶν θεοῦ;
Who shall bring any charge against God's elect?
θεὸς ὁ δικαιῶν·
It is God who justifies.
τίς ὁ κατακρινῶν;
Who is to condemn?
Χριστὸς Ἰησοῦς ὁ ἀποθανών,
Christ Jesus is the one who died--
μᾶλλον δὲ ἐγερθείς,
more than that, who was raised--
ὃς ἐστιν ἐν δεξιᾷ τοῦ θεοῦ,
who is at the right hand of God,
ὃς καὶ ἐντυγχάνει ὑπὲρ ἡμῶν.
who indeed is interceding for us.
τίς ἡμᾶς χωρίσει ἀπὸ τῆς ἀγάπης τοῦ Χριστοῦ;
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?

As it is written, "For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
ἐλογίσθημεν ὡς πρόβατα σφαγῆς.
we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered."
