Romans 8:35-37

Context
8:35 Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will trouble, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 1  8:36 As it is written, “For your sake we encounter death all day long; we were considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” 2  8:37 No, in all these things we have complete victory 3  through him 4  who loved us!

1 tn Here “sword” is a metonymy that includes both threats of violence and acts of violence, even including death (although death is not necessarily the only thing in view here).

2 sn A quotation from Ps 44:22.

3 tn BDAG 1034 s.v. ὑπερνικάω states, “as a heightened form of νικᾶν prevail completely ὑπερνικῶμεν we are winning a most glorious victory Ro 8:37.”

4 tn Here the referent could be either God or Christ, but in v. 39 it is God’s love that is mentioned.
