Romans 8:26

Context

8:26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness, for we do not know how we should pray, 4  but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with inexpressible groanings.

1 tn Grk “slavery again to fear.”

2 tn The Greek term υἱοθεσία (Juioqesia) was originally a legal technical term for adoption as a son with full rights of inheritance. BDAG 1024 s.v. notes, “a legal t.t. of ‘adoption’ of children, in our lit., i.e. in Paul, only in a transferred sense of a transcendent filial relationship between God and humans (with the legal aspect, not gender specificity, as major semantic component).”

3 tn Or “in that.”

4 tn Or “for we do not know what we ought to pray for.”
