Romans 8:19

Context
8:19 For the creation eagerly waits for the revelation of the sons of God.

Romans 8:23

Context
8:23 Not only this, but we ourselves also, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, 1  groan inwardly as we eagerly await our adoption, 2  the redemption of our bodies. 3 

1 tn Or “who have the Spirit as firstfruits.” The genitive πνεύματος (pneumatos) can be understood here as possessive (“the firstfruits belonging to the Spirit”) although it is much more likely that this is a genitive of apposition (“the firstfruits, namely, the Spirit”); cf. TEV, NLT.

2 tn See the note on “adoption” in v. 15.

3 tn Grk “body.”
