23 Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.
24 For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees?
25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for with perseverance.
26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
27 Now He who searches the hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because He makes intercession for the saints according to GOD.
28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love GOD, to those who are the called according to (His) purpose.
29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined, conformed to the image of His
Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.
31 What then shall we say to these things? If GOD for us, who against us?
32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?
33 Who shall bring a charge against GOD's elect? GOD who justifies.
34 Who (is) he that condemns? Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of GOD, who also makes intercession for us.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
15 For He says to Moses, "I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion."
16 So then not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of GOD who shows mercy.
17 For the Scripture says to the Pharaoh, "For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth."
18 Therefore He has mercy on whom He wills, and whom He wills He hardens. Rom8,9
9 The LORD is not slack concerning a promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all (of us) should come to repentance.
13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
14 Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless;
15 And consider the longsuffering of our LORD, value your salvation. 2Pet3
