Wesley's Notes for Romans 8:22


8:22 For the whole creation groaneth together - With joint groans, as it were with one voice. And travaileth - Literally, is in the pains of childbirth, to be delivered of the burden of the curse. Until now - To this very hour; and so on till the time of deliverance.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 8:22


Ro 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth, etc. The world is in travail, groaning for deliverance. That it is in travail is certain; there is unrest and crying for deliverance everywhere. It may not understand its trouble, nor even what it wants, but the meaning is that it is fallen, its wishes frustrated, and it is sighing for deliverance. These groans and sorrows are a prophecy of a time of deliverance when there shall be "new heavens, and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness" (2Pe 3:13).

    We should fear so we don't fall after the same example of unbelief. We have the same promise that the saints of old had but it did not profit them because they didn't mix the Word they heard with faith. Let us make sure our faith is in two places; our heart and our mouths!
