Wesley's Notes for Romans 8:21


8:21 The creation itself shall be delivered - Destruction is not deliverance: therefore whatsoever is destroyed, or ceases to be, is not delivered at all. Will, then, any part of the creation be destroyed? Into the glorious liberty - The excellent state wherein they were created.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 8:21


Ro 8:21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered. The Revised Version reads, "The creation was subjected . . . in hope that the creation itself also", etc. Though "subjected to vanity" (Ro 8:20), it still retained the hope of final deliverance. From the bondage of corruption. Decay and death. Into the glorious liberty. The Revised Version says, "The liberty of the glory". The present state is "bondage to corruption". The hope is deliverance from the bondage into "the liberty of the glory". In the day of the revelation of that glory, "all things shall become new" (Re 21:1,5).
