Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Romans 8:19-22.


Romans 8:21

_ _ Because the creature itself also — “even the creation itself.”

_ _ shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption — its bondage to the principle of decay.

_ _ into the glorious liberty — rather, “the liberty of the glory.”

_ _ of the children of God — that is, the creation itself shall, in a glorious sense, be delivered into that freedom from debility and decay in which the children of God, when raised up in glory, shall expatiate: into this freedom from corruptibility the creation itself shall, in a glorious sense, be delivered (So Calvin, Beza, Bengel, Tholuck, Olshausen, De Wette, Meyer, Philippi, Hodge, Alford, etc.).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 8:17-25.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 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.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 8:21

Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the (b) bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

(b) From the corruption which they are now subject to, they will be delivered and changed into the blessed state of incorruption, which will be revealed when the sons of God will be advanced to glory.
