Romans 8:22

_ _ For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now — If for man’s sake alone the earth was cursed, it cannot surprise us that it should share in his recovery. And if so, to represent it as sympathizing with man’s miseries, and as looking forward to his complete redemption as the period of its own emancipation from its present sin-blighted condition, is a beautiful thought, and in harmony with the general teaching of Scripture on the subject. (See on 2 Peter 3:13).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 8:17-25.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

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.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 8:22

For we know that the whole creation groaneth and (c) travaileth in pain together until now.
