31b  Ist Gott für uns, wer mag wider uns sein?
32  Welcher auch seines eigenen Sohns nicht hat verschonet, sondern hat ihn für uns alle dahin gegeben,
wie sollt´ er uns mit ihm nicht alles schenken?
33  Wer will die Auserwählten Gottes beschuldigen? Gott ist hie, der gerecht macht,
34  Wer will verdammen? Christus ist hie, der gestorben ist, ja vielmehr, der auferwecket ist,
sitzt zur Rechten Gottes und vertritt uns.

31b  If God be for us, who can be against us?
32  He that spared not 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 lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.
34  Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again,
who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
