Who is against us? (Rom 8:31)

“What then are we

To say about this?

If God is for us,

Who is against us?”

Τί οὖν ἐροῦμεν πρὸς ταῦτα; εἰ ὁ Θεὸς ὑπὲρ ἡμῶν, τίς καθ’ ἡμῶν;

Paul then ironically asked, “What then are we to say about this (Τί οὖν ἐροῦμεν πρὸς ταῦτα)?”  Then he responded himself as usual with another question.  “If God is for us (εἰ ὁ Θεὸς ὑπὲρ ἡμῶν), who is against us (τίς καθ’ ἡμῶν)?”  Paul once again asked two questions with an implied answer.  The answer to the first question is another question that if God is for us, who can be against us?  The implied answer was nobody.  With God on our side, there will be nobody against us.  We shall see.  Is God on your side?
