28 We know that ·in everything God works [or God works everything together; or everything works together ] for the good of those who love him.
They are the people he called, ·because that was his plan […according to his purpose].
29 God knew them before he made the world [ For those whom he foreknew…], ·and he chose them […he also predestined/chose beforehand] to be ·like [molded to the pattern of; conformed to the image of] his Son so that Jesus would be the firstborn [ the preeminent one, but also indicating others will follow] of many brothers and sisters [ Jesus’ resurrection confirms that his followers will also share in God’s glory].
30 And those God ·chose to be like his Son [predestined; chose beforehand], he also called; and those he called, he also ·made right with him [declared righteous; justified]; and those he ·made right [declared righteous; justified], he also glorified [ both a past act in Christ, and a future transformation].
