ANSWER: The Am. Revision puts "creation" for creature. All physical nature bears the scars of the primal curse pronounced on the sin of the world. But it is probable that Paul was having in mind more especially himself and his fellow-believers in Christ who were awaiting their glorification in the general resurrection of the dead, when soul and body will wear his glorious image. The meaning of "creature" here is a battle ground for critics. Alford in his notes exhibits six different definitions.
