5 For those who are according to the flesh, the things of the flesh do mind; and those according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit;
6 for the mind of the flesh is death, and the mind of the Spirit -- life and peace;
7 because the mind of the flesh is enmity to God, for to the law of God it does not subject itself,
8 for neither is it able; and those who are in the flesh are not able to please God.
And you are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God does dwell in you; and if any one has not the Spirit of Christ -- this one is not His;
because he who is sowing to his own flesh, of the flesh shall reap corruption; and he who is sowing to the Spirit, of the Spirit shall reap life age-during;
And this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood the reign of God is not able to inherit, nor does the corruption inherit the incorruption;
1 There is, then, now no condemnation to those in Christ Jesus, who walk not according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit;
2 for the law of the Spirit of the life in Christ Jesus did set me free from the law of the sin and of the death;
3 for what the law was not able to do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God, His own Son having sent in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, did condemn the sin in the flesh,
4 that the righteousness of the law may be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
I find, then, the law, that when I desire to do what is right, with me the evil is present,
for I delight in the law of God according to the inward man,
and I behold another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of the sin that is in my members.
Watch, and pray, that you may not enter into temptation: the spirit indeed is forward, but the flesh weak.'
And I say: In the Spirit walk you, and the desire of the flesh you may not complete;
for if according to the flesh you do live, you are about to die; and if, by the Spirit, the deeds of the body you put to death, you shall live;
for as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God;
for when we were in the flesh, the passions of the sins, that are through the law, were working in our members, to bear fruit to the death;
And manifest also are the works of the flesh, which are: Adultery, whoredom, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, strifes, emulations, wraths, rivalries, dissensions, sects,
envyings, murders, drunkennesses, revellings, and such like, of which I tell you before, as I also said before, that those doing such things the reign of God shall not inherit.
For you -- to freedom you were called, brethren, only not the freedom for an occasion to the flesh, but through the love serve you one another,
because all that is in the world -- the desire of the flesh, and the desire of the eyes, and the ostentation of the life -- is not of the Father, but of the world,
and those who are Christ's, the flesh did crucify with the affections, and the desires;
in whom also you were circumcised with a circumcision not made with hands, in the putting off of the body of the sins of the flesh in the circumcision of the Christ,
the spirit it is that is giving life; the flesh does not profit anything; the sayings that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life;
that which has been born of the flesh is flesh, and that which has been born of the Spirit is spirit.
