Romans 7:15–8:17

15 For that which I do I allow not: for bwhat I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. 16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto cthe law that it is good. 17 dNow then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 18 For I know that ein me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: bfor to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. 19 For bthe good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. 20 dNow if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. 22 For fI delight in the law of God after gthe inward man: 23 But I see hanother law in imy members, kwarring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from ||the lbody of this death? 25 mI thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

8 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who awalk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of bthe Spirit of life in Christ Jesus chath made me free from dthe law of sin and death. For ewhat the law could not do, in that fit was weak through the flesh, gGod sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and ||for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That hthe righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, awho walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For ithey that are after the flesh do jmind kthe things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit lthe things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is mdeath; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is nenmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, oneither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, pif so be that qthe Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not qthe Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. 10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but rthe Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of shim that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, the that raised up Christ from the dead ushall also quicken your mortal bodies ||xby his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, ynot to the flesh, to live after the flesh. 13 For zif ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do amortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. 14 For as many as bare led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. 15 For cye have not received dthe spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of eadoption, whereby we cry, fAbba, Father. 16 gThe Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are hthe children of God: 17 And if children, then iheirs; iheirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; kif so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
