4 That hthe righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, awho walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 5 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. 6 For †to be carnally minded is mdeath; but †to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because †the carnal mind is nenmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, oneither indeed can be. 8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 9 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:
