For 1the good that I want, I do not do, but I practice the veryevil that I do not want.
But if I am doing the verything I do not want, 2I am nolonger the one doing it, but sin which dwells in me.
I findthen3the aprinciple that evil is present in me, the one who wants to dogood.
For I joyfullyconcur with the law of Godbin 4the innerman,
but I see5a differentlaw in cthe members of my body, wagingwaragainst the 6law of my mind and making me a prisonerdof 7the law of sin which is in my members.
24Wretchedman that I am! Who will set me free from e8the body of this9death?
