New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
22 I love God's law with all my heart. 22 For in my inner being I delight in God's law;
23 But there is another law at work within me that is at war with my mind. This law wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. 23 but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members.
24 Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin? 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death?
25 Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord. So you see how it is: In my mind I really want to obey God's law, but because of my sinful nature I am a slave to sin. 25 Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God's law, but in the sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.
