English Standard Version (ESV) New International Version (NIV)
4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. 4 in order that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit.
5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. 5 Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.
6 For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. 6 The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace;
7 For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God's law; indeed, it cannot. 7 the sinful mind is hostile to God. It does not submit to God's law, nor can it do so.
8 Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. 8 Those controlled by the sinful nature cannot please God.
9 You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. 9 You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ.
10 But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 10 But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness.
11 If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you. 11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you.
12 So then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. 12 Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation--but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it.
13 For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. 13 For if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live,
14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. 14 because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.
