NIV 11 Brothers, if I am still preaching circumcision, why am I still being persecuted? In that case the offense of the cross has been abolished. NRS 12 I wish those who unsettle you would castrate themselves! NIV 12 As for those agitators, I wish they would go the whole way and emasculate themselves! NRS 13 For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters; only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for self-indulgence, but through love become slaves to one another. NIV 13 You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love.

NIV 16 So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.

NIV 17 For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want. NRS 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not subject to the law. NIV 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law. NRS 19 Now the works of the flesh are obvious: fornication, impurity, licentiousness, NIV 19 The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; NRS 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, anger, quarrels, dissensions, factions, NIV 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions NRS 21 envy, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these. I am warning you, as I warned you before: those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. NIV 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.
