So I find this law at work:1 When I want to do good, evil is right there with me.
For in my inner being2 I delight in God's law;323
but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war4 against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin5 at work within my members.
What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death?625
Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!7 So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God's law,8 but in the sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.9
