Under the law (upo nomon). Instead of "under the flesh" as one might expect. See Galatians 3:2-6 for contrast between law and spirit. The flesh made the law weak ( Romans 8:3 ; Hebrews 9:10Hebrews 9:13 ). They are one and the same in result. See same idea in Romans 8:14 . Note present tense of agesqe (if you are continually led by the Spirit). See verse Romans 23 .
