16 I say then: u Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. 17 For v the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, w so that you do not do the things that you wish. 18 But x if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. 19 Now y the works of the flesh are evident, which are: 1 adultery, 2 fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, 3 murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that z those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But a the fruit of the Spirit is b love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, c goodness, d faithfulness, 23 4 gentleness, self-control. e Against such there is no law. 24 And those who are Christ's f have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
25 g If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 h Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
