New International Version
13 Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness,(A) not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy.(B) 14 Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ,(C) and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh.[a](D)
- Romans 13:14 In contexts like this, the Greek word for flesh (sarx) refers to the sinful state of human beings, often presented as a power in opposition to the Spirit.
