21 I find then (A)the [a]principle that evil is present in me, the one who wants to do good. 22 For I joyfully agree with the law of God [b]in (B)the inner person, 23 but I see (C)a different law in [c]the parts of my body waging war against the (D)law of my mind, and making me a prisoner [d]of (E)the law of sin, the law which is in [e]my body’s parts. 24 Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from [f](F)the body of this (G)death? 25 (H)Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, on the one hand I myself with my mind am serving the law of God, but on the other, with my flesh (I)the law of sin.
