19 Now the works of the flesh are obvious:[a] sexual immorality,(A) moral impurity,(B) promiscuity,(C) 20 idolatry,(D) sorcery,(E) hatreds,(F) strife,(G) jealousy,(H) outbursts of anger,(I) selfish ambitions,(J) dissensions,(K) factions,(L) 21 envy,[b](M) drunkenness, carousing,(N) and anything similar. I am warning you about these things—as I warned you before—that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.(O)
