For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on (A)the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, (B)the things of the Spirit. (C)For the mind set on the flesh is (D)death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, because the mind set on the flesh is (E)hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, and those who are (F)in the flesh cannot please God.

However, you are not (G)in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God (H)dwells in you. But (I)if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him. 10 (J)If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is [a]alive because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of Him who (K)raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, (L)He who raised (M)Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies [b]through His Spirit who dwells in you.

12 So then, brethren, we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh— 13 for (N)if you are living according to the flesh, you [c]must die; but if by the Spirit you are (O)putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
