Yet nearly all of us know from experience that trying harder is only part of what we need. (BF) 29 For those God foreknew(BG) he also predestined(BH) to be conformed to the image of his Son,(BI) that he might be the firstborn(BJ) among many brothers and sisters. 3 For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, That's the dominant message a lot of folks hear out of religion, especially as religion deals with chronic misbehavior and addictive sin. [c](J) And so he condemned sin in the flesh, 4 in order that the righteous requirement(K) of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.(L). (DO), 19 One of you will say to me:(DP) “Then why does God still blame us? (JD) Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead(W) is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies(X) because of[e] his Spirit who lives in you. (CT) 5 Theirs are the patriarchs,(CU) and from them is traced the human ancestry of the Messiah,(CV) who is God over all,(CW) forever praised! (FL) For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our message?”[af](FM) 17 Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message,(FN) and the message is heard through the word about Christ. 32 For God has bound everyone over to disobedience(HR) so that he may have mercy on them all. 6 We have different gifts,(IJ) according to the grace given to each of us. (JM) 4 For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. 31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? (FU) I am an Israelite myself, a descendant of Abraham,(FV) from the tribe of Benjamin. 4 For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function,(IH) 5 so in Christ we, though many, form one body,(II) and each member belongs to all the others. 19 Again I ask: Did Israel not understand? (DK) 15 For he says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy,    and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.”[q](DL), 16 It does not, therefore, depend on human desire or effort, but on God’s mercy. 13 Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness,(KB) not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. Romans 8:13 Parallel Verses [⇓ See commentary ⇓] Romans 8:13, NIV: "For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live." 8 But what does it say? 2 Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted,(JL) and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. 15 And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”[ae](FK). (HX)    To him be the glory forever! [l](CX) Amen. (JR) 9 The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,”[ba](JS) and whatever other command there may be, are summed up(JT) in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”[bb](JU) 10 Love does no harm to a neighbor. (JF) 19 Do not take revenge,(JG) my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,”[ay](JH) says the Lord. “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim: If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 13:8, ESV: "Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law." (GK) Rather, because of their transgression, salvation has come to the Gentiles(GL) to make Israel envious. 20 On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him;    if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”[az](JI).
