Galatians 5:16-18

Context
5:16 But I say, live 1  by the Spirit and you will not carry out the desires of the flesh. 2  5:17 For the flesh has desires that are opposed to the Spirit, and the Spirit has desires 3  that are opposed to the flesh, for these are in opposition to 4  each other, so that you cannot do what you want. 5:18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

1 tn Grk “walk” (a common NT idiom for how one conducts one’s life or how one behaves).

2 tn On the term “flesh” (once in this verse and twice in v. 17) see the note on the same word in Gal 5:13.

3 tn The words “has desires” do not occur in the Greek text a second time, but are repeated in the translation for clarity.

4 tn Or “are hostile toward” (L&N 39.1).
