Romans 8:12-13

Context

8:12 So then, 1  brothers and sisters, 2  we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh 8:13 (for if you live according to the flesh, you will 3  die), 4  but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body you will live.

1 tn There is a double connective here that cannot be easily preserved in English: “consequently therefore,” emphasizing the conclusion of what he has been arguing.

2 tn Grk “brothers.” See note on the phrase “brothers and sisters” in 1:13.

3 tn Grk “are about to, are certainly going to.”

4 sn This remark is parenthetical to Paul’s argument.
