For when we were controlled by the sinful nature, the sinful passions aroused by the law were at work in our bodies, so that we bore fruit for death.
For while we were in the flesh, the sinful passions, which were aroused by the Law, were at work in the members of our body to bear fruit for death.
When we were controlled by our old nature, sinful desires were at work within us, and the law aroused these evil desires that produced sinful deeds, resulting in death.
For as long as we lived that old way of life, doing whatever we felt we could get away with, sin was calling most of the shots as the old law code hemmed us in. And this made us all the more rebellious. In the end, all we had to show for it was miscarriages and stillbirths.
For when we were in the flesh, the evil passions which came into being through the law were working in our bodies to give the fruit of death.
While we were living in the flesh, our sinful passions, aroused by the law, were at work in our members to bear fruit for death.
For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death.
