16  I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall by no means fulfill the lust of the flesh.

16  But I say, walk by the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

16  So then, I say: Walk in the spirit, and you will not fulfill the desires of the flesh.

17  For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these things oppose each other, so that you do not do the things that you wish.

17  For the flesh desires against the spirit, and the spirit against the flesh. And since these are against one another, you may not do whatever you want.

17  For the flesh craves that which is harmful to the Spirit, and the Spirit opposes the things of the flesh: and the two are contrary to one another, so that you are unable to do whatever you please.
