5:14 For the whole law can be summed up in a single commandment, 1 namely, “You must love your neighbor as yourself.” 2 5:15 However, if you continually bite and devour one another, 3 beware that you are not consumed 4 by one another. 5:16 But I say, live 5 by the Spirit and you will not carry out the desires of the flesh. 6 5:17 For the flesh has desires that are opposed to the Spirit, and the Spirit has desires 7 that are opposed to the flesh, for these are in opposition to 8 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. 5:19 Now the works of the flesh 9 are obvious: 10 sexual immorality, impurity, depravity, 5:20 idolatry, sorcery, 11 hostilities, 12 strife, 13 jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish rivalries, dissensions, 14 factions, 5:21 envying, 15 murder, 16 drunkenness, carousing, 17 and similar things. I am warning you, as I had warned you before: Those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God!
5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit 18 is love, 19 joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 20 5:23 gentleness, and 21 self-control. Against such things there is no law. 5:24 Now those who belong to Christ 22 have crucified the flesh 23 with its passions 24 and desires. 5:25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also behave in accordance with 25 the Spirit.
