15 For I do not understand my own actions. For xI do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate.
18 For I know that nothing good dwells ain me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. 19 bFor I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing.
21 So I find it to be a law that when I want to do right, evil lies close at hand.
23 but I see in my members fanother law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members.
