NIVNew International Version
13You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh#13 In contexts like this, the Greek word for flesh (sarx) refers to the sinful state of human beings, often presented as a power in opposition to the Spirit; also in verses 16, 17, 19 and 24; and in 6:8.; rather, serve one another humbly in love.
