Romans 8:3

Greek/English Interlinear with Strong’s Numbers


King James Version

For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
New King James Version

For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin; He condemned sin in the flesh,
New American Standard Bible

For what the Law could not do, weak as it was (wherein it was weak) through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh (flesh of sin) and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh,
New International Version

For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature (or, the flesh), God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering (or, man, for sin). And so He condemned sin in sinful man,
The Amplified Bible

For God has done what the Law could not do, [its power] being weakened by the flesh [the entire nature of man without the Holy Spirit]. Sending His own Son in the guise of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin. [God] condemned sin in the flesh [subdued, overcame, deprived it of its power over all who accept that sacrifice].
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

For that which is an impossibility for the law, because it was weak through the sinful nature, God having sent His Son in likeness of flesh of sin, and concerning sin, condemned sin in the sinful nature,
Phillips’ Modern English

The Law never succeeded in producing righteousness – the failure was always the weakness of human nature. But God has met this by sending His own Son to live in sinful human nature. But God has met this by sending His own Son to live in sinful human nature like ours. And, while Christ was dealing with sin, God condemned that sinful nature.
Williams’ Language of the People

For though the law could not do it, because it was made helpless through our lower nature, yet God, by sending His own Son in a body similar to that of our lower nature, and as a sacrifice for sin, passed sentence upon sin through His body,
