Romans 7:23

A different law (eteron nomon).
For the distinction between eterov and allov, see Galatians 1:6.

Warring against (antistrateuomenon).
Rare verb (Xenophon) to carry on a campaign against. Only here in N.T.

The law of my mind (twi nomwi tou noov).
The reflective intelligence Paul means by noov, "the inward man" of verse 22. It is this higher self that agrees that the law of God is good (12,16,22).

Bringing me into captivity (aixmalwtizonta).
See on this late and vivid verb for capture and slavery Luke 21:24; 2 Corinthians 10:5. Surely it is a tragic picture drawn by Paul with this outcome, "sold under sin" (14), "captivity to the law of sin" (23). The ancient writers (Plato, Ovid, Seneca, Epictetus) describe the same dual struggle in man between his conscience and his deeds.
