Luke.8:20 20ἀπηγγέλη δὲ αὐτῷ, μήτηρ σου καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοί σου ἑστήκασιν ἔξω, ἰδεῖν θέλοντές σε. 20 {NEQ} Someone told Jesus , Your {NEQ} mother and your {NEQ} brothers are outside , and they want to see you .

Luke.9:24 24ὃς γὰρ ἂν θέλῃ τὴν ψυχὴν αὐτοῦ σῶσαι, ἀπολέσει αὐτήν. ὃς δ᾽ ἂν ἀπολέσῃ τὴν ψυχὴν αὐτοῦ ἕνεκεν ἐμοῦ, οὗτος σώσει αὐτήν. 24 {NEQ} If you try to hang on to your {NEQ} life , you will lose it . But if you give up your {NEQ} life for my sake , you will save it .

Luke.10:24 24λέγω γὰρ ὑμῖν, ὅτι πολλοὶ προφῆται καὶ βασιλεῖς ἠθέλησαν ἰδεῖν ὑμεῖς βλέπετε, καὶ οὐκ εἶδαν· καὶ ἀκοῦσαι ἀκούετε, καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσαν. 24 {NEQ} I tell you , {NEQ} many prophets and kings longed to see what you see , but they didn’t see it . And they longed to hear what you hear , but they didn’t hear it .
Luke.10:29 29 δὲ θέλων δικαιῶσαι ἑαυτόν, εἶπεν πρὸς τὸν Ἰησοῦν, Καὶ τίς ἐστίν μου πλησίον; 29 {NEQ} The man wanted to justify his actions , so he asked {NEQ} Jesus , And who is my neighbor ?
Luke.12:49 49πῦρ ἦλθον βαλεῖν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν, καὶ τί θέλω εἰ ἤδη ἀνήφθη. 49 I have come to set the world on fire , and I wish it were already burning !
Luke.13:31 31ἐν αὐτῇ τῇ ὥρᾳ προσῆλθάν τινες Φαρισαῖοι λέγοντες αὐτῷ, ̓Έξελθε καὶ πορεύου ἐντεῦθεν· ὅτι Ἡρῴδης θέλει σε ἀποκτεῖναι. 31 At that {NEQ} time some {NEQ} Pharisees said to him , Get away from here if you want to live ! {NEQ} Herod Antipas wants to kill you !
Luke.13:34 34Ἰερουσαλήμ, Ἰερουσαλήμ, ἀποκτείνουσα τοὺς προφήτας καὶ λιθοβολοῦσα τοὺς ἀπεσταλμένους πρὸς αὐτήν. ποσάκις ἠθέλησα ἐπισυνάξαι τὰ τέκνα σου ὃν τρόπον ὄρνις τὴν ἑαυτῆς νοσσιὰν ὑπὸ τὰς πτέρυγας, καὶ οὐκ ἠθελήσατε. 34 O Jerusalem , Jerusalem , the city that kills the prophets and stones God’s messengers {RPT} ! How often I have wanted to gather your {NEQ} children together as a hen protects {NEQ} her chicks beneath her wings , but you wouldn’t let me .
Luke.14:28 28τίς γὰρ ἐξ ὑμῶν θέλων πύργον οἰκοδομῆσαι οὐχὶ πρῶτον καθίσας ψηφίζει τὴν δαπάνην εἰ ἔχει εἰς ἀπαρτισμόν; 28 But don’t begin until you count the cost . For who would begin construction of a building without first {NEQ} calculating the cost to see if there is enough money to finish it ?
Luke.15:28 28ὠργίσθη δὲ καὶ οὐκ ἤθελεν εἰσελθεῖν. δὲ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ ἐξελθὼν παρεκάλει αὐτόν, 28 {NEQ} The older brother was angry and wouldn’t go in . {NEQ} His {NEQ} father came out and begged him ,
Luke.16:26 26καὶ ἐν πᾶσι τούτοις, μεταξὺ ἡμῶν καὶ ὑμῶν χάσμα μέγα ἐστήρικται· ὅπως οἱ θέλοντες διαβῆναι ἔνθεν πρὸς ὑμᾶς μὴ δύνωνται, μηδὲ ἐκεῖθεν πρὸς ἡμᾶς διαπερῶσιν. 26 And besides , there is a great chasm separating us . {NEQ} {NEQ} {NEQ} No one can cross over to you from here , and no one can cross over to us from there .

Luke.18:13 13 δὲ τελώνης μακρόθεν ἑστὼς οὐκ ἤθελεν οὐδὲ τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς ἐπᾶραι εἰς τὸν οὐρανόν. ἀλλ᾽ ἔτυπτε τὸ στῆθος αὐτοῦ, λέγων, θεός, ἱλάσθητί μοι, τῷ ἁμαρτωλῷ. 13 But the tax collector stood at a distance and dared not even lift his eyes to {NEQ} heaven as he prayed . Instead , he beat his {NEQ} chest in sorrow , saying , {NEQ} O God , be merciful to me , for I am a sinner .
Luke.18:41 41Τί σοι θέλεις ποιήσω; δὲ εἶπεν, Κύριε, ἵνα ἀναβλέψω. 41 What do you want me to do for you ? Lord , he {NEQ} said , {NEQ} I want to see !
Luke.19:14 14οἱ δὲ πολῖται αὐτοῦ ἐμίσουν αὐτόν, καὶ ἀπέστειλαν πρεσβείαν ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ λέγοντες, Οὐ θέλομεν τοῦτον βασιλεῦσαι ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς. 14 But his {NEQ} people hated him and sent a delegation after him to say , We do not want him to be our king .
Luke.19:27 27πλὴν τοὺς ἐχθρούς μου τούτους τοὺς μὴ θελήσαντάς με βασιλεῦσαι ἐπ᾽ αὐτούς— ἀγάγετε ὧδε καὶ κατασφάξατε αὐτοὺς ἔμπροσθέν μου. 27 And as for these {NEQ} enemies of mine who didn’t want me to be their king bring them in and execute them right here in front of me .
Luke.20:46 46Προσέχετε ἀπὸ τῶν γραμματέων· τῶν θελόντων περιπατεῖν ἐν στολαῖς καὶ φιλούντων ἀσπασμοὺς ἐν ταῖς ἀγοραῖς· καὶ πρωτοκαθεδρίας ἐν ταῖς συναγωγαῖς καὶ πρωτοκλισίας ἐν τοῖς δείπνοις· 46 Beware of these teachers of religious law !

And how they love the seats of honor in the synagogues and the head table at {NEQ} banquets .
Luke.22:9 9οἱ δὲ εἶπαν αὐτῷ, Ποῦ θέλεις ἑτοιμάσωμεν; 9 Where do you want us to prepare it ? {NEQ} they asked him .
Luke.23:8 8 δὲ Ἡρῴδης ἰδὼν τὸν Ἰησοῦν ἐχάρη λίαν, ἦν γὰρ ἐξ ἱκανῶν χρόνων θέλων ἰδεῖν αὐτὸν διὰ τὸ ἀκούειν περὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἤλπιζέν τι σημεῖον ἰδεῖν ὑπ᾽ αὐτοῦ γινόμενον. 8 {NEQ} {NEQ} Herod {NEQ} was delighted at the opportunity to see {NEQ} Jesus , because he had heard about him and had been hoping {RPT} for a long time to see him perform {RPT} {RPT} a miracle .
Luke.23:20 20πάλιν δὲ Πειλᾶτος προσεφώνησεν αὐτοῖς, θέλων ἀπολῦσαι τὸν Ἰησοῦν. 20 {NEQ} Pilate {NEQ} {NEQ} argued with them , because he wanted to release {NEQ} Jesus .
John.1:43 43τῇ ἐπαύριον ἠθέλησεν ἐξελθεῖν εἰς τὴν Γαλιλαίαν. καὶ εὑρίσκει Φίλιππον καὶ λέγει αὐτῷ Ἰησοῦς, Ἀκολούθει μοι. 43 The next day Jesus decided to go to {NEQ} Galilee . {NEQ} He found Philip and said to him , Come , follow me .
John.3:8 8τὸ πνεῦμα ὅπου θέλει πνεῖ· καὶ τὴν φωνὴν αὐτοῦ ἀκούεις. ἀλλ᾽ οὐκ οἶδας πόθεν ἔρχεται καὶ ποῦ ὑπάγει· οὕτως ἐστὶν πᾶς γεγεννημένος ἐκ τοῦ πνεύματος. 8 The wind blows wherever it wants . Just as you can hear the wind but can’t tell where it comes from or where it is going , so you can’t explain how people are born of the Spirit .
John.5:6 6τοῦτον ἰδὼν Ἰησοῦς κατακείμενον καὶ γνοὺς ὅτι πολὺν ἤδη χρόνον ἔχει, λέγει αὐτῷ, Θέλεις ὑγιὴς γενέσθαι; 6 When {NEQ} Jesus saw him and knew {NEQ} he had been ill for a long time , he asked him , Would you like to get well ?
John.5:21 21ὥσπερ γὰρ πατὴρ ἐγείρει τοὺς νεκροὺς καὶ ζωοποιεῖ, οὕτως καὶ υἱὸς οὓς θέλει ζωοποιεῖ. 21 For just as the Father {NEQ} gives life to those he raises from the dead , so the Son gives life to anyone he wants .
John.5:35 35ἐκεῖνος ἦν λύχνος καιόμενος καὶ φαίνων, ὑμεῖς δὲ ἠθελήσατε ἀγαλλιαθῆναι πρὸς ὥραν ἐν τῷ φωτὶ αὐτοῦ. 35 John was like a {RPT} burning and shining lamp , and you were excited for a while about {NEQ} his message .
John.5:40 40καὶ οὐ θέλετε ἐλθεῖν πρός με ἵνα ζωὴν ἔχητε. 40 Yet you refuse to come to me to receive this life .
John.6:11 11ἔλαβεν οὖν τοὺς ἄρτους Ἰησοῦς, καὶ εὐχαριστήσας, διέδωκεν τοῖς ἀνακειμένοις· ὁμοίως καὶ ἐκ τῶν ὀψαρίων· ὅσον ἤθελον. 11   Then {NEQ} Jesus took the loaves , {NEQ} gave thanks to God , and distributed them to the people . Afterward he did the same with the fish . And they all ate as much as they wanted .
John.6:21 21ἤθελον οὖν λαβεῖν αὐτὸν εἰς τὸ πλοῖον, καὶ εὐθέως ἐγένετο τὸ πλοῖον ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς εἰς ἣν ὑπῆγον. 21 Then they were eager to let him in the boat , and immediately they arrived at their destination {RPT} !
John.6:67 67εἶπεν οὖν Ἰησοῦς τοῖς δώδεκα, Μὴ καὶ ὑμεῖς θέλετε ὑπάγειν; 67 Then {NEQ} Jesus turned to the Twelve and asked , Are you also going to leave ?
John.7:1 1καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα, περιεπάτει Ἰησοῦς ἐν τῇ Γαλιλαίᾳ. οὐ γὰρ ἤθελεν ἐν τῇ Ἰουδαίᾳ περιπατεῖν ὅτι ἐζήτουν αὐτὸν οἱ Ἰουδαῖοι ἀποκτεῖναι. 7:1 {NEQ} After this , {NEQ} Jesus traveled around {NEQ} {NEQ} Galilee . {NEQ} He wanted to stay out of {NEQ} {NEQ} Judea , {NEQ} where the Jewish leaders were plotting his death .
John.7:17 17ἐάν τις θέλῃ τὸ θέλημα αὐτοῦ ποιεῖν γνώσεται περὶ τῆς διδαχῆς πότερον ἐκ τοῦ θεοῦ ἐστὶν ἐγὼ ἀπ᾽ ἐμαυτοῦ λαλῶ. 17 {NEQ} Anyone who wants to do the will of God will know whether my {NEQ} teaching is from {NEQ} God or is {RPT} merely my own .
John.7:44 44τινὲς δὲ ἤθελον ἐξ αὐτῶν πιάσαι αὐτόν, ἀλλ᾽ οὐδεὶς ἔβαλεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν τὰς χεῖρας. 44 Some even wanted him arrested , but no one laid a hand on him .
John.8:44 44ὑμεῖς ἐκ τοῦ πατρὸς τοῦ διαβόλου ἐστέ, καὶ τὰς ἐπιθυμίας τοῦ πατρὸς ὑμῶν θέλετε ποιεῖν. ἐκεῖνος ἀνθρωποκτόνος ἦν ἀπ᾽ ἀρχῆς· καὶ ἐν τῇ ἀληθείᾳ οὐκ ἔστηκεν, ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν ἀλήθεια ἐν αὐτῷ. ὅταν λαλῇ τὸ ψεῦδος, ἐκ τῶν ἰδίων λαλεῖ· ὅτι ψεύστης ἐστὶν καὶ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ. 44 For you are the children of your father the devil , and you love to do the evil things he does . He was a murderer from the beginning . {NEQ} He has always hated the truth , because there is no truth in him . When he lies , it is consistent with his character ; for he is a liar and the father of lies .
John.9:27 27ἀπεκρίθη αὐτοῖς, Εἶπον ὑμῖν ἤδη· καὶ οὐκ ἠκούσατε; τί πάλιν θέλετε ἀκούειν; μὴ καὶ ὑμεῖς θέλετε αὐτοῦ μαθηταὶ γενέσθαι; 27 Look ! the man exclaimed {RPT} . I told you once . {NEQ} Didn’t you listen ? Why do you want to hear it again ? {NEQ} Do you want to become his disciples , too ?
John.12:21 21οὗτοι οὖν προσῆλθαν Φιλίππῳ, τῷ ἀπὸ Βηθσαϊδὰ τῆς Γαλιλαίας. καὶ ἠρώτων αὐτὸν λέγοντες, Κύριε, θέλομεν τὸν Ἰησοῦν ἰδεῖν. 21 {RPT} {NEQ} paid a visit to Philip , who was from Bethsaida in {NEQ} Galilee . They said , {RPT} Sir , we want to meet {NEQ} Jesus .
John.15:7 7ἐὰν μείνητε ἐν ἐμοὶ καὶ τὰ ῥήματά μου ἐν ὑμῖν μείνῃ, ἐὰν θέλητε αἰτήσασθε, καὶ γενήσεται ὑμῖν. 7 But if you remain in me and my {NEQ} words remain in you , you may ask for anything you want , and it will be granted {RPT} !
John.16:19 19ἔγνω Ἰησοῦς ὅτι ἤθελον αὐτὸν ἐρωτᾶν, καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, Περὶ τούτου ζητεῖτε μετ᾽ ἀλλήλων; ὅτι εἶπον, Μικρὸν καὶ οὐ θεωρεῖτέ με, καί, πάλιν μικρόν, καὶ ὄψεσθέ με. 19 Jesus realized {NEQ} they wanted to ask him about it , so he said {RPT} , Are you asking yourselves what I meant ? {NEQ} I said in a little while you {NEQ} won’t see me , but a little while after that you will see me again .
John.17:24 24πατήρ, δέδωκάς μοι θέλω ἵνα ὅπου εἰμὶ ἐγὼ κἀκεῖνοι ὦσιν μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ· ἵνα θεωρῶσιν τὴν δόξαν τὴν ἐμὴν ἣν δέδωκάς μοι ὅτι ἠγάπησάς με πρὸ καταβολῆς κόσμου. 24 Father , I want these whom you have given me to be with me {NEQ} where I am . Then they can see all the glory {RPT} {RPT} {RPT} you gave me because you loved me even before the world began !
John.21:18 18ἀμὴν ἀμὴν λέγω σοι, ὅτε ἦς νεώτερος, ἐζώννυες σεαυτὸν καὶ περιεπάτεις ὅπου ἤθελες· ὅταν δὲ γηράσῃς, ἐκτενεῖς τὰς χεῖράς σου, καὶ ἄλλοι σε ζώσουσιν καὶ οἴσει ὅπου οὐ θέλεις. 18 I tell you the truth , when you were young , you were able to do as you liked ; you dressed yourself and went wherever you wanted to go . But when you are old , you will stretch out your {NEQ} hands , and others  *  will dress you and take you where you don’t want to go .
John.21:22 22λέγει αὐτῷ Ἰησοῦς, Ἐὰν αὐτὸν θέλω μένειν ἕως ἔρχομαι, τί πρὸς σέ; σύ, μοι ἀκολούθει. 22 {NEQ} Jesus replied {RPT} , If I want him to remain alive until I return , what is that to you ? As for you , follow me .
John.21:23 23ἐξῆλθεν οὖν οὗτος λόγος εἰς τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς ὅτι μαθητὴς ἐκεῖνος οὐκ ἀποθνῄσκει. οὐκ εἶπεν δὲ αὐτῷ Ἰησοῦς ὅτι οὐκ ἀποθνῄσκει, Ἀλλ᾽ ἐὰν αὐτὸν θέλω μένειν ἕως ἔρχομαι, τί πρὸς σέ; 23 So the rumor spread among the community of believers  *  that this {NEQ} disciple wouldn’t die . But that isn’t what {NEQ} Jesus said {RPT} at all . He only said , If I want him to remain alive until I return , what is that to you ?
Acts.2:12 12ἐξίσταντο δὲ πάντες καὶ διηποροῦντο· ἄλλος πρὸς ἄλλον λέγοντες, Τί θέλει τοῦτο εἶναι; 12 {NEQ} They stood there amazed and perplexed . What can this mean ? they asked each other .
Acts.7:28 28μὴ ἀνελεῖν με σὺ θέλεις ὃν τρόπον ἀνεῖλες ἐχθὲς τὸν Αἰγύπτιον; 28 {NEQ} Are you going to kill me as you killed that Egyptian yesterday ?
Acts.7:39 39 οὐκ ἠθέλησαν ὑπήκοοι γενέσθαι οἱ πατέρες ἡμῶν· ἀλλὰ ἀπώσαντο καὶ ἐστράφησαν ἐν ταῖς καρδίαις αὐτῶν εἰς Αἴγυπτον. 39 But our {NEQ} ancestors refused to listen to Moses . {NEQ} They rejected him and wanted to return to Egypt .
Acts.10:10 10ἐγένετο δὲ πρόσπεινος καὶ ἤθελεν γεύσασθαι. παρασκευαζόντων δὲ αὐτῶν, ἐγένετο ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν ἔκστασις. 10 and he was hungry . But while a meal was being prepared {RPT} , he fell into a trance .
Acts.14:13 13 τε ἱερεὺς τοῦ Διὸς τοῦ ὄντος πρὸ τῆς πόλεως. ταύρους καὶ στέμματα ἐπὶ τοὺς πυλῶνας, ἐνέγκας σὺν τοῖς ὄχλοις ἤθελεν θύειν. 13 Now the temple of {NEQ} Zeus {NEQ} was located just outside the town . So the priest of the temple and the crowd brought bulls and wreaths of flowers to the town gates , and they prepared to offer sacrifices to the apostles .
Acts.16:3 3τοῦτον ἠθέλησεν Παῦλος σὺν αὐτῷ ἐξελθεῖν· καὶ λαβὼν περιέτεμεν αὐτόν, διὰ τοὺς Ἰουδαίους τοὺς ὄντας ἐν τοῖς τόποις ἐκείνοις, ᾔδεισαν γὰρ ἅπαντες ὅτι ̔Έλλην πατὴρ αὐτοῦ ὑπῆρχεν. 3 so {NEQ} Paul wanted him to join them on their journey . In deference to the Jews {RPT} of the area , {NEQ} he arranged for Timothy to be circumcised before they left , for everyone knew that his {NEQ} father was a Greek .
Acts.17:18 18τινὲς δὲ καὶ τῶν Ἐπικουρείων καὶ Στωικῶν φιλοσόφων συνέβαλλον αὐτῷ· καί τινες ἔλεγον, Τί ἂν θέλοι σπερμολόγος οὗτος λέγειν; οἱ δέ Ξένων δαιμονίων δοκεῖ καταγγελεὺς εἶναι. ὅτι τὸν Ἰησοῦν καὶ τὴν ἀνάστασιν εὐηγγελίζετο. 18 He also had a debate with some of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers . When he told them about {NEQ} Jesus and his resurrection , {NEQ} {RPT} they said , What’s this {NEQ} babbler trying to say with these strange ideas he’s picked up ? Others said , He seems to be preaching about some foreign gods .
Acts.17:20 20ξενίζοντα γάρ τινα εἰσφέρεις εἰς τὰς ἀκοὰς ἡμῶν, βουλόμεθα οὖν γνῶναι τίνα θέλει ταῦτα εἶναι. 20 {NEQ} You are saying {RPT} some rather strange things {RPT} , and we want to know what it’s all about .
Acts.18:21 21ἀλλά, ἀποταξάμενος, καὶ εἰπών, Πάλιν ἀνακάμψω πρὸς ὑμᾶς, τοῦ θεοῦ θέλοντος. ἀνήχθη ἀπὸ τῆς Ἐφέσου· 21 As he left , however , {NEQ} he said , I will come back later {NEQ} {RPT} ,  *  {NEQ} God willing . Then he set sail from {NEQ} Ephesus .
Acts.19:33 33ἐκ δὲ τοῦ ὄχλου συνεβίβασαν Ἀλέξανδρον προβαλόντων αὐτὸν τῶν Ἰουδαίων. δὲ Ἀλέξανδρος κατασείσας τὴν χεῖρα ἤθελεν ἀπολογεῖσθαι τῷ δήμῳ. 33 The Jews {NEQ} in the crowd pushed Alexander forward and told him to explain the situation . {NEQ} He motioned for silence and tried to speak .
Acts.24:27 27διετίας δὲ πληρωθείσης, ἔλαβεν διάδοχον Φῆλιξ Πόρκιον Φῆστον· θέλων τε χάριτα καταθέσθαι τοῖς Ἰουδαίοις, Φῆλιξ κατέλιπε τὸν Παῦλον δεδεμένον. 27 {NEQ} After two years went by in this way , {NEQ} Felix was succeeded by Porcius Festus . And because {NEQ} Felix wanted to gain favor with the Jewish people , he left {NEQ} Paul in prison .
Acts.25:9 9 Φῆστος δέ, θέλων τοῖς Ἰουδαίοις χάριν καταθέσθαι, ἀποκριθεὶς τῷ Παύλῳ εἶπεν, Θέλεις εἰς Ἱεροσόλυμα ἀναβὰς ἐκεῖ περὶ τούτων κριθῆναι ἐπ᾽ ἐμοῦ; 9 Then {NEQ} Festus , wanting to please the Jews , asked him , Are you willing to go to Jerusalem and stand trial before me there ?
Acts.26:5 5προγινώσκοντές με ἄνωθεν, ἐὰν θέλωσι μαρτυρεῖν, ὅτι κατὰ τὴν ἀκριβεστάτην αἵρεσιν τῆς ἡμετέρας θρησκείας ἔζησα Φαρισαῖος. 5 If they would admit it , they know that I have been a member of the Pharisees , the strictest sect of our {NEQ} religion .
Rom.1:13 13οὐ θέλω δὲ ὑμᾶς ἀγνοεῖν, ἀδελφοί, ὅτι πολλάκις προεθέμην ἐλθεῖν πρὸς ὑμᾶς, καὶ ἐκωλύθην ἄχρι τοῦ δεῦρο· ἵνα τινὰ καρπὸν σχῶ καὶ ἐν ὑμῖν, καθὼς καὶ ἐν τοῖς λοιποῖς ἔθνεσιν. 13 I want {NEQ} you to know , dear brothers and sisters ,  *  that I planned many times to visit you , but I was prevented until now . {NEQ} I want to work among you {NEQ} and see {NEQ} spiritual fruit , just as I have seen among {NEQ} other Gentiles .
Rom.7:15 15 γὰρ κατεργάζομαι οὐ γινώσκω, οὐ γὰρ θέλω τοῦτο πράσσω· ἀλλ᾽ μισῶ τοῦτο ποιῶ. 15 {NEQ} I don’t really understand myself , for I {RPT} want to do what is right , but I don’t do it . Instead , {RPT} I do what I hate .
Rom.7:16 16εἰ δὲ οὐ θέλω τοῦτο ποιῶ, σύμφημι τῷ νόμῳ ὅτι καλός. 16 But if I know that what I am {RPT} doing is wrong , this shows that I agree that the law is good .
Rom.7:18 18οἶδα γὰρ ὅτι οὐκ οἰκεῖ ἐν ἐμοί, τοῦτ᾽ ἔστιν, ἐν τῇ σαρκί μου, ἀγαθόν· τὸ γὰρ θέλειν παράκειταί μοι, τὸ δὲ κατεργάζεσθαι τὸ καλὸν οὔ. 18 And I know that nothing good lives in me , that is , in my {NEQ} sinful nature .  *  {NEQ} I want to do what is right , but I can’t .
Rom.7:19 19οὐ γὰρ θέλω ποιῶ ἀγαθόν· ἀλλὰ οὐ θέλω κακόν, τοῦτο πράσσω. 19 {NEQ} I want to do what is good , but I don’t . I don’t want to do what is wrong , but I do it anyway .
Rom.7:20 20εἰ δὲ οὐ θέλω τοῦτο ποιῶ, οὐκέτι ἐγὼ κατεργάζομαι αὐτό· ἀλλὰ οἰκοῦσα ἐν ἐμοὶ ἁμαρτία. 20 But if I do what I don’t {RPT} want to do , I am not really the one doing wrong ; it is {NEQ} sin living in me that does it .
Rom.7:21 21εὑρίσκω ἄρα τὸν νόμον, τῷ θέλοντι ἐμοὶ ποιεῖν τὸ καλόν, ὅτι ἐμοὶ τὸ κακὸν παράκειται. 21 {NEQ} I have discovered this principle of life that {NEQ} when I want to do what is right , {NEQ} I inevitably do what is wrong .
Rom.9:16 16ἄρα οὖν οὐ τοῦ θέλοντος οὐδὲ τοῦ τρέχοντος· ἀλλὰ τοῦ ἐλεῶντος θεοῦ. 16 So it is God who decides {NEQ} to show mercy . {NEQ} We can neither choose it nor {RPT} work for it .
Rom.9:18 18ἄρα οὖν, ὃν θέλει ἐλεεῖ, ὃν δὲ θέλει σκληρύνει. 18 So you see , God chooses to show mercy to some , and he chooses to harden the hearts of others so they refuse to listen .
Rom.9:22 22εἰ δέ, θέλων θεὸς ἐνδείξασθαι τὴν ὀργὴν καὶ γνωρίσαι τὸ δυνατὸν αὐτοῦ, ἤνεγκεν ἐν πολλῇ μακροθυμίᾳ σκεύη ὀργῆς, κατηρτισμένα εἰς ἀπώλειαν. 22 In the same way , even though {NEQ} God has the right to show his anger and his {RPT} {NEQ} power , he is very patient with those on whom his anger falls , who are destined for destruction .
Rom.11:25 25οὐ γὰρ θέλω ὑμᾶς ἀγνοεῖν, ἀδελφοί, τὸ μυστήριον τοῦτο, ἵνα μὴ ἦτε παρ᾽ ἑαυτοῖς φρόνιμοι· ὅτι πώρωσις ἀπὸ μέρους τῷ Ἰσραὴλ γέγονεν, ἄχρι οὗ τὸ πλήρωμα τῶν ἐθνῶν εἰσέλθῃ. 25 {NEQ} I want you to understand this {NEQ} mystery , dear brothers and sisters ,  *  so that you will not feel proud about yourselves . {NEQ} Some of the people of Israel have hard hearts , but this will last only until the full number of {NEQ} Gentiles comes to Christ .
Rom.13:3 3οἱ γὰρ ἄρχοντες οὐκ εἰσὶν φόβος τῷ ἀγαθῷ ἔργῳ, ἀλλὰ τῷ κακῷ. θέλεις δὲ μὴ φοβεῖσθαι τὴν ἐξουσίαν; τὸ ἀγαθὸν ποίει καὶ ἕξεις ἔπαινον ἐξ αὐτῆς. 3 For the authorities do not strike fear in people who are doing right , but in those who are doing wrong . {NEQ} Would you like to live without fear of the authorities ? Do what is right , and {RPT} they will honor you .
Rom.16:19 19 γὰρ ὑμῶν ὑπακοὴ εἰς πάντας ἀφίκετο· ἐφ᾽ ὑμῖν οὖν χαίρω. θέλω δὲ ὑμᾶς σοφοὺς εἶναι εἰς τὸ ἀγαθὸν ἀκεραίους δὲ εἰς τὸ κακόν. 19 But everyone knows that you are {NEQ} obedient to the Lord . {NEQ} This makes me very happy . {NEQ} I want you to be wise in doing right and to stay innocent of any wrong .

1Cor.14:5 5θέλω δὲ πάντας ὑμᾶς λαλεῖν γλώσσαις, μᾶλλον δὲ ἵνα προφητεύητε· μείζων δὲ προφητεύων λαλῶν γλώσσαις, ἐκτὸς εἰ μὴ διερμηνεύῃ ἵνα ἐκκλησία οἰκοδομὴν λάβῃ. 5 {NEQ} I wish you could all speak in tongues , but even more I wish you could all prophesy .

Rather , we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by {NEQ} life .
2Cor.8:10 10καὶ γνώμην ἐν τούτῳ δίδωμι· τοῦτο γὰρ ὑμῖν συμφέρει, οἵτινες οὐ μόνον τὸ ποιῆσαι, ἀλλὰ καὶ τὸ θέλειν προενήρξασθε, ἀπὸ πέρυσι· 10 {NEQ} Here is my advice {NEQ} {NEQ} : {NEQ} It would be good for you to finish what you started a year ago . Last year you were the first who {NEQ} {NEQ} wanted to give , and you {NEQ} {NEQ} were the first to begin doing it .
2Cor.8:11 11νυνὶ δὲ καὶ τὸ ποιῆσαι ἐπιτελέσατε· ὅπως καθάπερ προθυμία τοῦ θέλειν οὕτως καὶ τὸ ἐπιτελέσαι ἐκ τοῦ ἔχειν. 11 Now you should finish what you started . Let the eagerness you showed in the beginning be matched now by your giving . Give in proportion to what you have .

2Cor.12:6 6ἐὰν γὰρ θελήσω καυχήσασθαι, οὐκ ἔσομαι ἄφρων, ἀλήθειαν γὰρ ἐρῶ· φείδομαι δέ, μή τις εἰς ἐμὲ λογίσηται ὑπὲρ βλέπει με ἀκούει τι ἐξ ἐμοῦ, 6 If I wanted to boast , I would be no fool in doing so , because I would be telling the truth . But I won’t do it , because I don’t want anyone to give me credit beyond what they can see in my life or hear in my message ,
2Cor.12:20 20φοβοῦμαι γὰρ μή πως ἐλθὼν οὐχ οἵους θέλω εὕρω ὑμᾶς, κἀγὼ εὑρεθῶ ὑμῖν οἷον οὐ θέλετε· μή πως ἔρις, ζῆλος, θυμοί, ἐριθείαι, καταλαλιαί, ψιθυρισμοί, φυσιώσεις, ἀκαταστασίαι· 20 For I am afraid that when I come I won’t like what I find {RPT} , and you won’t like my response {NEQ} .

Gal.5:17 17 γὰρ σὰρξ ἐπιθυμεῖ, κατὰ τοῦ πνεύματος· τὸ δὲ πνεῦμα κατὰ τῆς σαρκός· ταῦτα γὰρ ἀλλήλοις ἀντίκειται, ἵνα μὴ ἐὰν θέλητε ταῦτα ποιῆτε. 17 {NEQ} The sinful nature wants to do evil , which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants .

And this is the secret : {RPT} {NEQ} Christ lives in you . This gives you {NEQ} assurance {NEQ} of sharing his glory .
