Try this:

# test data
set.seed(1)
mat <- matrix(rnorm(900), nc = 9)
colnames(mat) <- letters[1:9]
DF <- as.data.frame(mat)

# run lm's and display coefs
for(i in seq(1, 5, 2)) {

	dat <- cbind(z = DF[,i] - DF[,i+1], DF[7:9])
	Coef <- coef(lm(z ~., dat))
	cat("y: DF[,", i, "] - DF[,", i+1, "], coef: ", Coef, "\n")
}
