Romans 7 ©
No law having power over a person longer than he liveth, we therefore, being become dead to the law by the body of Christ, are left free to place ourselves under a happier dispensation. For the law through the prevalency of corrupt passions could only serve as an instrument of sin unto death; although it be in itself holy, and just, and good; as is manifest by our reason approving the precepts of it, whilst our depraved nature is unable to put them in practice. The wretchedness of man in such a situation, and God's mercy in his deliverance from it through Christ.
dSo then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: ebut if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.
Wherefore, my brethren, fye also are become dead to the law gby the body of Christ; that hye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, ithat we should bring forth fruit unto God.
fFor the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
