Romans 7 ©
1 No law having power over a person longer than he liveth, 4 we therefore, being become dead to the law by the body of Christ, are left free to place ourselves under a happier dispensation. 5 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; 14 as is manifest by our reason approving the precepts of it, whilst our depraved nature is unable to put them in practice. 24 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.
But sin, ptaking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all *manner of *concupiscence. qFor without the law sin was dead.
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.
mI thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with nthe mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
