Romans Chapter 7
7:1 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how
that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?
7:2 For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her
husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed
from the law of her husband.
7:3 So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man,
she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is
free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married
to another man.
7:4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the
body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is
raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
7:5 For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by
the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.
7:6 But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we
were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the
oldness of the letter.
7:7 What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not
known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had
said, Thou shalt not covet.
7:8 But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all
manner of concupiscence. For without the law sin was dead.
7:9 For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came,
sin revived, and I died.
7:10 And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto
7:11 For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it
7:12 Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and
7:13 Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But
sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is
good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.
7:14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under
7:15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not;
but what I hate, that do I.
7:16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it
7:17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good
thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is
good I find not.
7:19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not,
that I do.
7:20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin
that dwelleth in me.
7:21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with
7:22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:
7:23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my
mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my
7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of
7:25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I
myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
Go ye therefore, and teach
all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, and of
the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
