Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:1 - Are ye ignorant, brethren, (for I speak to those knowing law,) that law rules over a man as long as he lives?

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:2 - For the married woman is bound by law to her husband so long as he is alive; but if the husband should die, she is clear from the law of the husband:

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:3 - so then, the husband being alive, she shall be called an adulteress if she be to another man; but if the husband should die, she is free from the law, so as not to be an adulteress, though she be to another man.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:4 - So that, my brethren, *ye* also have been made dead to the law by the body of the Christ, to be to another, who has been raised up from among the dead, in order that we might bear fruit to God.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:5 - For when we were in the flesh the passions of sins, which were by the law, wrought in our members to bring forth fruit to death;

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:6 - but now we are clear from the law, having died in that in which we were held, so that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in oldness of letter.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:7 - What shall we say then? is the law sin? Far be the thought. But I had not known sin, unless by law: for I had not had conscience also of lust unless the law had said, Thou shalt not lust;

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:8 - but sin, getting a point of attack by the commandment, wrought in me every lust; for without law sin was dead.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:9 - But *I* was alive without law once; but the commandment having come, sin revived, but *I* died.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:10 - And the commandment, which was for life, was found, as to me, itself to be unto death:

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:11 - for sin, getting a point of attack by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:12 - So that the law indeed is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:13 - Did then that which is good become death to me? Far be the thought. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death to me by that which is good; in order that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:14 - For we know that the law is spiritual: but *I* am fleshly, sold under sin.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:15 - For that which I do, I do not own: for not what I will, this I do; but what I hate, this I practise.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:16 - But if what I do not will, this I practise, I consent to the law that it is right.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:17 - Now then it is no longer *I* that do it, but the sin that dwells in me.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:18 - For I know that in me, that is, in my flesh, good does not dwell: for to will is there with me, but to do right I find not.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:19 - For I do not practise the good that I will; but the evil I do not will, that I do.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:20 - But if what *I* do not will, this I practise, it is no longer *I* that do it, but the sin that dwells in me.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:21 - I find then the law upon *me* who will to practise what is right, that with *me* evil is there.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:22 - For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man:

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:23 - but I see another law in my members, warring in opposition to the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which exists in my members.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:24 - O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me out of this body of death?

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:25 - I thank God, through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then *I* *myself* with the mind serve God's law; but with the flesh sin's law.
