Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:1 - Or do you not know, brethren (for I am speaking to those who know the law), that the law has jurisdiction over a person as long as he lives?

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:2 - For the married woman is bound by law to her [fn]husband while he is living; but if her husband dies, she is released from the law [fn]concerning the husband.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:3 - So then, if while her husband is living she is joined to another man, she shall be called an adulteress; but if her husband dies, she is free from the law, so that she is not an adulteress though she is joined to another man.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:4 - Therefore, my brethren, you also were made to die to the Law through the body of Christ, so that you might be joined to another, to Him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit for God.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:5 - For while we were in the flesh, the sinful passions, which were aroused by the Law, were at work in [fn]the members of our body to bear fruit for death.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:6 - But now we have been released from the Law, having died to that by which we were bound, so that we serve in newness of the [fn]Spirit and not in oldness of the letter.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:7 - What shall we say then? Is the Law sin? May it never be! On the contrary, I would not have come to know sin except [fn]through the Law; for I would not have known about [fn]coveting if the Law had not said, “YOU SHALL NOT [fn]COVET.”

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:8 - But sin, taking opportunity through the commandment, produced in me [fn]coveting of every kind; for apart [fn]from the Law sin is dead.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:9 - I was once alive apart [fn]from the Law; but when the commandment came, sin became alive and I died;

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:10 - and this commandment, which was [fn]to result in life, proved [fn]to result in death for me;

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:11 - for sin, taking an opportunity through the commandment, deceived me and through it killed me.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:12 - So then, the Law is holy, and the commandment is holy and righteous and good.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:13 - Therefore did that which is good become a cause of death for me? May it never be! Rather it was sin, in order that it might be shown to be sin by effecting my death through that which is good, so that through the commandment sin would become utterly sinful.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:14 - For we know that the Law is spiritual, but I am of flesh, sold [fn]into bondage to sin.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:15 - For what I am doing, I do not understand; for I am not practicing what I would like to do, but I am doing the very thing I hate.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:16 - But if I do the very thing I do not want to do, I agree with the Law, confessing that the Law is good.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:17 - So now, no longer am I the one doing it, but sin which dwells in me.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:18 - For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh; for the willing is present in me, but the doing of the good is not.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:19 - For the good that I want, I do not do, but I practice the very evil that I do not want.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:20 - But if I am doing the very thing I do not want, I am no longer the one doing it, but sin which dwells in me.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:21 - I find then the [fn]principle that evil is present in me, the one who wants to do good.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:22 - For I joyfully concur with the law of God [fn]in the inner man,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:23 - but I see a different law in [fn]the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner [fn]of the law of sin which is in my members.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:24 - Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from [fn]the body of this death?

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:25 - Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, on the one hand I myself with my mind am serving the law of God, but on the other, with my flesh the law of sin.
