Listen to the Bible

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

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:2 - For the woman who has a husband is bound by the law to her husband as long as he lives. But if the husband dies, she is released from the law of her husband.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:3 - So then if, while her husband lives, she marries another man, she will be called an adulteress; but if her husband dies, she is free from that law, so that she is no adulteress, though she has married another man.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:4 - Therefore, my brethren, you also have become dead to the law through the body of Christ, that you may be married to another—to Him who was raised from the dead, that we should bear fruit to God.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:5 - For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:6 - But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:7 - What shall we say then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! On the contrary, I would not have known sin except through the law. For I would not have known covetousness unless the law had said, “You shall not covet.”[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:8 - But sin, taking opportunity by the commandment, produced in me all manner of evil desire. For apart from the law sin was dead.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:9 - I was alive once without the law, but when the commandment came, sin revived and I died.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:10 - And the commandment, which was to bring life, I found to bring death.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:11 - For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it killed me.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:13 - Has then what is good become death to me? Certainly not! But sin, that it might appear sin, was producing death in me through what is good, so that sin through the commandment might become exceedingly sinful.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:15 - For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:16 - If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:17 - But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:18 - For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:20 - Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:21 - I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good.

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 against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 7:24 - O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 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.
