Romans 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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 - 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.
8 - But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. For without the law sin [was] dead.
9 - For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died.
10 - And the commandment, which [was ordained] to life, I found [to be] unto death.
11 - For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew [me].
12 - Wherefore the law [is] holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.
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.
14 - For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.
15 - For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.
16 - If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that [it is] good.
17 - Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
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.
19 - For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
20 - Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
21 - I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.
22 - For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:
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.
24 - O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
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.
