KnowG50 you not, brothers,G80 (for I speakG2980 to them that knowG1097 the law,G3551) how that the lawG3551 has dominionG2961 over a manG444 as longG5550 as he lives?G2198
For the womanG1135 which hasG5220 an husbandG5220 is boundG1210 by the lawG3551 to her husbandG435 so long as he lives;G2198 but ifG1437 the husbandG435 be dead,G599 she is loosedG2673 from the lawG3551 of her husband.G435
SoG686 thenG686 if,G1437 while her husbandG435 lives,G2198 she be marriedG1096 to anotherG2087 man,G435 she shall be calledG5537 an adulteress:G3428 but ifG1437 her husbandG435 be dead,G599 she is freeG1658 from that law;G3551 so that she is noG3361 adulteress,G3428 though she be marriedG1096 to anotherG2087 man.G435
Why,G5620 my brothers,G80 you alsoG2532 are becomeG2289 deadG2289 to the lawG3551 by the bodyG4983 of Christ;G5547 that you should be marriedG1096 to another,G2087 even to him who is raisedG1453 from the dead,G3498 that we should bringG2592 forth fruitG2592 to God.G2316
For whenG3753 we were in the flesh,G4561 the motionsG3804 of sins,G266 whichG3588 were by the law,G3551 did workG1754 in our membersG3196 to bringG2592 forth fruitG2592 to death.G2288
But nowG3570 we are deliveredG2673 from the law,G3551 that being deadG599 whereinG1722 G3757 we were held;G2722 that we should serveG1398 in newnessG2538 of spirit,G4151 and not in the oldnessG3821 of the letter.G1121
WhatG5101 shall we sayG2046 then?G3767 Is the lawG3551 sin?G266 GodG3361 G1096 forbid.G3361 G1096 No,G235 I had not knownG1097 sin,G266 but by the law:G3551 for I had not knownG1492 lust,G1939 exceptG1508 the lawG3551 had said,G3004 You shall not covet.G1937
But sin,G266 takingG2983 occasionG874 by the commandment,G1785 workedG2716 in me allG3956 manner of concupiscence.G1939 For withoutG5565 the lawG3551 sinG266 was dead.G3498
For I was aliveG2198 withoutG5565 the lawG3551 once:G4218 but when the commandmentG1785 came,G2064 sinG266 revived,G326 and I died.G599
And the commandment,G1785 whichG3588 was ordained to life,G2222 I foundG2147 to be to death.G2288
For sin,G266 takingG2983 occasionG874 by the commandment,G1785 deceivedG1818 me, and by it slewG615 me.
WhyG5620 the lawG3551 is holy,G40 and the commandmentG1785 holy,G40 and just,G1342 and good.G18
Was thenG3767 that which is goodG18 madeG1096 deathG2288 to me? GodG3361 G1096 forbid.G3361 G1096 But sin,G266 that it might appearG5316 sin,G266 workingG2716 deathG2288 in me by that which is good;G18 that sinG266 by the commandmentG1785 might becomeG1096 exceedingG2596 G5236 sinful.G268
For we knowG1492 that the lawG3551 is spiritual:G4152 but I amG1510 carnal,G4559 soldG4097 underG5259 sin.G266
For that whichG3739 I doG2716 I allowG1097 not: for whatG3739 I would,G2309 that doG4238 I not; but whatG3739 I hate,G3404 that doG4160 I.
IfG1487 thenG1161 I doG4160 that whichG3739 I wouldG2309 not, I consentG4852 to the lawG3551 that it is good.G2570
NowG3570 thenG1161 it is noG3765 moreG2089 I that doG2716 it, but sinG266 that dwellsG3611 in me.
For I knowG1492 that in me (that is, in my flesh,G4561) dwellsG3611 noG3756 goodG18 thing: for to willG2309 is presentG3873 with me; but how to performG2716 that which is goodG2570 I findG2147 not.
For the goodG18 that I wouldG2309 I doG4160 not: but the evilG2556 whichG3739 I wouldG2309 not, that I do.G4238
NowG1161 ifG1487 I doG4160 that I wouldG2309 not, it is noG3765 moreG2089 I that doG2716 it, but sinG266 that dwellsG3611 in me.
I findG2147 thenG686 a law,G3551 that, when I wouldG2309 doG4160 good,G2570 evilG2556 is presentG3873 with me.
For I delightG4913 in the lawG3551 of GodG2316 afterG2596 the inwardG2080 man:G444
But I seeG991 anotherG2087 lawG3551 in my members,G3196 warringG497 againstG497 the lawG3551 of my mind,G3563 and bringingG163 me into captivityG163 to the lawG3551 of sinG266 whichG3588 is in my members.G3196
O wretchedG5005 manG444 that I am! whoG5101 shall deliverG4506 me from the bodyG4983 of thisG5127 death?G2288
I thankG2168 GodG2316 throughG1223 JesusG2424 ChristG5547 our Lord.G2962 SoG686 thenG686 with the mindG3563 I myself serveG1398 the lawG3551 of God;G2316 but with the fleshG4561 the lawG3551 of sin.G266
