045:007:001
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?


045:007:002
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.


045:007:003
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.


045:007:004
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.


045:007:005
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.


045:007:006
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.


045:007:007
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.


045:007:008
But sin,
taking occasion by the commandment,
wrought in me all manner of concupiscence.
For without the law sin was dead.


045:007:009
For I was alive without the law once:
but when the commandment came,
sin revived,
and I died.


045:007:010
And the commandment,
which was ordained to life,
I found to be unto death.


045:007:011
For sin,
taking occasion by the commandment,
deceived me,
and by it slew me.


045:007:012
Wherefore the law is holy,
and the commandment holy,
and just,
and good.


045:007:013
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.


045:007:014
For we know that the law is spiritual:
but I am carnal,
sold under sin.


045:007:015
For that which I do I allow not:
for what I would,
that do I not;
but what I hate,
that do I.


045:007:016
If then I do that which I would not,
I consent unto the law that it is good.


045:007:017
Now then it is no more I that do it,
but sin that dwelleth in me.


045:007:018
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.


045:007:019
For the good that I would I do not:
but the evil which I would not,
that I do.


045:007:020
Now if I do that I would not,
it is no more I that do it,
but sin that dwelleth in me.


045:007:021
I find then a law,
that,
when I would do good,
evil is present with me.


045:007:022
For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:


045:007:023
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.


045:007:024
O wretched man that I am!
who shall deliver me from the body of this death?


045:007:025
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.
