Romans 7

TMB 1 Know ye not, brethren (for I speak to those who know the law), how the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth? NIV 1 Do you not know, brothers--for I am speaking to men who know the law--that the law has authority over a man only as long as he lives? TMB 2 For the woman who hath a 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 the husband. NIV 2 For example, by law a married woman is bound to her husband as long as he is alive, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law of marriage. TMB 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. NIV 3 So then, if she marries another man while her husband is still alive, she is called an adulteress. But if her husband dies, she is released from that law and is not an adulteress, even though she marries another man. TMB 4 Therefore, my brethren, ye also have 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. NIV 4 So, my brothers, you also died to the law through the body of Christ, that you might belong to another, to him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit to God. TMB 5 For when we were in the flesh, the passions of sins, which were by the law, worked in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. NIV 5 For when we were controlled by the sinful nature, the sinful passions aroused by the law were at work in our bodies, so that we bore fruit for death. TMB 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. NIV 6 But now, by dying to what once bound us, we have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of the written code. TMB 7 What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid! Nay, I would not have known sin, but through the law; for I would not have known lust, except that the law had said, "Thou shalt not covet." NIV 7 What shall we say, then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! Indeed I would not have known what sin was except through the law. For I would not have known what coveting really was if the law had not said, "Do not covet." TMB 8 But sin, taking occasion through the commandment, wrought in me all manner of concupiscence; for without the law sin was dead. NIV 8 But sin, seizing the opportunity afforded by the commandment, produced in me every kind of covetous desire. For apart from law, sin is dead. TMB 9 For I was alive apart from the law once, but when the commandment came, sin revived and I died; NIV 9 Once I was alive apart from law; but when the commandment came, sin sprang to life and I died. TMB 10 and the commandment, which was ordained to bring life, I found to be unto death. NIV 10 I found that the very commandment that was intended to bring life actually brought death. TMB 11 For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me and by it slew me. NIV 11 For sin, seizing the opportunity afforded by the commandment, deceived me, and through the commandment put me to death. TMB 12 Therefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy and just and good. NIV 12 So then, the law is holy, and the commandment is holy, righteous and good. TMB 13 Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid! But sin, that it might appear as sin, was working death in me by that which is good, that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful. NIV 13 Did that which is good, then, become death to me? By no means! But in order that sin might be recognized as sin, it produced death in me through what was good, so that through the commandment sin might become utterly sinful. TMB 14 For we know that the law is spiritual; but I am carnal, sold under sin. NIV 14 We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. TMB 15 For that which I do, I know not. For what I would do, that do I not; but what I hate, that I do. NIV 15 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. TMB 16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law, that it is good. NIV 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. TMB 17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. NIV 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. TMB 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. NIV 18 I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. TMB 19 For the good that I would do, I do not; but the evil which I would not do, that I do. NIV 19 For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. TMB 20 Now if I do that which I would not do, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. NIV 20 Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it. TMB 21 I find then a law that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. NIV 21 So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. TMB 22 For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. NIV 22 For in my inner being I delight in God's law; TMB 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. NIV 23 but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. TMB 24 O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death? NIV 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? TMB 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. NIV 25 Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God's law, but in the sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.
