Romans 7

KJV 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? NIV 1 Do you not know, brothers and sisters—for I am speaking to those who know the law—that the law has authority over someone only as long as that person lives? KJV 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. 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 that binds her to him. KJV 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 has sexual relations with 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 if she marries another man. KJV 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. NIV 4 So, my brothers and sisters, 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 for God. KJV 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. NIV 5 For when we were in the realm of the flesh, the sinful passions aroused by the law were at work in us, so that we bore fruit for death. KJV 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. KJV 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. NIV 7 What shall we say, then? Is the law sinful? Certainly not! Nevertheless, I would not have known what sin was had it not been for the law. For I would not have known what coveting really was if the law had not said, “You shall not covet.” KJV 8 But sin, taking occasion by 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 coveting. For apart from the law, sin was dead. KJV 9 For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died. NIV 9 Once I was alive apart from the law; but when the commandment came, sin sprang to life and I died. KJV 10 And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death. NIV 10 I found that the very commandment that was intended to bring life actually brought death. KJV 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. KJV 12 Wherefore 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. KJV 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. NIV 13 Did that which is good, then, become death to me? By no means! Nevertheless, in order that sin might be recognized as sin, it used what is good to bring about my death, so that through the commandment sin might become utterly sinful. KJV 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. KJV 15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. 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. KJV 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. KJV 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. KJV 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 For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. KJV 19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. NIV 19 For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. KJV 20 Now if I do that I would not, 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. KJV 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: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. KJV 22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: NIV 22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; KJV 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 me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. KJV 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 that is subject to death? KJV 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, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.
