Romans 7

Rom 7:1 Sisters and brothers, how can you not know— for I am talking to those who know law— that the law only has jurisdiction over a person while they are alive?
Rom 7:2 For example, a married woman is legally bound to her husband while he is alive. But if he dies, she is exempt from the law concerning her husband.
Rom 7:3 Now if she were with another man while her husband lived, she would be guilty of adultery. But if her husband died she would not be guilty of adultery, even if she were with another man.
Rom 7:4 So then, my brothers and sisters, you too were put to death in the eyes of the law by means of the body of the Anointed, in order to belong to Another— the One who was raised from the dead— so that we should always be productive for God.
Rom 7:5 For when we were governed by the flesh, the passions caused by the law were active in our body parts, producing death.
Rom 7:6 Yet we were discharged from the law, dying to that which held us down, so that now we are able to slave in the new way of the spirit and not the old way of the letter.
Rom 7:7 What will we do then, declare that the law is Failure? Absolutely not! But I would not have known what Failure is without law. For example, I wouldn’t have been conscious of wanting what belongs to others without the law stating, “You must not want what belongs to others.”
Rom 7:8 Now Failure, seizing the opportunity through the commandment, produced in me a desire for other people’s belongings, because apart from law, Failure is dead.
Rom 7:9 I once lived apart from law, but with the arrival of the commandment, Failure came to life and I died.
Rom 7:10 So the commandment that was intended to bring life brought only death.
Rom 7:11 Failure seized the opportunity through the commandment to completely seduce me and thereby kill me.
Rom 7:12 So in fact the law is holy, and the commandment is holy, just, and good.
Rom 7:13 So then, did that which is good become the death of me? Absolutely not! Instead, Failure, in order to be exposed as such, was producing death in me by that which is good so it could be exposed through the commandment as utter failure.
Rom 7:14 For though we know the law is spiritual, yet I am fleshly, having been disposed of under Failure.
Rom 7:15 I don’t know what I’m accomplishing, because I don’t do what I intend, and instead do what I hate.
Rom 7:16 Now if I do what I don’t want to do, I concede that the law is respectable.
Rom 7:17 But then I know it isn’t really I who am doing this, but Failure who is taking up residence in me.
Rom 7:18 I am aware that nothing good makes its home in me (that is, in my flesh), for my will lies in wait for me, to accomplish that which is not respectable.
Rom 7:19 I don’t do the good I want to do, but instead, I put into practice the evil I don’t want to do.
Rom 7:20 Now if I do what I don’t want to do, it is no longer I who am practicing it, but Failure which makes its home in me.
Rom 7:21 Consequently I discover this principle: whenever I intend to do good, evil is lying in ambush.
Rom 7:22 I delight in the law of God in my inner person,
Rom 7:23 but in my body parts I observe a different law that makes war with the law of my mind and leads me into captivity to the law of Failure that lives in my body parts.
Rom 7:24 Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will rescue me from this body condemned to die?
Rom 7:25 Give thanks to God through Jesus the Anointed, our Master! In conclusion, I myself, in my mind, slave for the law of God, but in the flesh I slave for the law of Failure.
Rom 7:1 η αγνοειτε αδελφοι γινωσκουσιν γαρ νομον λαλω ὁτι ὁ νομος κυριευει του ανθρωπου εφ᾿ ὁσον χρονον ζη
Rom 7:2 ἡ γαρ ὑπανδρος γυνη τω ζωντι ανδρι δεδεται νομω εαν δε αποθανη ὁ ανηρ κατηργηται απο του νομου του ανδρος
Rom 7:3 αρα ουν ζωντος του ανδρος μοιχαλις χρηματισει εαν γενηται ανδρι ἑτερω εαν δε αποθανη ὁ ανηρ ελευθερα εστιν απο του νομου του μη ειναι αυτην μοιχαλιδα γενομενην ανδρι ἑτερω
Rom 7:4 ὡστε αδελφοι μου και ὑμεις εθανατωθητε τω νομω δια του σωματος του χριστου εις το γενεσθαι ὑμας ἑτερω τω εκ νεκρων εγερθεντι ἱνα καρποφορησωμεν τω θεω
Rom 7:5 ὁτε γαρ ημεν εν τη σαρκι τα παθηματα των ἁμαρτιων τα δια του νομου ενηργειτο εν τοις μελεσιν ἡμων εις το καρποφορησαι τω θανατω
Rom 7:6 νυνι δε κατηργηθημεν απο του νομου αποθανοντες εν ὡ κατειχομεθα ὡστε δουλευειν ἡμας εν καινοτητι πνευματος και ου παλαιοτητι γραμματος
Rom 7:7 τι ουν ερουμεν ὁ νομος ἁμαρτια μη γενοιτο αλλα την ἁμαρτιαν ουκ εγνων ει. μη δια νομου την τε γαρ επιθυμιαν ουκ ηδειν ει. μη ὁ νομος ελεγεν ουκ επιθυμησεις
Rom 7:8 αφορμην δε λαβουσα ἡ ἁμαρτια δια της εντολης κατειργασατο εν εμοι πασαν επιθυμιαν χωρις γαρ νομου ἁμαρτια νεκρα
Rom 7:9 εγω δε εζων χωρις νομου ποτε ελθουσης δε της εντολης ἡ ἁμαρτια ανεζησεν εγω δε απεθανον
Rom 7:10 και εὑρεθη μοι ἡ εντολη ἡ εις ζωην αὑτη εις θανατον
Rom 7:11 ἡ γαρ ἁμαρτια αφορμην λαβουσα δια της εντολης εξηπατησε με και δι᾽ αυτης απεκτεινεν
Rom 7:12 ὡστε ὁ μεν νομος ἁγιος και ἡ εντολη ἁγια και δικαια και αγαθη
Rom 7:13 το ουν αγαθον εμοι εγενετο θανατος μη γενοιτο αλλα ἡ ἁμαρτια ἱνα φαινωσιν ἁμαρτια δια του αγαθου μοι κατεργαζομενη θανατον ἱνα γενηται καθ᾽ ὑπερβολην ἁμαρτωλος ἡ ἁμαρτια δια της εντολης
Rom 7:14 οιδαμεν γαρ ὁτι ὁ νομος πνευματικος εστιν εγω δε σαρκικος ειμι πεπραμενος ὑπο την ἁμαρτιαν
Rom 7:15 ὁ γαρ κατεργαζομαι ου γινωσκω ου γαρ ὁ θελω τουτο πρασσω αλλ᾽ ὁ μισω τουτο ποιω
Rom 7:16 ει. δε ὁ ου θελω τουτο ποιω συμφημι τω νομω ὁτι καλος
Rom 7:17 νυνι δε ουκετι εγω κατεργαζομαι αυτο αλλα ἡ οικουσα εν εμοι ἁμαρτια
Rom 7:18 οιδα γαρ ὁτι ουκ οικει εν εμοι τουτ᾿ εστιν εν τη σαρκι μου αγαθον το γαρ θελειν παρακειται μοι το δε κατεργαζεσθαι το καλον ου
Rom 7:19 ου γαρ ὁ θελω ποιω αγαθον αλλα ὁ ου θελω κακον τουτο πρασσω
Rom 7:20 ει. δε ὁ ου θελω εγω τουτο ποιω ουκετι εγω κατεργαζομαι αυτο αλλα ἡ οικουσα εν εμοι ἁμαρτια
Rom 7:21 εὑρισκω αρα τον νομον τω θελοντι εμοι ποιειν το καλον ὁτι εμοι το κακον παρακειται
Rom 7:22 συνηδομαι γαρ τω νομω του θεου κατα τον εσω ανθρωπον
Rom 7:23 βλεπω δε ἑτερον νομον εν τοις μελεσιν μου αντιστρατευομενον τω νομω του νοος μου και αιχμαλωτιζοντα με εν τω νομω της ἁμαρτιας τω οντι εν τοις μελεσιν μου
Rom 7:24 ταλαιπωρος εγω ανθρωπος τις με ῥυσεται εκ του σωματος του θανατου τουτου
Rom 7:25 χαρις δε τω θεω δια ιησου χριστου του κυριου ἡμων αρα ουν αυτος εγω τω μεν νοϊ δουλευω νομω θεου τη δε σαρκι νομω ἁμαρτιας
