Romans 7:15-25

  15 G1063 For G3739 that which G2716 [G5736] I do G1097 [G5719] I understand G3756 not: G1063 for G3739 what G2309 [G5719] I would, G5124 that G4238 [G5719] I do G3756 not; G235 but G3739 what G3404 [G5719] I hate, G5124 that G4160 [G5719] I do.
  16 G1487 If G1161 then G4160 [G5719] I do G5124 that G3739 which G2309 [G5719] I would G3756 not, G4852 [G5748] I consent G3551 to the law G3754 that G2570 it is good.
  17 G3570 Now G1161 then G3765 it is no more G1473 I G2716 [G5736] that do G846 it, G235 but G266 sin G3611 [G5723] that dwelleth G1722 in G1698 me.
  18 G1063 For G1492 [G5758] I know G3754 that G1722 in G1698 me G5123 [G5748] (that is, G1722 in G3450 my G4561 flesh,) G3611 [G5719] dwelleth G3756 no G18 good thing: G1063 for G2309 [G5721] to will G3873 [G5736] is present G3427 with me; G1161 but G2716 [G5738] how to perform G2570 that which is good G2147 [G5719] I find G3756 not.
  19 G1063 G3739 For G18 the good G2309 [G5719] that I would G4160 [G5719] I do G3756 not: G235 but G2556 the bad G3739 which G2309 [G5719] I would G3756 not, G5124 that G4238 [G5719] I do.
  20 G1161 Now G1487 G3739 if G4160 [G5719] I do G5124 that G1473 which I G2309 [G5719] would G3756 not, G2089 G3765 it is no more G1473 I G2716 [G5736] that do G846 it, G235 but G266 sin G3611 [G5723] that dwelleth G1722 in G1698 me.
  21 G2147 [G5719] I find G686 then G3551 a law, G3754 that, G1698 when I G2309 [G5723] would G4160 [G5721] do G2570 good, G2556 bad G3873 [G5736] is present G1698 with me.
  22 G1063 For G4913 [G5736] I delight G3551 in the law G2316 of God G2596 after G2080 the inward G444 man:
  23 G1161 But G991 [G5719] I see G2087 another G3551 law G1722 in G3450 my G3196 members, G497 [G5740] warring against G3551 the law G3450 of my G3563 mind, G2532 and G163 0 bringing G3165 me G163 [G5723] into captivity G3551 to the law G266 of sin G3588 which G5607 [G5752] is G1722 in G3450 my G3196 members.
  24 G5005 O wretched G444 man G1473 that I am! G5101 who G4506 [G5695] shall deliver G3165 me G1537 from G4983 the body G5127 of this G2288 death?
  25 G2168 [G5719] I thank G2316 God G1223 through G2424 Jesus G5547 Anointed G2257 our G2962 Lord. G686 G3767 So then G3563 with the mind G1473 I G846 myself G3303 indeed G1398 [G5719] am a slave G3551 of the law G2316 of God; G1161 but G4561 with the flesh G3551 the law G266 of sin.

Hebrews 4:16

G2532 And G1437 if G5100 any man G264 [G5632] sinneth, G2192 [G5719] we have G3875 an advocate G4314 with G3962 the Father, G2424 Jesus G5547 Anointed G1342 the righteous:

  21 G3767 Then G2036 [G5627] said G2424 Jesus G846 to them G3825 again, G1515 { Peace G5213 be to you: G2531 as G3962 my Father G649 [G5758] hath sent G3165 me, G2504 even so I G3992 [G5719] send G5209 you.}
