1 G2228 Or G50 [G5719] know ye not, G80 brethren, G1063 (for G2980 [G5719] I speak G1097 [G5723] to them that know G3551 the law,) G3754 that G3551 the law G2961 [G5719] hath dominion G1909 over G444 a man G3745 as much G5550 time G2198 [G5719] as he liveth?
2 G1063 For G1135 the woman G5220 who hath an husband G1210 [G5769] is bound G3551 by the law G435 to her husband G2198 [G5723] so long as he liveth; G1161 but G1437 if G435 the husband G599 [G5632] is dead, G2673 [G5769] she is rendered useless G575 from G3551 the law G435 of her husband.
3 G686 G3767 So then G1437 if, G435 while her husband G2198 [G5723] liveth, G1096 [G5638] she is married G2087 to another G435 man, G5537 [G5692] she shall be dealing G3428 as an adulteress: G1161 but G1437 if G435 her husband G599 [G5632] is dead, G2076 [G5748] she is G1658 free G575 from G3551 that law; G846 so that she G1511 [G5750] is G3361 no G3428 adulteress, G1096 [G5637] though she be married G2087 to another G435 man.
4 G5620 Therefore, G3450 my G80 brethren, G5210 ye G2532 also G2289 [G5681] are become dead G3551 to the law G1223 by G4983 the body G5547 of Anointed; G1519 that G5209 ye G1096 [G5635] should be married G2087 to another, G1453 [G5685] even to him who is raised G1537 from G3498 the dead, G2443 that G2592 [G5661] we should bring forth fruit G2316 to God.
5 G1063 For G3753 when G2258 [G5713] we were G1722 in G4561 the flesh, G266 the sinful G3804 passions, G3588 which G1223 were by G3551 the law, G1754 [G5710] did work G1722 in G2257 our G3196 members G1519 to bring G2592 [G5658] forth fruit G2288 to death.
6 G1161 But G3570 now G2673 [G5681] we have been rendered useless G575 from G3551 the law, G599 G599 [G5631] that being dead G1722 by G3739 which G2722 [G5712] we were held; G5620 that G2248 we G1398 [G5721] should be a slave G1722 in G2538 newness G4151 of spirit, G2532 and G3756 not G3821 in the oldness G1121 of the letter.
7 G5101 What G2046 [G5692] shall we say G3767 then? G3551 Is the law G266 sin? G3361 G1096 [G5636] By no means. G235 Nay, G1097 0 I had G3756 not G1097 [G5627] known G266 sin, G1508 but G1223 by G3551 the law: G1063 G5037 for G1492 0 I had G3756 not G1492 [G5715] known G1939 lust, G1508 except G3551 the law G3004 [G5707] had said, G1937 0 Thou shalt G3756 not G1937 [G5692] covet.
8 G1161 But G266 sin, G2983 [G5631] taking G874 a starting-point G1223 by G1785 the commandment, G2716 [G5662] wrought G1722 in G1698 me G3956 all manner of G1939 lust. G1063 For G5565 apart from G3551 the law G266 sin G3498 was dead.
9 G1161 For G1473 I G2198 [G5707] was alive G5565 apart from G3551 the law G4218 once: G1161 but G1785 when the commandment G2064 [G5631] came, G266 sin G326 [G5656] revived, G1161 and G1473 I G599 [G5627] died.
10 G2532 And G1785 the commandment, G3588 which G1519 was unto G2222 life, G3427 I G2147 G3778 [G5681] found G1519 to be unto G2288 death.
11 G1063 For G266 sin, G2983 [G5631] taking G874 a starting-point G1223 by G1785 the commandment, G1818 [G5656] deceived G3165 me, G2532 and G1223 by G846 it G615 [G5656] slew me.
12 G5620 G3303 Therefore G3551 the law G40 is holy, G2532 and G1785 the commandment G40 holy, G2532 and G1342 just, G2532 and G18 good.
13 G3767 Was then G18 that which is good G1096 [G5754] made G2288 death G1698 to me? G3361 G1096 [G5636] By no means. G235 But G266 sin, G2443 that G5316 [G5652] it might appear G266 sin, G2716 [G5740] working G2288 death G3427 in me G1223 by G18 that which is good; G2443 that G266 sin G1223 by G1785 the commandment G1096 [G5638] might become G2596 G5236 exceeding G268 sinful.
14 G1063 For G1492 [G5758] we know G3754 that G3551 the law G2076 [G5748] is G4152 spiritual: G1161 but G1473 I G1510 [G5748] am G4559 fleshly, G4097 [G5772] sold G5259 under G266 sin.
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?
