Romans 7

7:1 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the
 law) that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he
7:2 For the woman who hath a husband, is bound by the law to
 [her] husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband is dead,
 she is loosed from the law of [her] husband.
7:3 So then, if while [her] husband liveth, she is married to
 another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her
 husband is dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no
 adulteress, though she be married to another man.
7:4 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 to God.
7:5 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
 to death:
7:6 But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead by
 which we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit,
 and not [in] the oldness of the letter.
7:7 What shall we say then? [Is] the law sin? By no means. No, I
 had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust,
 except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet.
7:8 But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me
 all manner of concupiscence. For without the law sin [was]
7:9 For I was alive without the law once: but when the
 commandment came, sin revived, and I died.
7:10 And the commandment which [was ordained] to life, I found
 [to be] to death.
7:11 For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me,
 and by it slew [me].
7:12 Wherefore the law [is] holy, and the commandment holy, and
 just, and good.
7:13 Was then that which is good made death to me? By no means.
 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.
7:14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal,
 sold under sin.
7:15 For that which I do, I allow not: for what I would, that I
 do not; but what I hate, that I do.
7:16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent to the law
 that [it is] good.
7:17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth
 in me.
7:18 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.
7:19 For the good that I would, I do not; but the evil which I
 would not, that I do.
7:20 Now if I do that which I would not, it is no more I that do
 it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
7:21 I find then a law, that when I would do good, evil is
 present with me.
7:22 For I delight in the law of God, after the inward man:
7:23 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.
7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the
 body of this death?
7:25 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.
