Believers United to Christ

1 Or do you not know, brethren R290 (for I am speaking to those who know the law), that the law has jurisdiction over a person as long as he lives? 2 For the R291 married woman is bound by law to her husband F120 while he is living; but if her husband dies, she is released from the law concerning F121 the husband. 3 So then, if while her husband is living she is joined to another man, she shall be called an adulteress; but if her husband dies, she is free from the law, so that she is not an adulteress though she is joined to another man.

4 Therefore, my brethren, you also were made R292 to die to R293 the Law through R294 the body of Christ, so that you might be joined to another, to Him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit for God. 5 For while we were in R295 the flesh, the sinful passions, which were aroused R296 by the Law, were at work in R297 the F122 members of our body to bear fruit for death. 6 But now we have been released R298 from the Law, having died R299 to that by which we were bound, so that we serve in newness R300 of the R301 Spirit F123 and not in oldness of the letter.

7 What R302 shall we say then? Is the Law sin? May R303 it never be! On the contrary, I R304 would not have come to know sin except through F124 the Law; for I would not have known about coveting F125 if the Law had not said, "YOU R305 SHALL NOT COVET F125 ." 8 But sin, taking R306 opportunity through R307 the commandment, produced in me coveting F126 of every kind; for apart R308 from F127 the Law sin is dead. 9 I was once alive apart from F128 the Law; but when the commandment came, sin became alive and I died; 10 and this commandment, which was to R309 F129 result in life, proved to F130 result in death for me; 11 for sin, taking R310 an opportunity through R311 the commandment, deceived R312 me and through it killed me. 12 So R313 then, the Law is holy, and the commandment is holy and righteous and good.

13 Therefore did that which is good become a cause of death for me? May R314 it never be! Rather it was sin, in order that it might be shown to be sin by effecting my death through that which is good, so that through the commandment sin would become utterly sinful.

The Conflict of Two Natures

14 For we know that the Law is spiritual, R315 but I am of R315 flesh, sold R316 into R317 F131 bondage to sin. 15 For what I am doing, I R318 do not understand; for I am not practicing what R319 I would like to do, but I am doing the very thing I hate. 16 But if I do the very thing I do not want to do, I agree with the R320 Law, confessing that the Law is good. 17 So now, no R321 longer am I the one doing it, but sin which dwells in me. 18 For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh; R322 for the willing is present in me, but the doing of the good is not. 19 For the R323 good that I want, I do not do, but I practice the very evil that I do not want. 20 But if I am doing the very thing I do not want, I R324 am no longer the one doing it, but sin which dwells in me.

21 I find then the R325 principle F132 that evil is present in me, the one who wants to do good. 22 For I joyfully concur with the law of God in F133 the R326 inner man, 23 but I see a R327 different law in the F134 members of my body, waging war against the law R328 of my mind and making me a prisoner of F135 the R329 law of sin which is in my members. 24 Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the R330 F136 body of this death? R331 25 Thanks R332 be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, on the one hand I myself with my mind am serving the law of God, but on the other, with my flesh the R333 law of sin.
