Pristine Grace

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

Rom 7:1-25, (MKJV)
1  Or are you ignorant, brothers; for I speak to those who know the Law; that the law has dominion over a man as long as he lives?
2  For the married woman was bound by law to the living husband. But if the husband is dead, she is set free from the law of her husband.
3  So then if , while her husband lives, she is married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress. But if the husband dies, she is free from the law, so that she is no adulteress by becoming another man's wife.
4  So, my brothers, you also have become dead to the law by the body of Christ so that you should be married to Another, even to Him raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit to God.
5  For when we were in the flesh, the passions of sin worked in our members through the law to bring forth fruit to death.
6  But now we having been set free from the Law, having died to that in which we were held, so that we serve in newness of spirit and not in oldness of the letter.
7  What shall we say then? Is the law sin? Let it not be said! But I did not know sin except through the law. For also I did not know lust except the law said, You shall not lust.
8  But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, worked in me all kinds of lust. For apart from law sin was dead.
9  For I was alive without the law once. But when the commandment came, sin revived and I died.
10  And the commandment, which was to life, was found to be death to me.
11  For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it killed me .
12  So indeed the Law is holy, and the commandment is holy and just and good.
13  Then has that which is good become death to me? Let it not be! But sin, that it might appear to be sin, working death in me by that which is good; in order that sin might become exceedingly sinful by the commandment.
14  For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal, sold under sin.
15  For that which I do, I know not. For what I desire, that I do not do; but what I hate, that I do.
16  If then I do that which I do not desire, I consent to the law that it is good.
17  But now it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwells in me.
18  For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) dwells no good thing. For to will is present with me, but how to perform that which is good I do not find.
19  For I do not do the good that I desire; but the evil which I do not will, that I do.
20  But if I do what I do not desire, it is no more I working it out, but sin dwelling in me.
21  I find then a law: when I will to do the right, evil is present with me.
22  For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man;
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 being in my members.
24  O wretched man that I am ! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
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.

Rom 7:1-25, (NASB)
1  Or do you not know, brethren (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 married woman is bound by law to her husband while he is living; but if her husband dies, she is released from the law concerning 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 to die to the Law through 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 the flesh, the sinful passions, which were aroused by the Law, were at work in the members of our body to bear fruit for death.
6  But now we have been released from the Law, having died to that by which we were bound, so that we serve in newness of the Spirit and not in oldness of the letter.
7  What shall we say then? Is the Law sin? May it never be! On the contrary, I would not have come to know sin except through the Law; for I would not have known about coveting if the Law had not said, "You shall not covet."
8  But sin, taking opportunity through the commandment, produced in me coveting of every kind; for apart from the Law sin is dead.
9  I was once alive apart from the Law; but when the commandment came, sin became alive and I died;
10  and this commandment, which was to result in life, proved to result in death for me;
11  for sin, taking an opportunity through the commandment, deceived me and through it killed me.
12  So 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 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.
14  For we know that the Law is spiritual, but I am of flesh, sold into bondage to sin.
15  For what I am doing, I do not understand; for I am not practicing what 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 Law, confessing that the Law is good.
17  So now, no 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; for the willing is present in me, but the doing of the good is not.
19  For the 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 am no longer the one doing it, but sin which dwells in me.
21  I find then the principle that evil is present in me, the one who wants to do good.
22  For I joyfully concur with the law of God in the inner man,
23  but I see a different law in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin which is in my members.
24  Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death?
25  Thanks 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 law of sin.

Rom 7:1-25, (LITV)
1  Or are you ignorant, brothers, (for I speak to those knowing Law), that the Law lords it over the man for as long a time as he lives?
2  For the married woman was bound by Law to the living husband; but if the husband dies, she is set free from the Law of the husband.
3  So then, if the husband is living, she will be called an adulteress if she becomes another man's. But if the husband dies, she is free from the Law, so as for her not to be an adulteress by becoming another man's.
4  So that, my brothers, you also were made dead to the Law through the body of Christ, for you to become Another's, to the One raised from the dead, so that we may bear fruit to God.
5  For when we were in the flesh, the passions of sin were working in our members through the Law for the bearing of fruit unto death.
6  But now we have been set free from the Law, having died to that in which we were held, so as for us to serve in newness of spirit, and not in oldness of letter.
7  What shall we say then? Is the Law sin? Let it not be! But I did not know sin except through Law; for also I did not know lust except the Law said, "You shall not lust." Ex. 20:17
8  But sin taking occasion through the commandment worked every lust in me; for apart from Law, sin is dead.
9  And I was alive apart from Law once, but the commandment came, and sin came alive, and I died.
10  And the commandment which was to life, this was found to be death to me;
11  for sin taking occasion through the commandment deceived me, and through it killed me.
12  So indeed the Law is holy, and the commandment holy and just and good.
13  Then that which is good, has it become death to me? Let it not be! But sin, that it might appear to be sin, having worked out death to me through the good, in order that sin might become excessively sinful through the commandment.
14  For we know that the Law is spiritual, but I am fleshly, having been sold under sin.
15  For what I work out, I do not know. For what I do not will, this I do. But what I hate, this I do.
16  But if I do what I do not will, I agree with the Law, that it is good.
17  But now I no longer work it out, but the sin dwelling in me.
18  For I know that in me, that is in my flesh, dwells no good. For to will is present to me, but to work out the good I do not find.
19  For what good I desire, I do not do. But the evil I do not desire, this I do.
20  But if I do what I do not desire, it is no longer I working it out, but the sin dwelling in me.
21  I find then the law, when I desire to do the right, that evil is present with me.
22  For I delight in the Law of God according to the inward man;
23  but I see another law in my members having warred against the law of my mind, and taking me captive by the law of sin being in my members.
24  O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
25  I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then I myself with the mind truly serve the Law of God, and with the flesh the law of sin.
