kjv@Romans:7:7@ 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.
kjv@Romans:7:8@ But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. For without the law sin was dead.
kjv@Romans:7:9@ For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died.
kjv@Romans:7:10@ And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death.
kjv@Romans:7:11@ For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me.
kjv@Romans:7:12@ Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.
kjv@Romans:7:13@ 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.
kjv@Romans:7:14@ For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.
kjv@Romans:7:15@ For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.
kjv@Romans:7:16@ If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.
kjv@Romans:7:17@ Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
kjv@Romans: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.
kjv@Romans:7:19@ For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
kjv@Romans:7:20@ Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
kjv@Romans:7:21@ I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.
