3 So then if, while the husband is living, she is joined to 1another man, she will be called an adulteress; but if the husband dies, she is free from the law, so that she is not an adulteress, though she is joined to 1another man.
4 So then, my brothers, 1you also ahave been made dead to the law through the body of Christ so that 1you might be 2joined to banother, to Him who has been raised from the dead, that we might 3bear fruit to God.
5 For when we were in the flesh, the passions for sins, which acted through the law, operated in our members to bear fruit to death.
8 But 1sin, seizing the opportunity through the commandment, worked out in me coveting of every kind; for without the law sin is dead.
9 And I was alive without the law once; but when the commandment came, sin revived and I died.
10 And the commandment, which was unto life, this very commandment was found to me to be unto 1death.
12 So then the law is holy, and the commandment holy and righteous and good.
13 Did then that which is good become death to me? Absolutely not! But sin did, that it might 1be shown to be sin by working out death in me through that which is good, that sin through the commandment might become exceedingly sinful.
15 For what I work out, I 1do not acknowledge; for what I will, this I do not practice; but what I hate, this I do.
16 But if what I do not will, this I do, I agree with the law that it is good.
19 For I do not do the good which I will; but the evil which I do not will, this I practice.
20 But if what I do not will, this I do, it is ano longer I that work it out but sin that dwells in me.
