Romans 7:7-12 King James Version

The Problem of Indwelling Sin

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, [1] 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.

1 Corinthians 15:56 King James Version

56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.

Galatians 3:21 King James Version

21 Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.

Hebrews 10:3 King James Version

3 But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.


[1] 7:7 lust: or, concupiscence
