The law of Moses is fulfilled in Christ—Paul delights in the law of God after the inward man.
1 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the alaw hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?
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 adead to the blaw 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.
8 But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. For without the alaw 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 adeath.
11 For sin, ataking 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? aGod 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.
16 If then I do that which I awould not, I consent unto the law that it is good.
17 Now then it is no more I that ado it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
20 Now if I do athat 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 apresent with me.
22 For I adelight in the law of God after the inward man:
24 O awretched 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.
