Romans 7:1-8:39 ESV / 6 helpful votes

Or do you not know, brothers—for I am speaking to those who know the law—that the law is binding on a person only as long as he lives? For a married woman is bound by law to her husband while he lives, but if her husband dies she is released from the law of marriage.

For while we were living in the flesh, our sinful passions, aroused by the law, were at work in our members to bear fruit for death. ...
