Romans 7:14–25

14 For we know that the law is spiritual, g but I am made out of flesh, h sold i into sin’s power. j 15 For I do not understand what I am doing, k because I do not practice what I want to do, l but I do what I hate. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree with the law that it is good. 17 So now I am no longer the one doing it, but it is sin living in me. 18 For I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my flesh. m For the desire to do what is good is with me, but there is no ability to do it. 19 For I do not do the good that I want to do, but I practice the evil that I do not want to do. 20 Now if I do what I do not want, I am no longer the one doing it, but it is the sin that lives in me. 21 So I discover this principle: n o When I want to do what is good, evil is with me. 22 For in my inner self p I joyfully agree with God’s law. q 23 But I see a different law in the parts of my body, r s waging war against the law of my mind and taking me prisoner to the law of sin in the parts of my body. t 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this dying body? u 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord! v w So then, with my mind I myself am a slave to the law of God, but with my flesh, to the law of sin.
