I was alive once without the law, but when the commandment came, sin revived and I died. 10 And the commandment, (A)which was to bring life, I found to bring death. 11 For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it killed me. 12 Therefore (B)the law is holy, and the commandment holy and just and good.

Law Cannot Save from Sin

13 Has then what is good become death to me? Certainly not! But sin, that it might appear sin, was producing death in me through what is good, so that sin through the commandment might become exceedingly sinful.

I was once alive apart [a]from the Law; but when the commandment came, sin came to life, and I died; 10 and this commandment, which was [b](A)to result in life, proved [c]to result in death for me; 11 for sin, (B)taking an opportunity (C)through the commandment, (D)deceived me, and through it, killed me. 12 (E)So then, the Law is holy, and the commandment is holy and righteous and good.

13 Therefore did that which is good become a cause of death for me? [d](F)Far from it! Rather it was sin, in order that it might be shown to be sin by bringing about my death through that which is good, so that through the commandment sin would become utterly sinful.

I was once alive without [knowledge of] the Law; but when the commandment came [and I understood its meaning], sin became alive and I died [since the Law sentenced me to death].(A) 10 And the very commandment which was intended to bring life, actually proved to bring death for me.(B) 11 For sin, seizing its opportunity through the commandment, beguiled and completely deceived me, and [a]using it as a weapon killed me [separating me from God]. 12 So then, the Law is holy, and the commandment is holy and righteous and good.

13 Did that which is good [the Law], then become death to me? Certainly not! But sin, in order that it might be revealed as sin, was producing death in me by [using] this good thing [as a weapon], so that through the commandment sin would become exceedingly sinful.

  1. Romans 7:11 Lit through it killed me.

Once I was alive apart from the law; but when the commandment came, sin sprang to life and I died. 10 I found that the very commandment that was intended to bring life(A) actually brought death. 11 For sin, seizing the opportunity afforded by the commandment,(B) deceived me,(C) and through the commandment put me to death. 12 So then, the law is holy, and the commandment is holy, righteous and good.(D)

13 Did that which is good, then, become death to me? By no means! Nevertheless, in order that sin might be recognized as sin, it used what is good(E) to bring about my death,(F) so that through the commandment sin might become utterly sinful.

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.

13 Was then that which is good made death unto me? God 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.
