2 (A)For the woman which is in subjection to a man, is bound by the Law to the man, while he liveth: but if the man be dead, she is delivered from the Law of the man.
3 So then, if while the man liveth, she taketh another man, she shall be [a]called an (B)adulteress: but if the man be dead, she is free from the Law, so that she is not an adulteress, though she take another man.
4 [b]So ye, my brethren, are dead also to the Law by the [c]body of Christ, that ye should be unto another, even unto him that is raised up from the dead, that we should bring forth [d]fruit unto [e]God.Read full chapter
