If ye have died, together with Christ, from the first principles of the world, why, as though alive in the world, are ye submitting to decrees, -

But, if Christ is in you, the body, indeed, is dead by reason of sin, whereas, the spirit, is life by reason of righteousness; If, moreover, the Spirit of him that raised Jesus from among the dead dwelleth in you, he that raised from among the dead Christ Jesus, shall make alive evenyour death-doomed bodies, through means of his indwelling Spirit within you.

Far be it! we who have died unto sin, how, any longer, shall we live therein? Or know ye not that, we, as many as were immersed into Christ Jesus, into his death were immersed? We were, therefore, buried together with him through our immersion into his death, in order that - just as Christ was raised from among the dead through the glory of the Father, so, we also, in newness of life should walk. read more.
For, if we have come to be grown together in the likeness of his death, certainly, in that of his resurrection also, shall we be. Of this taking note - that, our old man, was crucified together with him in order that the sinful body might be made powerless, that we should, no longer, be in servitude to sin; For, he that hath died, hath become righteously acquitted from his sin. Now, if we have died together with Christ, we believe that we shall also live together with him; Knowing that, Christ having been raised from among the dead, no more dieth, - death, over him, no more, hath lordship, - For, in that he died, unto sin, died he once for all, but, in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. So, ye also, be reckoning yourselves to be - dead indeed unto sin, but, alive unto God in Christ Jesus.

Or are ye ignorant, brethren, - for unto them that understand the law am I speaking, that, the law, hath lordship over a men as long as he liveth? For, the married woman, unto her living husband is bound by law; but, if her husband have died, she hath received a full release from the law of her husband. Hence then, her husband being alive, an adulteress, shall she be called - if she become another man's, but, if the husband have died, she is free from the law; so that she is not an adulteress, though she become another man's. read more.
So, then, my brethren, ye also, were made dead unto the law through the body of the Christ, to the end ye might become another's - his who from among the dead was raised, in order that we might bring forth fruit unto God. For, when we were in the flesh, the susceptibilities of sins which were through the law, used to be energized in our members unto the bringing forth of fruit unto death; But, now, we have received full release from the law, by dying in that wherein we used to be held fast, so that we should be doing service - in newness of spirit and not in obsoleteness of letter. What, then, shall we say? Is the law sin? Far be it! On the contrary, I had not discovered, sin, save through law, for even, of coveting, I had not been aware if, the law, had not kept on saying - Thou shall not covet; Howbeit sin taking, occasion - through the commandment, wrought out in me all manner of coveting; for, apart from law, sin is dead; - And, I, was alive, apart from law, at one time, but, the commandment coming, sin sprang up to life, Whereas, I, died, - and the commandment which was unto life was found by me to be, itself, unto death;


And, I, was alive, apart from law, at one time, but, the commandment coming, sin sprang up to life, Whereas, I, died, - and the commandment which was unto life was found by me to be, itself, unto death; For, sin, - taking occasion - through the commandment, completely deceived me and, through it, slew me: read more.
So that, the law, indeed, is holy, and the commandment, holy, and righteous and good. Did, then, that which is good, unto me become death? Far be it! But it was sin, that it might appear sin, through that which was good unto me working out death, in order that, exceeding sinful, might sin become through the commandment. For we know that, the law, is spiritual, - I, however, am a creature of flesh, sold under sin; For, that which I am working out, I do not approve, - for not, what I wish, the same I practise, but, what I hate, the same I do: Now, if what I wish not the same I do, I consent unto the law that it is right. Now, however, no longer am, I, working it out, but the, sin, that dwelleth in me: I know, in fact, that there dwelleth not in me, that is, in my flesh, anything good; for, the wishing, lieth near me, but, the working out of what is right, not! For not, the good that I wish, I do, but, the evil that I do not wish, the same I practise. Now, if what I wish not, the same, I do, no longer am, I, working it out, but the, sin, that dwelleth in me. Hence, I find the law, to me who wish to be doing the right, that, unto me, the wrong lieth near: I have, in fact, a sympathetic pleasure in the law of God; according to the inner man. But I behold a diverse law in my members, warring against the law of my mind and taking me captive in the law of sin which existeth in my members: - Wretched, man am, I! Who shall rescue me out of this body doomed to death? Butthanks be unto God! - Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Hence, then, - I myself, with the mind, indeed, am in servitude unto a law of God; but; with the flesh; unto a law of sin.






Better to me, is the law of thy mouth, than thousands of gold and silver. [YODH] Thine own hands, have made me, and formed me. Give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments. They who revere thee, shall see me and rejoice, that, for thy word, I waited. read more.
I know, O Yahweh, that righteous are thy regulations, and, in faithfulness, didst thou afflict me.

What, then, shall we say? Is the law sin? Far be it! On the contrary, I had not discovered, sin, save through law, for even, of coveting, I had not been aware if, the law, had not kept on saying - Thou shall not covet; Howbeit sin taking, occasion - through the commandment, wrought out in me all manner of coveting; for, apart from law, sin is dead; - And, I, was alive, apart from law, at one time, but, the commandment coming, sin sprang up to life, read more.
Whereas, I, died, - and the commandment which was unto life was found by me to be, itself, unto death; For, sin, - taking occasion - through the commandment, completely deceived me and, through it, slew me: So that, the law, indeed, is holy, and the commandment, holy, and righteous and good. Did, then, that which is good, unto me become death? Far be it! But it was sin, that it might appear sin, through that which was good unto me working out death, in order that, exceeding sinful, might sin become through the commandment. For we know that, the law, is spiritual, - I, however, am a creature of flesh, sold under sin; For, that which I am working out, I do not approve, - for not, what I wish, the same I practise, but, what I hate, the same I do: Now, if what I wish not the same I do, I consent unto the law that it is right.

Why, then, the law? Because of the transgressions, it was added, until such time as the seed should come, unto whom the promise had been made, and was given in charge through messengers, at the hand of a mediator; Now, a mediator, is not a mediator of one, but, God, is, one. Is, the law, then, against the promises of God? Far be it! For, if a law had been given, which had been able to give life, verily, in law, would have been our righteousness; read more.
But the Scripture, did shut up, all things, under sin, that, the promise by faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to them who have faith, Before the coming of the faith, however, under law, were we being kept in ward, being shut up unto the faith which should afterwards, be revealed. So that, the law, hath proved, our tutor, training us, for Christ, in order that, by faith, we might be declared righteous; But, the faith having come, no longer, are we, under a tutor; - For ye, all, are, sons of God, through the faith in Christ Jesus; For ye, as many as, into Christ, have been immersed, have put Christ, on: There cannot be Jew or Greek, there cannot be bond or free, there cannot be male and female, for, all ye, are one, in Christ Jesus: Now, if, ye, are of Christ, by consequence ye are, Abraham's seed, according to promise, heirs.



But their thoughts were turned into stone: for, until this very day, the same veil, upon the reading of the old covenant, abideth, not to be removed, because, in Christ, it is to be done away; But, until this day, whensoever Moses is read, a veil upon their heart, doth lie; Howbeit, whensoever he turneth unto the Lord, he taketh off the veil:


Hence there is now, no, condemnation unto them who are in Christ Jesus; For, the-law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus, hath set thee free from the law of sin and of death; - For, what was impossible by the law in that it was weak through the flesh, God, by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and concerning sin, condemned sin in the flesh, read more.
In order that, the righteous requirement of the law, might be fulfilled in us - who, not according to flesh, do walk, but according to spirit;

Or are ye ignorant, brethren, - for unto them that understand the law am I speaking, that, the law, hath lordship over a men as long as he liveth? For, the married woman, unto her living husband is bound by law; but, if her husband have died, she hath received a full release from the law of her husband. Hence then, her husband being alive, an adulteress, shall she be called - if she become another man's, but, if the husband have died, she is free from the law; so that she is not an adulteress, though she become another man's. read more.
So, then, my brethren, ye also, were made dead unto the law through the body of the Christ, to the end ye might become another's - his who from among the dead was raised, in order that we might bring forth fruit unto God. For, when we were in the flesh, the susceptibilities of sins which were through the law, used to be energized in our members unto the bringing forth of fruit unto death; But, now, we have received full release from the law, by dying in that wherein we used to be held fast, so that we should be doing service - in newness of spirit and not in obsoleteness of letter.

For we know that, the law, is spiritual, - I, however, am a creature of flesh, sold under sin; For, that which I am working out, I do not approve, - for not, what I wish, the same I practise, but, what I hate, the same I do: Now, if what I wish not the same I do, I consent unto the law that it is right. Now, however, no longer am, I, working it out, but the, sin, that dwelleth in me: I know, in fact, that there dwelleth not in me, that is, in my flesh, anything good; for, the wishing, lieth near me, but, the working out of what is right, not!

Who shall rescue me out of this body doomed to death? Butthanks be unto God! - Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Hence, then, - I myself, with the mind, indeed, am in servitude unto a law of God; but; with the flesh; unto a law of sin.

Knowing, however, that a man is not declared righteous by works of law, nor at all save through faith in Christ Jesus; even we, on Christ Jesus, believed, that we might be declared righteous - by faith in Christ, and not by works of law; because, by works of law, shall no flesh be declared righteous. Now, if in seeking to be declared righteous in Christ we, ourselves also, were found sinners, - is Christ, therefore, a minister, of sin? Far be it! For, if, the things that I pulled down, these, again, I build, a transgressor, I prove, myself, to be. read more.
For, I, through means of law, unto law, died, that, unto God, I might live: - With Christ, have I been crucified; and, living no longer, am, I, but, living in me, is, Christ, - while, so far as I now do live in flesh, by faith, I live - The faith in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself up in my behalf. I do not set aside the favour of God; for, if, through law, is righteousness, then, Christ, without cause, died.

For, as many as are of works of law, are, under a curse, - for it is written - Accursed, is everyone that continueth not in all things that are written in the book of the law to do them. Moreover, that, in law, no one, is declared righteous with God, is evident, - because, The righteous one, by faith, shall live; And, the law, is not of faith, but - he that hath done them, shall live in them, read more.
Christ, hath redeemed, us, out of the curse of the law, having become, in our behalf, a curse; - because it is written - Cursed, is every one that hangeth upon a tree; - In order that, unto the nations, the blessing of Abraham, might come about in Jesus Christ, - in order that, the promise of the Spirit, we might receive through means of the faith.

So also, we, when we were infants, under the elementary principles of the world, were held in servitude; But, when the fulness of the time came, God sent forth his Son, who came to be of a woman, who came to be under law, - That, them who were under law, he might redeem, that, the sonship, we might duly receive; - read more.
And, because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, exclaiming, Abba! Oh Father! So that, no longer, art thou a servant, but a son; and, if a son, an heir also, through God. But, at that time - not knowing God, ye were in servitude unto them who, by nature, are not Gods; Whereas, now, having acknowledged God, - or rather, having been acknowledged by God, how turn ye back again unto the weak and beggarly elementary principles, unto which, over again, ye are wishing, to come into servitude? Days, ye do narrowly observer, and months, and seasons, and years: - I am afraid of you - lest by any means, in vain, I should have toiled for you!

But, just now, in Christ Jesus, ye, who at one time were afar off, were made nigh in the blood of the Christ; He, in fact, is our peace - who made both one, and, the enclosing middle-wall, took down, The enmity, in his flesh - the law of commandments in decrees - bringing to nought, - that, the two, he might create in himself, into one man of new mould, making peace.
