For the law produces wrath, but where [there] is no law, neither [is there] transgression.
Anyone who rejected the law of Moses dies without mercy on [the testimony of] two or three witnesses.
2 Corinthians 3:6
who also makes us adequate [as] servants of a new covenant, not of the letter, but of the Spirit, for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
Do not think that I will accuse you before the Father! The one who accuses you is Moses, in whom you have put your hope!
The Jews replied to him, "We have a law, and according to the law he ought to die, because he made himself out to be the Son of God!"
by this one everyone who believes is justified!
And I was alive once, apart from the law, but [when] the commandment came, sin sprang to life
and I died, and this commandment which [was] to [lead to] life was found with respect to me to [lead to] death.
For sin, seizing the opportunity through the commandment, deceived me and through it killed [me].
Therefore, [did that which is] good become death to me? May it never be! Rather [it was] sin, in order that it might be recognized [as] sin, producing death through [what is] good for me, in order that sin might become sinful to an extraordinary degree through the commandment.
For Moses writes about the righteousness [that is] from the law: "The person who does [this] will live by it."
But the law is not from faith, but "the one who does these [things] will live by them."
For when we were in the flesh, sinful desires were working through the law in our members, to bear fruit for death.
What then shall we say? [Is] the law sin? May it never be! But I would not have known sin except through the law, for I would not have known covetousness if the law had not said, "Do not covet."
But sin, seizing an opportunity through the commandment, produced in me all [kinds of] covetousness. For apart from the law, sin [is] dead.
