'Law' in the Bible
For as many as have sinned without law shall perish also without law; and as many as have sinned under law shall be judged by law,
(for not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
For when those of the nations, which have no law, practise by nature the things of the law, these, having no law, are a law to themselves;
who shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts accusing or else excusing themselves between themselves;)
But if thou art named a Jew, and restest in the law, and makest thy boast in God,
and knowest the will, and discerningly approvest the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the law;
an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, having the form of knowledge and of truth in the law:
thou who boastest in law, dost thou by transgression of the law dishonour God?
For circumcision indeed profits if thou keep the law; but if thou be a law-transgressor, thy circumcision is become uncircumcision.
If therefore the uncircumcision keep the requirements of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be reckoned for circumcision,
and uncircumcision by nature, fulfilling the law, judge thee, who, with letter and circumcision, art a law-transgressor?
Now we know that whatever the things the law says, it speaks to those under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world be under judgment to God.
Wherefore by works of law no flesh shall be justified before him; for by law is knowledge of sin.
But now without law righteousness of God is manifested, borne witness to by the law and the prophets;
Where then is boasting? It has been excluded. By what law? of works? Nay, but by law of faith;
for we reckon that a man is justified by faith, without works of law.
Do we then make void law by faith? Far be the thought: no, but we establish law.
For it was not by law that the promise was to Abraham, or to his seed, that he should be heir of the world, but by righteousness of faith.
For if they which are of law be heirs, faith is made vain, and the promise made of no effect.
For law works wrath; but where no law is neither is there transgression.
Therefore it is on the principle of faith, that it might be according to grace, in order to the promise being sure to all the seed, not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of Abraham's faith, who is father of us all,
(for until law sin was in the world; but sin is not put to account when there is no law;
But law came in, in order that the offence might abound; but where sin abounded grace has overabounded,
For sin shall not have dominion over you, for ye are not under law but under grace.
What then? should we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Far be the thought.
Are ye ignorant, brethren, (for I speak to those knowing law,) that law rules over a man as long as he lives?
For the married woman is bound by law to her husband so long as he is alive; but if the husband should die, she is clear from the law of the husband:
so then, the husband being alive, she shall be called an adulteress if she be to another man; but if the husband should die, she is free from the law, so as not to be an adulteress, though she be to another man.
So that, my brethren, ye also have been made dead to the law by the body of the Christ, to be to another, who has been raised up from among the dead, in order that we might bear fruit to God.
For when we were in the flesh the passions of sins, which were by the law, wrought in our members to bring forth fruit to death;
but now we are clear from the law, having died in that in which we were held, so that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in oldness of letter.
What shall we say then? is the law sin? Far be the thought. But I had not known sin, unless by law: for I had not had conscience also of lust unless the law had said, Thou shalt not lust;
but sin, getting a point of attack by the commandment, wrought in me every lust; for without law sin was dead.
But I was alive without law once; but the commandment having come, sin revived, but I died.
So that the law indeed is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.
For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am fleshly, sold under sin.
But if what I do not will, this I practise, I consent to the law that it is right.
I find then the law upon me who will to practise what is right, that with me evil is there.
For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man:
but I see another law in my members, warring in opposition to the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which exists in my members.
I thank God, through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then I myself with the mind serve God's law; but with the flesh sin's law.
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and of death.
For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God, having sent his own Son, in likeness of flesh of sin, and for sin, has condemned sin in the flesh,
in order that the righteous requirement of the law should be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to flesh but according to Spirit.
Because the mind of the flesh is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God; for neither indeed can it be:
But Israel, pursuing after a law of righteousness, has not attained to that law.
For Christ is the end of law for righteousness to every one that believes.
For Moses lays down in writing the righteousness which is of the law, The man who has practised those things shall live by them.
Owe no one anything, unless to love one another: for he that loves another has fulfilled the law.
Love works no ill to its neighbour; love therefore is the whole law.
