Bible: Rom. 7:15-25; 8:3-13
7:21 So, I find the law that when I want to do good, evil is present with me. 7:22 For I delight in the law of God in my inner being. 7:23 But I see a different law in my members waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that is in my members. 7:24 Wretched man that I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? 7:25 Thanks be 4 to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, 5 I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but 6 with my flesh I serve 7 the law of sin.
8:8 Then Noah 10 sent out a dove 11 to see if the waters had receded 12 from the surface of the ground. 8:9 The dove could not find a resting place for its feet because water still covered 13 the surface of the entire earth, and so it returned to Noah 14 in the ark. He stretched out his hand, took the dove, 15 and brought it back into the ark. 16 8:10 He waited seven more days and then sent out the dove again from the ark. 8:11 When 17 the dove returned to him in the evening, there was 18 a freshly plucked olive leaf in its beak! Noah knew that the waters had receded from the earth. 8:12 He waited another seven days and sent the dove out again, 19 but it did not return to him this time. 20
8:13 In Noah’s six hundred and first year, 21 in the first day of the first month, the waters had dried up from the earth, and Noah removed the covering from the ark and saw that 22 the surface of the ground was dry.
