Bible: Romans 7:1-3
The Believer’s Relationship to the Law
7:1 Or do you not know, brothers and sisters 1 (for I am speaking to those who know the law), that the law is lord over a person 2 as long as he lives? 7:2 For a married woman is bound by law to her husband as long as he lives, but if her 3 husband dies, she is released from the law of the marriage. 4 7:3 So then, 5 if she is joined to another man while her husband is alive, she will be called an adulteress. But if her 6 husband dies, she is free from that law, and if she is joined to another man, she is not an adulteress.
