Bible: Romans 7:14-21

7:14 For we know that the law is spiritual – but I am unspiritual, sold into slavery to sin. 1  7:15 For I don’t understand what I am doing. For I do not do what I want – instead, I do what I hate. 2  7:16 But if I do what I don’t want, I agree that the law is good. 3  7:17 But now it is no longer me doing it, but sin that lives in me. 7:18 For I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my flesh. For I want to do the good, but I cannot do it. 4  7:19 For I do not do the good I want, but I do the very evil I do not want! 7:20 Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer me doing it but sin that lives in me.

7:21 So, I find the law that when I want to do good, evil is present with me.
