Romans 7

.. FOR 1 we know that the Law is spiritual; but I am carnal, sold under sin … For the good that I would I do not; but the evil which I would not, that I do.  1
  Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.  2
  I find then a law, that when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man; but I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin, which is in my members.  3
  O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death?  4
  I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord.  5
