Romans 7:5

Context
7:5 For when we were in the flesh, 1  the sinful desires, 2  aroused by the law, were active in the members of our body 3  to bear fruit for death.

Romans 7:25

Context
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.

1 tn That is, before we were in Christ.

2 tn Or “sinful passions.”

3 tn Grk “our members”; the words “of our body” have been supplied to clarify the meaning.

4 tc ‡ Most mss (א* A 1739 1881 Ï sy) read “I give thanks to God” rather than “Now thanks be to God” (א1 [B] Ψ 33 81 104 365 1506 pc), the reading of NA27. The reading with the verb (εὐχαριστῶ τῷ θεῷ, eucaristw tw qew) possibly arose from a transcriptional error in which several letters were doubled (TCGNT 455). The conjunction δέ (de, “now”) is included in some mss as well (א1 Ψ 33 81 104 365 1506 pc), but it should probably not be considered original. The ms support for the omission of δέ is both excellent and widespread (א* A B D 1739 1881 Ï lat sy), and its addition can be explained as an insertion to smooth out the transition between v. 24 and 25.

5 tn There is a double connective here that cannot be easily preserved in English: “consequently therefore,” emphasizing the conclusion of what he has been arguing.

6 tn Greek emphasizes the contrast between these two clauses more than can be easily expressed in English.

7 tn The words “I serve” have been repeated here for clarity.
