Romans 7:2

Context
7:2 For a married woman is bound by law to her husband as long as he lives, but if her 1  husband dies, she is released from the law of the marriage. 2 

Romans 7:4

Context
7:4 So, my brothers and sisters, 3  you also died to the law through the body of Christ, so that you could be joined to another, to the one who was raised from the dead, to bear fruit to God. 4 

1 tn Grk “the,” with the article used as a possessive pronoun (ExSyn 215).

2 tn Grk “husband.”

sn Paul’s example of the married woman and the law of the marriage illustrates that death frees a person from obligation to the law. Thus, in spiritual terms, a person who has died to what controlled us (v. 6) has been released from the law to serve God in the new life produced by the Spirit.

3 tn Grk “brothers.” See note on the phrase “brothers and sisters” in 1:13.

4 tn Grk “that we might bear fruit to God.”
