A wretched man I [am]! who shall deliver me out of the body of this death?
- Youngs Literal Bible
7:24 Wretched man that I am - The struggle is now come to the height; and the man, finding there is no help in himself, begins almost unawares to pray, Who shall deliver me? He then seeks and looks for deliverance, till God in Christ appears to answer his question. The word which we translate deliver, implies force. And indeed without this there can be no deliverance. The body of this death - That is, this body of death; this mass of sin, leading to death eternal, and cleaving as close to me as my body to my soul. We may observe, the deliverance is not wrought yet.
Ro 7:24 O wretched man that I am! Wretched because he has no power in himself of deliverance. Who shall deliver me from the body of this death? He is a captive, a captive to the body, the members of which are controlled by sin. Hence, he is a helpless slave of sin, and as such is under the condemnation of death. The body, the seat of the fleshly desires, has become "a body of death", since it is controlled by sin. Who shall deliver him from its power? In Ro 7:14-24 Paul has described the bondage of the will to the flesh which is the condition of the natural man, and closes with the cry for deliverance.

It is difficult to imagine that this exhausting struggle between flesh and spirit would be occurring in the life of the beloved Paul. Yet here he comes completely clean in admitting that indeed he does have the struggle going on in him. There a continual internal warfare going on inside of Paul and of every righteous Christian. Thank God that the resolution of this raging series of battles is resolved in Christ who redeems us from the curse of the law and raises us with Christ to the victory of the Spirit through our precious Redeemer Jesus Christ. The weak difference in me is made up in the mighty power of Christ and when I truly team up with and surrender to Him I know I will eventually and always win.

This cry is a of one who truly seeks to be delivered from sin and the power thereof.
