“For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.”
King James Version (KJV)
7:5 When ye were in the flesh - Carnally minded, in a state of nature; before we believed in Christ. Our sins which were by the law - Accidentally occasioned, or irritated thereby. Wrought in our members - Spread themselves all over the whole man.
Ro 7:5 For when we were in the flesh. When we were in an unconverted condition, under the influence of our carnal nature. The insufficiency of law to deliver us from its power is now shown. Which were by the law. How the law set in motion these sinful passions is set forth in Ro 7:7,8. See notes on them. Did work in our members. Seized the control of our bodily organs, and thus made us so sin as to be subject to the penalty of death. See Ro 6:21 Jas 1:15.
