DO YOU not know, brethren–
for I am speaking to men who are acquainted with the Law–
that legal claims have power over a person
only for as long as he is alive?
Likewise, my brethren,
you have undergone death as to the Law
through the [crucified] body of Christ
O unhappy and pitiable and wretched man that I am!
Who will release and deliver me
from [the shackles of] this body of death?
THEREFORE, [there is] now no condemnation
(no adjudging guilty of wrong)
for those who are in Christ Jesus
