Romans 7:2-4 The Passion Translation (TPT)

For example, a married couple is bound by the law to remain together until separated by death. But when one spouse dies, the other is released from the law of the marriage. So then if a wife is joined to another man while still married, she commits adultery. But if her husband dies, she is obviously free from the marriage contract and may marry another man without being charged with adultery.[a]

So, my dear brothers and sisters, the same principle applies to your relationship with God. For you died to your first husband, the law, by being co-crucified with the body of the Messiah. So you are now free to “marry” another—the one who was raised from the dead so that you may now bear spiritual fruit[b] for God.


  1. Romans 7:3 Or “if joined to another man, she is not an adulteress.”
  2. Romans 7:4 Or “offspring.”
