    Ro 6:3

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:1

    ¶ ¿O ignoris, hermanos (hablo con los que saben la ley), que la ley solamente se enseorea del hombre entre tanto que vive?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Romans 7:1

    Verse 1. For I speak to them that know the
    law] This is a proof that the apostle directs this part of his discourse to the Jews.

    As long as he liveth?] Or, as long as IT liveth; law does not extend its influence to the dead, nor do abrogated laws bind. It is all the same whether we understand these words as speaking of a law abrogated, so that it cannot command; or of its objects being dead, so that it has none to bind. In either case the law has no force.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. Know ye not, brethren , etc..] The apostle having asserted, ( Romans 6:14), that the believing Romans were not under the law; which he knew would be displeasing to many, and excepted to by them, especially the Jews that were among them, who though they believed in Christ, yet were zealous of the law, takes it up again, and explains and defends it. That they were the Jewish converts at Rome he here particularly addresses, appears partly from his calling them brethren, for they were so according to the flesh, as well as in a spiritual relation, and this he rather mentions to soften their resentments, and conciliate their minds to him; and partly from the words included in a parenthesis, for I speak to them that know the law ; not the law of nature, but the law of Moses, as the Jews did, being trained up in the knowledge of it; to these he appeals, saying, know ye not, for the truth of a principle or maxim he afterwards improves, which they could not be ignorant of, how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he , or it, liveth ; for the word liveth may refer either to man or to the law. The law may be said to live, when it is in full force, and to be dead, when it is abrogated and disannulled; now whilst it lives, or is in force, it has dominion over a man; it can require and command obedience of him, and in case of disobedience can condemn him, and inflict punishment on him: and this power it has also as long as the man lives who is under it, but when he is dead it has no more dominion over him; then the servant is free from his master, ( Job 3:19); that is, from the law of his master; and children are free from the law of their parents, the wife from the law of her husband, and subjects from the law of their prince. This is so clear a point that none can doubt of it. The Jews have a saying f123 , that when a man is dead, he becomes twxmh mw hrwt m ypj , free from the law, and from the commands.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-6 - So
    long as a man continues under the law as a covenant, and seek justification by his own obedience, he continues the slave of sin in some form. Nothing but the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus, can make an sinner free from the law of sin and death. Believers are delivered from that power of the law, which condemns for the sins committed by them And they are delivered from that power of the law which stirs up an provokes the sin that dwells in them. Understand this not of the law a a rule, but as a covenant of works. In profession and privilege, we ar under a covenant of grace, and not under a covenant of works; under the gospel of Christ, not under the law of Moses. The difference is spoke of under the similitude or figure of being married to a new husband The second marriage is to Christ. By death we are freed from obligatio to the law as a covenant, as the wife is from her vows to her husband In our believing powerfully and effectually, we are dead to the law and have no more to do with it than the dead servant, who is freed from his master, has to do with his master's yoke. The day of our believing is the day of being united to the Lord Jesus. We enter upon a life of dependence on him, and duty to him. Good works are from union with Christ; as the fruitfulness of the vine is the product of its being united to its roots; there is no fruit to God, till we are united to Christ. The law, and the greatest efforts of one under the law, stil in the flesh, under the power of corrupt principles, cannot set the heart right with regard to the love of God, overcome worldly lusts, or give truth and sincerity in the inward parts, or any thing that come by the special sanctifying influences of the Holy Spirit. Nothing mor than a formal obedience to the outward letter of any precept, can be performed by us, without the renewing, new-creating grace of the ne covenant.
