    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:16

    Y si lo que no quiero, esto hago, apruebo que la ley es buena.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Romans 7:16

    Verse 16. If then I do that which I would not, &c.] Knowing that the
    law condemns it, and that therefore it must be evil. I consent unto the law; I show by this circumstance that I acknowledge the law to be good.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 16. If then I do that which I would not , etc..] This is a corollary, or an inference from what he had
    related of his own experience; that since what he did, though it was contrary to the law of God, yet was what he did not will nor allow of, but hated, it must be a clear point, that he consented to the law, that it was good ; lovely and amiable; that it forbad those things which were hateful, and commanded those things which were desirable to a good man; and so is acknowledged to be a very beautiful rule of obedience, walk, and conversation.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 14-17 - Compared with the holy rule of
    conduct in the law of God, the apostl found himself so very far short of perfection, that he seemed to be carnal; like a man who is sold against his will to a hated master, from whom he cannot set himself at liberty. A real Christian unwillingl serves this hated master, yet cannot shake off the galling chain, til his powerful and gracious Friend above, rescues him. The remaining evi of his heart is a real and humbling hinderance to his serving God a angels do and the spirits of just made perfect. This strong languag was the result of St. Paul's great advance in holiness, and the dept of his self-abasement and hatred of sin. If we do not understand thi language, it is because we are so far beneath him in holiness knowledge of the spirituality of God's law, and the evil of our ow hearts, and hatred of moral evil. And many believers have adopted the apostle's language, showing that it is suitable to their deep feeling of abhorrence of sin, and self-abasement. The apostle enlarges on the conflict he daily maintained with the remainder of his origina depravity. He was frequently led into tempers, words, or actions, whic he did not approve or allow in his renewed judgement and affections. By distinguishing his real self, his spiritual part, from the self, or flesh, in which sin dwelt, and by observing that the evil actions wer done, not by him, but by sin dwelling in him, the apostle did not mea that men are not accountable for their sins, but he teaches the evil of their sins, by showing that they are all done against reason an conscience. Sin dwelling in a man, does not prove its ruling, or havin dominion over him. If a man dwells in a city, or in a country, still he may not rule there.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    16. I consent (sumfhmi). Lit., speak together with; concur with, since the
    law also does not desire what I do. Only here in the New Testament.

    Good (kalov). See on John x. 11, 32; Matt. xxvi. 10; Jas. ii. 7. Morally excellent.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    7:16 {I consent unto the law} (sunfemi twi nomwi). Old verb, here only in N.T., with associative instrumental case. "I speak with." My wanting (qelw) to do the opposite of what I do proves my acceptance of God's law as good (kalos).
