Romans 7:10-11

_ _ And — thus.

_ _ the commandment, which was, etc. — designed

_ _ to — give

_ _ life — through the keeping of it.

_ _ I found to be unto death — through breaking it.

_ _ For sin — my sinful nature.

_ _ taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me — or “seduced me” — drew me aside into the very thing which the commandment forbade.

_ _ and by it slew me — “discovered me to myself to be a condemned and gone man” (compare Romans 7:9, “I died”).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 7:7-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 7:10

The commandment which was intended for life — Doubtless it was originally intended by God as a grand means of preserving and increasing spiritual life, and leading to life everlasting.
