YLT(i) 7 What, then, shall we say? the law is sin? let it not be! but the sin I did not know except through law, for also the covetousness I had not known if the law had not said: 8 `Thou shalt not covet;' and the sin having received an opportunity, through the command, did work in me all covetousness—for apart from law sin is dead. 9 And I was alive apart from law once, and the command having come, the sin revived, and I died; 10 and the command that is for life, this was found by me for death; 11 for the sin, having received an opportunity, through the command, did deceive me, and through it did slay me; 12 so that the law, indeed, is holy, and the command holy, and righteous, and good.
