Romans 7 chain 7th Commandment

Thou shalt not commit adultery. 7th Commandment

Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth? For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man. Romans 7:1ff

Romans 7 opens with words that link directly to the Seventh Commandment, just as Romans 9 links directly to the Ninth Commandment. Such patterns are found throughout the entire chapter structure of Scripture. Case in point, Spoke 7 of the Inner Cycle of the Psalms also integrates with the Seventh Commandment (see Psalm 51: David and Bathsheba).

The Motions of Sin

Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God. For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.

Romans 7

The essence of the Romans 7 is seen in the motions of sin in the body of the believer, agitated by the Holy Law. Its relation to adultery manifests in popular culture in the idea of the Seven Year Itch - the Marylin Monroe movie that broke Hollywood's taboos against films joking about adultery. It incredible to see the patterns of pop culture flowing along the lines established in the everlasting structure of Scripture (cf. Gay Pride).

We have here the essence of the dynamic tension between the Numbers Four and Seven which are linked in the Fourth Commandment - Sabbath (7th Day) Rest (Cessation of Motion, Death, and the Number 4). This tension is seen in the vibrant, busy, buzzing nature of the Letter Zayin.

I must admit that I was very hesitant to publish this image of the movie poster. A dear brother in Christ wrote to me saying that "vice calleth unto vice" and requested that I remove it. And this demonstrates the power of the Holy Law. Many of us see images much more explicit than this relic from the relatively tame 1950s with little or no response from our conscience. But when placed under the immediate light of the Seventh Commandment, it screams with indecency.
