Romans 7:11 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
For sin - This verse is a repetition, with a little variation of the sentiment in Romans 7:8.
Deceived me - The word used here properly means to lead or seduce from the right way; and then to deceive, solicit to sin, cause to err from the way of virtue, Romans 16:18; 1 Corinthians 3:18; 2 Corinthians 11:3, "The serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty," 2 Thessalonians 2:3. The meaning here seems to be, that his corrupt and rebellious propensities, excited by the Law, led him astray; caused him more and more to sin; practiced a species of deception on him by urging him on headlong, and without deliberation, into aggravated transgression. In this sense, all sinners are deceived. Their passions urge them on, deluding them, and leading them further and further from happiness, and involving them, before they are aware, in crime and death. No being in the universe is more deladed than a sinner in the indulgence of evil passions. The description of Solomon in a particular case will apply to all, Proverbs 7:21-23.

He goeth after her straightway,
As an ox goeth to the slaughter,

Till a dart strike through his liver,
As a bird hasteth to the snare."
By it - By the Law, Romans 7:8.
Slew me - Meaning the same as "I died," Romans 7:8.

ROMANS vii. 10.--"The commandment which, was ordained to life, I found to be unto death." The reader of St. Paul's Epistles is struck with the seemingly disparaging manner in which he speaks of the moral law. In one place, he tells his reader that "the law entered that the offence might abound;" in another, that "the law worketh wrath;" in another, that "sin shall not have dominion" over the believer because he is "not under the law;" in another, that Christians "are become dead to the law;" in …

There are Therefore in us Evil Desires, by Consenting not unto which we Live...
Then the LORD God said to the woman, "What is this you have done?" And the woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate."
"The heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; Who can understand it?
because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin.
But sin, taking opportunity through the commandment, produced in me coveting of every kind; for apart from the Law sin is dead.
