then
Romans 8:3
For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do: sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh,
Galatians 3:21
Is the law then against the promises of God? Certainly not; for if a law had been given which could make alive, then righteousness would indeed be by the law.
But sin
Romans 7:8-11
8
But sin, finding opportunity in the commandment, wrought in me all kinds of covetousness. Apart from the law sin lies dead.
9
I was once alive apart from the law, but when the commandment came, sin revived and I died;
10

Romans 5:20

James 1:13-15
13
Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am tempted by God"; for God cannot be tempted with evil and he himself tempts no one;
14
but each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire.
15
Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin; and sin when it is full-grown brings forth death.
