[gar] the law [nomos] worketh [katergazomai] wrath [orge]: for [gar] where [hou] no [ou] law [nomos] is [esti], there is no [oude]

Part 1 of 2
Law brings wrath, meaning causes or leads to punishment. And where there is no law, then there is no punishment because there is no transgression. The law is merely a written rule. If you violate that rule then there are consequences. If there is no written rule, then there is no violation.
Suppose you are walking down the street. If there is no rule saying that you cannot walk down the street, then you are not violating any law or rule. You can walk as you please with no worry as to legal consequences.
But if someone writes up a law that makes it a crime to walk down the street, then you are placing yourself in legal jeopardy if you walk down the street.
In the Garden, there was no written rule except one, which was that Adam and Eve could not eat of the forbidden fruit. Other than that, they could do anything they wanted.
But of course they ate and were caught and were sentenced to spiritual death as well as physical death, ‘dying thou shalt die.’
That led to eternal condemnation and separation away from God, unless there was some solution to correct that separation. And God provided the answer. A member of the Trinity would take our place as a man, and pay the price of sin and death. We have only to believe in Him in order to be saved and thus freed from our eternal condemnation.
