Sin is a transgression against God’s holy law an act of rebellion against Him. Sin is knowing what is right and not doing it.
For our transgressions are multiplied before thee, and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them;
In transgressing and lying against the Lord, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.

For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.
