Romans 6


Dying to Sin

What then shall we say? Shall we remain in sin that favor should be superabundant? May it not be. We who died to sin, how shall we still live in it? Or do you not know that as many as we were immersed unto Christ Jesus, unto his death we were immersed? We were buried together then with him through the immersion into death; that as [2arose 1Christ] from the dead by the glory of the father, so also we in newness of life should walk. For if [2planted together 1we have become] in the likeness of his death, so also of his resurrection we shall be. Knowing this, that our old man was crucified along with him, that [4should cease work 1the 2body 3of sin], that [2no longer 3are to be a slave 1we] to sin. For the one having died has been justified from sin. And if we died with Christ, we trust that also we shall live together with him; knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, no longer dies; death [3him 1no longer 2dominates]. 10 For the fact he died, [2sin 1he died to] once for all; but the fact he lives, he lives to God. 11 So also you impute yourselves [2dead 3indeed 1to be] to the sin, but being alive to God, in Christ Jesus our Lord. 12 [3not 1Then 2let 5reign 4sin] in your mortal body! for the obeying it in its desires. 13 Nor present your members as weapons of iniquity to sin! But render yourselves to God! as [2from out of 3the dead 1one living], and your members as weapons of righteousness to God. 14 For sin [3you 1shall not 2dominate]; [3not 1for 2you are] under law, but under favor. 15 What then, should we sin that we are not under law, but under favor? May it not be. 16 Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves servants to obedience, servants you are to whom you obey; either sin unto death, or obedience unto righteousness? 17 But favor to God, for you were slaves of sin, but you obeyed from the heart in which [3you were delivered by 1model 2of teaching]. 18 And having been set free from sin, you were enslaved to righteousness. 19 Humanly I speak, on account of the weakness of your flesh; for as you rendered your members subservient to uncleanness and to lawlessness unto lawlessness; so now render your members subservient to the righteousness unto sanctification! 20 For when you were servants of sin, you were free in the righteousness. 21 What fruit therefore had you then, in the things in which now you are ashamed? For the end of those things is death. 22 But now having been set free from the sin, and having been enslaved to God, you have your fruit unto sanctification, and the end -- life eternal. 23 For the rations of sin are death; but the favor of God is life eternal in Christ Jesus our Lord.
