Romans 6

What shall we then say? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? Far be it: for if we are persons that have died to sin, how can we again live in it? Or do ye not know, that we who are baptized into Jesus Messiah, are baptized into his death? For we are buried with him in baptism unto death; that as Jesus Messiah arose from the dead into the glory of his Father, so also we, to walk in a new life. For if we have been planted together with him into the likeness of his death, so shall we be also into his resurrection. For we know, that our old man is crucified with him; that the body of sin might be abolished, and we be no more servants to sin: for he that is dead to it, is emancipated from sin. If then we are dead with Messiah, let us believe that we shall live with the same Messiah. For we know that Messiah rose from the dead, and no more dieth; death hath no dominion over him. 10 For in dying, he died for sin, once; and in living, he liveth unto God. 11 So also do ye account yourselves as being dead to sin, and alive to God, through our Lord Jesus Messiah. 12 Therefore let not sin reign in your dead body, so that ye obey its lusts. 13 And also give not up your members as instruments of evil unto sin, but give up yourselves to God, as those who have been resuscitated from the dead; and let your members be instruments for the righteousness of God. 14 And sin shall not have dominion over you; for ye are not under the law, but under grace. 15 What then? Shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? Far be it. 16 Know ye not, that to whomsoever ye give up yourselves to serve in bondage, his servants ye are, whom ye serve; whether it be to sin, or whether it be to righteousness, that ye give ear? 17 But thanks be to God, that ye were once the servants of sin but have now from the heart obeyed that form of doctrine to which ye are devoted. 18 And when ye were emancipated from sin, ye became servants to righteousness. 19 -(I speak as among men, because of the infirmity of your flesh.)-As ye once gave up your members to the servitude of pollution and iniquity, so also now give ye up your members to the servitude of righteousness and sanctity. 20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were emancipated from righteousness. 21 And what harvest had ye then, in that of which ye are now ashamed? For the result thereof is death. 22 And now, as ye have been emancipated from sin, and have become servants to God, your fruits are holy; and the result thereof is life everlasting. 23 For the wages of sin is death; but the free gift of God is life eternal, through our Lord Jesus Messiah.
