Romans 6

Believers Are Dead to Sin, Alive to God

1 a  What shall we say then? Are we to b  continue in sin so that grace may increase? 2 c  May it never be! How shall we who d  died to sin still live in it? 3Or do you not know that all of us who have been e  baptized into f  Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? 4Therefore we have been g  buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was h  raised from the dead through the i  glory of the Father, so we too might walk in j  newness of life. 5For k  if we have become
Or united with the likeness
united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be
Or with
in the likeness of His resurrection,
6knowing this, that our n  old
Gr anthropos
self was p  crucified with Him, in order that our q  body of sin might be
Or made powerless
done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin;
7for s  he who has died is
Or acquitted
freed from sin.

8Now u  if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, 9knowing that Christ, having been v  raised from the dead
Lit no longer dies
is never to die again; x  death no longer is master over Him.
10For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. 11Even so consider yourselves to be y  dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

12Therefore do not let sin z  reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, 13and do not go on aa  presenting
Lit your members to sin
the members of your body to sin as
Or weapons
instruments of unrighteousness; but ad  present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as
Or weapons
instruments of righteousness to God.
14For af  sin shall not ag  be master over you, for ah  you are not under law but ai  under grace.

15What then? aj  Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? ak  May it never be! 16Do you not al  know that when you present yourselves to someone as am  slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of an  sin
Lit to death
resulting in death, or of obedience
Lit to righteousness
resulting in righteousness?
17But aq  thanks be to God that
Lit you were slaves...but you became
though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that as  form of teaching to which you were committed,
18and having been at  freed from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. 19 au  I am speaking in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just av  as you presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness
Lit to lawlessness
resulting in further lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness
Lit to sanctification
resulting in sanctification.

20For ay  when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. 21Therefore what
Lit fruit
ba  benefit were you then
Lit having
Lit in
from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the outcome of those things is bd  death.
22But now having been be  freed from sin and bf  enslaved to God, you
Lit have
derive your
Lit fruit
bi  benefit
Lit to sanctification
resulting in sanctification, and bk  the outcome, eternal life.
23For the wages of bl  sin is death, but the free gift of God is bm  eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
