Romans 6

Believers Are Dead to Sin, Alive to God

a What shall we say then? Are we to b continue in sin so that grace may increase? c May it never be! How shall we who d died to sin still live in it? Or do you not know that all of us who have been e baptized into f Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? Therefore 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. For 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,
knowing 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;
for s he who has died is
Or acquitted
freed from sin.

Now u if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing 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.
10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. 11 Even so consider yourselves to be y dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

12 Therefore do not let sin z reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, 13 and 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.
14 For af sin shall not ag be master over you, for ah you are not under law but ai under grace.

15 What then? aj Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? ak May it never be! 16 Do 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?
17 But 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,
18 and 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.

20 For ay when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. 21 Therefore what
Lit fruit
,
ba benefit were you then
Lit having
deriving
Lit in
from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the outcome of those things is bd death.
22 But 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.
23 For the wages of bl sin is death, but the free gift of God is bm eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
