6:1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 6:2 By no means: how shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? 6:3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ, were baptized into his death? 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. 6:5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also [in the likeness] of [his] resurrection: 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with [him], that the body of sin may be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. 6:7 For he that is dead is freed from sin. 6:8 Now if we are dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: 6:9 Knowing that Christ, being raised from the dead, dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. 6:10 For in that he died, he died to sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth to God. 6:11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God through Jesus Christ our Lord. 6:12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts of it. 6:13 Neither yield ye your members [as] instruments of unrighteousness to sin: but yield yourselves to God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members [as] instruments of righteousness to God: 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. 6:15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? By no means. 6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants in obedience, his servants ye are whom ye obey; whether of sin to death, or of obedience to righteousness? 6:17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin; but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. 6:18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. 6:19 I speak after the manner of men, because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity, to ([work]) iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness, to ([work]) holiness. 6:20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. 6:21 What fruit had ye then in those things of which ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things [is] death. 6:22 But now being made free from sin, and having become servants to God, ye have your fruit to holiness, and the end everlasting life. 6:23 For the wages of sin [is] death: but the gift of God [is] eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
