1: What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? edit

2: God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? edit

3: Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? edit

4: Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. edit

5: For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: edit

6: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. edit

7: For he that is dead is freed from sin. edit

8: Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: edit

9: Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. edit

10: For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. edit

11: Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. edit

12: Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. edit

13: Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. edit

14: For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. edit

15: What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. edit

16: Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? edit

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. edit

18: Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. edit

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 unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness. edit

20: For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. edit

21: What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. edit

22: But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. edit

23: For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. edit
