Romans 6

1Though justified by grace, we may not live in sin; since the very figure of baptism requireth us to die with Christ unto sin, that we may lead a new life of holiness unto God. 14The dispensation of grace freeth us from the dominion of sin; but we are still the servants of sin, if we obey it; therefore being freed from sin, we are bound unto holiness. 21The end and wages of sin is death; but the fruit of holiness through God's grace is eternal life.

1 What 1shall we say then? 2Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?

2 1God forbid. 2How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

3 Know ye not, that 1so many of us as awere baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?

4 Therefore we are 1buried with him by baptism into death: that 2like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so 3we also should walk in newness of life.

5 1For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:

6 Knowing this, that 1our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

7 1For he that is dead is afreed from sin.

8 1Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:

9 Knowing that Christ 1being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.

10 1For in that he died, he died unto sin once: 2but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.

11 1Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

12 1Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.

13 1Neither yield ye your members as ainstruments 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.

14 1For sin shall not have dominion over you: for 2ye are not under the law, but under grace.

15 1What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.

16 Know ye not, that 1to 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?

17 But God be thanked, that 1ye were the servants of sin, 2but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine awhich was delivered you.

18 1Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

19 1I speak after the manner of men 2because of the infirmity of your flesh: 3for 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.

20 1For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free afrom righteousness.

21 1What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? 2for the end of those things is death.

22 1But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, 2and the end everlasting life.

23 For 1the wages of sin is death; 2but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
