8Nowif we be deadwithChrist, we believethat we shallalsolive with him:9KnowingthatChrist being raisedfrom the deaddieth no more;deathhath no more dominion overhim.10Forin that he died , he died unto sinonce:but in that he liveth , he liveth unto God.11Likewisereckonyealsoyourselves to bedeadindeed unto sin,butalive unto GodthroughJesusChristourLord.12Letnotsinthereforereigninyourmortalbody,that ye should obeyitin the luststhereof.13Neither yield yeyourmembers as instrumentsa of unrighteousness unto sin:butyieldyourselves unto God,as those that are alivefrom the dead,andyourmembers as instruments of righteousness unto God.14Forsinshallnot have dominion overyou:for ye arenotunder the law,butundergrace.15Whatthen? shall we sin , because we arenotunder the law,butundergrace? God forbid .
Know yenot,that to whom ye yieldyourselvesservantstoobey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey ; whether of sin untodeath,or of obedience untorighteousness?17ButGod be thanked,that ye were the servants of sin,but ye have obeyedfrom the heart that form of doctrinewhichbwas delivered you .
18Beingthen made freefromsin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
