11What shall we saythen? Are we to 2continue in sinso that grace may increase?
23May it never be! How shall we who4died to sinstilllive in it?
3Or do you not know that all of us who have been 5baptized into 6ChristJesus have been baptized into His death?
4Therefore we have been 7buried with Him throughbaptism into death, so that as Christ was 8raised from the deadthrough the 9glory of the Father, so we too might walk in 10newness of life.
For 11if we have becomeaunited with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be bin the likeness of His resurrection,
6knowingthis, that our 12oldcself was 13crucified with Him, in order that our 14body of sin might be ddoneaway with, so that we would nolonger be slaves to sin;
for 15he who has died is efreed from sin.
8Now16if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall alsolive with Him,
9knowing that Christ, having been 17raised from the dead, fis never to dieagain; 18deathnolonger is masterover Him.
For the death that He died, He died to sinonce for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.
11Evensoconsideryourselves to be 19dead to sin, but alive to God in ChristJesus.
12Therefore do not let sin20reign in your mortalbodyso that you obey its lusts,
and do not go on 21presentinggthe members of your body to sin as hinstruments of unrighteousness; but 22presentyourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as iinstruments of righteousness to God.
For 23sin shall not 24be masterover you, for 25you are not underlaw but 26undergrace.
