Do you not 3know that when you presentyourselves to someone as 4slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of 5sinaresulting in death, or of obediencebresulting in righteousness ?
But 6thanks be to God that cthough you were slaves of sin, you becameobedient from the heart to that 7form of teaching to which you were committed,
and having been 8freed from sin, you becameslaves of righteousness.
