2 1May it never be! How shall we who 2died to sin still live in it?
3 Or do you not know that all of us who have been 3baptized into 4Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death?
4 Therefore we have been 5buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was 6raised from the dead through the 7glory of the Father, so we too might walk in 8newness of life.
5 For 9if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection,
6 knowing this, that our 10old self was 11crucified with Him, in order that our 12body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin;
7 for 13he who has died is freed from sin.
8 Now 14if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him,
9 knowing that Christ, having been 15raised from the dead, is never to die again; 16death no longer is master over Him.
10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.
11 Even so consider yourselves to be 17dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
