The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 Christ, then, having suffered for us in [the] flesh, do *ye* also arm yourselves with the same mind; for he that has suffered in [the] flesh has done with sin, 1 Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because he who has suffered in his body is done with sin.
2 no longer to live the rest of [his] time in [the] flesh to men's lusts, but to God's will. 2 As a result, he does not live the rest of his earthly life for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God.
3 For the time past [is] sufficient [for us] to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, walking in lasciviousness, lusts, wine-drinking, revels, drinkings, and unhallowed idolatries. 3 For you have spent enough time in the past doing what pagans choose to do--living in debauchery, lust, drunkenness, orgies, carousing and detestable idolatry.
4 Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with [them] to the same sink of corruption, speaking injuriously [of you]; 4 They think it strange that you do not plunge with them into the same flood of dissipation, and they heap abuse on you.
5 who shall render account to him who is ready to judge [the] living and [the] dead. 5 But they will have to give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.
6 For to this [end] were the glad tidings preached to [the] dead also, that they might be judged, as regards men, after [the] flesh, but live, as regards God, after [the] Spirit. 6 For this is the reason the gospel was preached even to those who are now dead, so that they might be judged according to men in regard to the body, but live according to God in regard to the spirit.
