World English Bible (WEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Forasmuch then as Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind; for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from 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 that you no longer should live the rest of your time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God. 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 we have spent enough of our past time living in doing the desire of the Gentiles, and to have walked in lasciviousness, lusts, drunken binges, orgies, carousings, and abominable 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 They think it is strange that you don't run with them into the same excess of riot, blaspheming: 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 will give 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 was the gospel preached even to the dead, that they might be judged indeed as men in the flesh, but live as to God in 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.
