American Standard Version (ASV) New International Version (NIV)
1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 1 What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase?
2 God forbid. We who died to sin, how shall we any longer live therein? 2 By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?
3 Or are ye ignorant that all we who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 3 Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?
4 We were buried therefore with him through baptism unto death: that like as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we also might walk in newness of life. 4 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.
5 For if we have become united with [him] in the likeness of his death, we shall be also [in the likeness] of his resurrection; 5 If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection.
6 knowing this, that our old man was crucified with [him], that the body of sin might be done away, that so we should no longer be in bondage to sin; 6 For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin--
7 for he that hath died is justified from sin. 7 because anyone who has died has been freed from sin.
8 But if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him; 8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.
9 knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death no more hath dominion over him. 9 For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him.
10 For the death that he died, he died unto sin once: but the life that he liveth, he liveth unto God. 10 The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.
11 Even so reckon ye also yourselves to be dead unto sin, but alive unto God in Christ Jesus. 11 In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey the lusts thereof: 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.
13 neither present your members unto sin [as] instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves unto God, as alive from the dead, and your members [as] instruments of righteousness unto God. 13 Do not offer the parts of your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer the parts of your body to him as instruments of righteousness.
14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under law, but under grace. 14 For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace.
15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under law, but under grace? God forbid. 15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means!
16 Know ye not, that to whom ye present yourselves [as] servants unto obedience, his servants ye are whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? 16 Don't you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves, you are slaves to the one whom you obey--whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?
17 But thanks be to God, that, whereas ye were servants of sin, ye became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching whereunto ye were delivered; 17 But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you wholeheartedly obeyed the form of teaching to which you were entrusted.
18 and being made free from sin, ye became servants of righteousness. 18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.
19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye presented your members [as] servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity, even so now present your members [as] servants to righteousness unto sanctification. 19 I put this in human terms because you are weak in your natural selves. Just as you used to offer the parts of your body in slavery to impurity and to ever-increasing wickedness, so now offer them in slavery to righteousness leading to holiness.
20 For when ye were servants of sin, ye were free in regard of righteousness. 20 When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness.
21 What fruit then had ye at that time in the things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. 21 What benefit did you reap at that time from the things you are now ashamed of ? Those things result in death!
22 But now being made free from sin and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto sanctification, and the end eternal life. 22 But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life.
23 For the wages of sin is death; but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
