Douay-Rheims (RHE) 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! For we that are dead to sin, how shall we live any longer therein? 2 By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?
3 Know you not that all we who are baptized in Christ Jesus are baptized in his death? 3 Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?
4 For we are buried together with him by baptism into death: that, as Christ is risen from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we also may 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 been planted together 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 is crucified with him, that the body of sin may be destroyed, to the end that we may serve sin no longer. 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 is dead is justified from sin. 7 because anyone who has died has been freed from sin.
8 Now, if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall live also together with Christ. 8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.
9 Knowing that Christ, rising again from the dead, dieth now no more. Death shall no more have 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 in that he died to sin, he died once: but in 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 So do you also reckon that you are dead to sin, but alive unto God, in Christ Jesus our Lord. 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, so as to obey the lusts thereof. 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.
13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of iniquity unto sin: but present yourselves to God, as those that are alive from the dead; and your members as instruments of justice 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 you are not under the 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 the 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 you not that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are whom you obey, whether it be of sin unto death or of obedience unto justice. 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 you were the servants of sin but have obeyed from the heart unto that form of doctrine into which you have been 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 Being then freed from sin, we have been made servants of justice. 18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.
19 I speak an human thing, because of the infirmity of your flesh. For as you have yielded your members to serve uncleanness and iniquity, unto iniquity: so now yield your members to serve justice, 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 you were the servants of sin, you were free men to justice. 20 When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness.
21 What fruit therefore had you then in those things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of them 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, you have your fruit unto sanctification, and the end life everlasting. 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 grace of God, life everlasting 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.
