Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 What, then, shall we say? shall we continue in the sin that the grace may abound? 1 What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase?
2 let it not be! we who died to the sin -- how shall we still live in it? 2 By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?
3 are ye ignorant that we, as many as were baptized to Christ Jesus, to his death were baptized? 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 together, then, with him through the baptism to the death, that even as Christ was raised up out of the dead through the glory of the Father, so also we in newness of life might walk. 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 planted together to the likeness of his death, [so] also we shall be of the rising again; 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 this knowing, that our old man was crucified with [him], that the body of the sin may be made useless, for our no longer serving the 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 who hath died hath been set free from the sin. 7 because anyone who has died has been freed from sin.
8 And if we died with Christ, we believe that we also shall live with him, 8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.
9 knowing that Christ, having been raised up out of the dead, doth no more die, death over him hath no more lordship; 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 the sin he died once, and in that he liveth, he liveth to God; 10 The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.
11 so also ye, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to the sin, and living to God in Jesus Christ our Lord. 11 In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
12 Let not then the sin reign in your mortal body, to obey it in its desires; 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.
13 neither present ye your members instruments of unrighteousness to the sin, but present yourselves to God as living out of the dead, and your members instruments of righteousness to 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 over you shall not have lordship, 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? let it not be! 15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means!
16 have ye not known that to whom ye present yourselves servants for obedience, servants ye are to him to whom ye obey, whether of sin to death, or of obedience to 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 and thanks to God, that ye were servants of the sin, and -- were obedient from the heart to the form of teaching to which ye were delivered up; 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 having been freed from the sin, ye became servants to the righteousness. 18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.
19 In the manner of men I speak, because of the weakness of your flesh, for even as ye did present your members servants to the uncleanness and to the lawlessness -- to the lawlessness, so now present your members servants to the righteousness -- to 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 the sin, ye were free from the righteousness, 20 When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness.
21 what fruit, therefore, were ye having then, in the things of which ye are now ashamed? for the end of those [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 And now, having been freed from the sin, and having become servants to God, ye have your fruit -- to sanctification, and the end life age-during; 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 the sin [is] death, and the gift of God [is] life age-during 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.
