Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 Therefore what shall we say? Shall we dwell in sin, that grace be plenteous? 1 What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase?
2 God forbid [Far be it]. For how shall we that be dead to sin, live yet therein? 2 By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?
3 Whether, brethren, ye know not, that whichever we be baptized in Christ Jesus, we be 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 be together buried with him by baptism into death; that as Christ arose from death [that as Christ rose from dead] by the glory of the Father, so [and] walk we in a 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 planted together be made to the likeness of his death, also we shall be of the likeness of his 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 witting this thing, that our old man is crucified together, that the body of sin be destroyed, that we serve no more 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 is dead [to sin], is justified from sin. 7 because anyone who has died has been freed from sin.
8 And if we be dead with Christ, we believe that also we shall live together with him; 8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.
9 witting that Christ, rising again from death [rising again from dead], now dieth not, death shall no more have lordship on 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 that he was dead to sin, he was dead once; but 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 [and] ye deem yourselves to be dead [soothly] to sin, but 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 Therefore reign not sin in your deadly body, that ye obey to his covetings. 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.
13 Neither give ye your members arms of wickedness to sin, but give ye yourselves to God, as they that live of dead men, and your members arms of rightwiseness 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 shall not have lordship over you; for ye be 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 therefore? Shall we do sin [Shall we sin], for we be not under the law, but under grace? God forbid [Far be it]. 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 give yourselves servants to obey to, ye be servants of that thing, to which ye have obeyed [Know ye not, for to whom ye give you servants to obey, ye be servants of that thing, to whom ye have obeyed], either of sin to death, either of obedience to rightwiseness? 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 I thank God, that ye were servants of sin; but ye have obeyed of heart into that form of teaching, in which ye be betaken. 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 ye delivered from sin, be made servants of rightwiseness. 18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.
19 I say that thing that is of man, for the unsteadfastness of your flesh [for the infirmity, or unstableness, of your flesh]. But as ye have given your members to serve to uncleanness, and to wickedness into wickedness, so now give ye your members to serve to rightwiseness into holiness. 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 of rightwiseness. 20 When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness.
21 Therefore what fruit had ye then in those things, in which ye shame now? 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 ye delivered from sin, and made servants to God, have your fruit into holiness, and the end everlasting 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; the grace of God is everlasting 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.
