Romans 6

LEB 1 What therefore shall we say? Shall we continue in sin, in order that grace may increase? NIV 1 What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? LEB 2 May it never be! How can we who died to sin still live in it? NIV 2 By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? LEB 3 Or do you not know that as many as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? NIV 3 Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? LEB 4 Therefore we have been buried with him through baptism into death, in order that just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so also we may live {a new way of life}. NIV 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. LEB 5 For if we have become identified with [him] in the likeness of his death, certainly also we will be [identified with him in the likeness] of [his] resurrection, NIV 5 If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection. LEB 6 knowing this, that our old man was crucified together with [him], in order that the body of sin may be done away with, [that] we may no longer be enslaved to sin. NIV 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-- LEB 7 For the one who has died has been freed from sin. NIV 7 because anyone who has died has been freed from sin. LEB 8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him, NIV 8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. LEB 9 knowing that Christ, [because he] has been raised from the dead, is going to die no more, death no longer being master over him. NIV 9 For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. LEB 10 For that [death] he died, he died to sin once and never again, but that [life] he lives, he lives to God. NIV 10 The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. LEB 11 So also you, consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus. NIV 11 In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. LEB 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, so that [you] obey its desires, NIV 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. LEB 13 and do not present your members to sin [as] instruments of unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who are alive from the dead, and your members to God [as] instruments of righteousness. NIV 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. LEB 14 For sin will not be master over you, because you are not under law, but under grace. NIV 14 For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace. LEB 15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? May it never be! NIV 15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means! LEB 16 Do you not know that to whomever you present yourselves [as] slaves for obedience, you are slaves to whomever you obey, whether sin, [leading] to death, or obedience, [leading] to righteousness? NIV 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? LEB 17 But thanks [be] to God that you were slaves of sin, but you have obeyed from the heart the pattern of teaching to which you were entrusted, NIV 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. LEB 18 and having been set free from sin, you became enslaved to righteousness. NIV 18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness. LEB 19 (I am speaking in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh.) For just as you presented your members [as] slaves to immorality and lawlessness, [leading] to lawlessness, so now present your members [as] slaves to righteousness, [leading] to sanctification. NIV 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. LEB 20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free with respect to righteousness. NIV 20 When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness. LEB 21 Therefore what sort of fruit did you have then, about which you are now ashamed? For the end of those [things] [is] death. NIV 21 What benefit did you reap at that time from the things you are now ashamed of ? Those things result in death! LEB 22 But now, having been set free from sin and having been enslaved to God, you have your fruit [leading] to sanctification, and its end [is] eternal life. NIV 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. LEB 23 For the compensation due sin [is] death, but the gift of God [is] eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. NIV 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
