1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound ?
2 God forbid * . How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein *?
3 Know ye not , that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of 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:
6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed , that henceforth we should not serve sin.
7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.
10 For in that he died , he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth , he liveth unto God.
14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
15 What then? shall we sin , because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid * .
17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you .
18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.
21 What * fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed ? for the end of those things is death.
