15 What then? 1Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? 2May it never be!
16 Do you not 3know that when you present yourselves to someone as 4slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of 5sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness?
17 But 6thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that 7form of teaching to which you were committed,
18 and having been 8freed from sin, you became slaves of righteousness.
