6 knowing this, that our 1old self was 2crucified with Him, in order that our 3body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin;
7 for 4he who has died is freed from sin.
8 Now 5if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him,
9 knowing that Christ, having been 6raised from the dead, is never to die again; 7death no longer is master over Him.
10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.
11 Even so consider yourselves to be 8dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
12 Therefore do not let sin 9reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts,
13 and do not go on 10presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but 11present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.
14 For 12sin shall not 13be master over you, for 14you are not under law but 15under grace.
15 What then? 16Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? 17May it never be!
16 Do you not 18know that when you present yourselves to someone as 19slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of 20sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness?
17 But 21thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that 22form of teaching to which you were committed,
18 and having been 23freed from sin, you became slaves of righteousness.
20 For 26when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness.
21 Therefore what 27benefit were you then deriving from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the outcome of those things is 28death.
22 But now having been 29freed from sin and 30enslaved to God, you derive your 31benefit, resulting in sanctification, and 32the outcome, eternal life.
23 For the wages of 33sin is death, but the free gift of God is 34eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
