1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that a may abound?
2 a. How shall we, that are dead to b, live any longer therein?
3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were a into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
4 Therefore we are a with him by b into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the c by the glory of the Father, even so we also should d in e of life.
5 For if we have been planted together in the a of his b, we shall be also in the likeness of his c:
6 Knowing this, that our a man is crucified with him, that the b of sin might be c, that henceforth we should not serve d.
7 For he that is a is b from sin.
8 Now if we be a with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:
9 Knowing that Christ being a from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
10 For in that he died, he died unto a b: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but a unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
12 Let not sin therefore reign in your a body, that ye should obey it in the b thereof.
13 Neither a ye your b as c of unrighteousness unto sin: but d yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of e unto God.
14 a shall not have b 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 a? b.
16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves a to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye b; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have a from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
18 Being then made a from b, ye became the servants of righteousness.
19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.
20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were a righteousness.
21 What a had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.
22 But now being made a from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your b unto c, and the end everlasting life.
23 For the a of b is c; but the d of God is e through Jesus Christ our Lord.
