NASB — Romans 6 — KJV

Believers Are Dead to Sin, Alive to God

1 aWhat shall we say then? Are we to bcontinue in sin so that grace may increase? 2 aMay it never be! How shall we who bdied to sin still live in it? 3 Or do you not know that all of us who have been abaptized into bChrist Jesus have been baptized into His death? 4 Therefore we have been aburied with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was braised from the dead through the cglory of the Father, so we too might walk in dnewness of life. 5 For aif we have become Iunited with [Him] in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be II[in the likeness] of His resurrection, 6 knowing this, that our aold Iself was bcrucified with [Him], in order that our cbody of sin might be IIdone away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin; 7 for ahe who has died is Ifreed from sin.

8 ¶ Now aif we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, 9 knowing that Christ, having been araised from the dead, Iis never to die again; bdeath 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 adead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

12 ¶ Therefore do not let sin areign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, 13 and do not go on apresenting Ithe members of your body to sin [as] IIinstruments of unrighteousness; but bpresent yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members [as] IIinstruments of righteousness to God. 14 For asin shall not bbe master over you, for cyou are not under law but dunder grace.

15 ¶ What then? aShall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? bMay it never be! 16 Do you not aknow that when you present yourselves to someone [as] bslaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of csin Iresulting in death, or of obedience IIresulting in righteousness? 17 But athanks be to God that Ithough you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that bform of teaching to which you were committed, 18 and having been afreed from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. 19 aI am speaking in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just bas you presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness, Iresulting in [further] lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness, IIresulting in sanctification.

20 ¶ For awhen you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. 21 Therefore what Iabenefit were you then IIderiving IIIfrom the things of which you are now ashamed? For the outcome of those things is bdeath. 22 But now having been afreed from sin and benslaved to God, you Iderive your IIcbenefit, IIIresulting in sanctification, and dthe outcome, eternal life. 23 For the wages of asin is death, but the free gift of God is beternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

We may not live in sin,

1 ¶ What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?

[1] Ro 2:4; 3:5, 31; 5:20; 6:15; Ga 5:13; 1P 2:16; 2P 2:18; Jde 1:4.

for we are dead unto it,

2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

[2] Gn 39:9; Ps 119:104; Ro 3:1; 5:11; 6:5; 7:4; 2Co 5:14; Ga 2:19; 6:14; Col 3:3; 1P 1:14; 2:24; 4:1; 1Jn 3:9.

as appeareth by our baptism.

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. 8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: 9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. 10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. 11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Let not sin reign any more,

12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. 13 Neither yield ye your members [as] instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members [as] instruments of righteousness 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. 16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; 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 obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

because we have yielded ourselves to the service of righteousness,

18 Being then made free from sin, 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 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. 22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
