Romans 6 (asv)
6:1What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 6:2God forbid. We who died to sin, how shall we any longer live therein? 6:3Or are ye ignorant that all we who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 6:4We were buried therefore with him through baptism unto death: that like as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we also might walk in newness of life.6:5For if we have become united with him in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection; 6:6knowing this, that our old man was crucified with him, that the body of sin might be done away, that so we should no longer be in bondage to sin; 6:7for he that hath died is justified from sin. 6:8But if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him; 6:9knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death no more hath dominion over him. 6:10For the death that he died, he died unto sin once: but the life that he liveth, he liveth unto God. 6:11Even so reckon ye also yourselves to be dead unto sin, but alive unto God in Christ Jesus. 6:12Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey the lusts thereof: 6:13neither present your members unto sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves unto God, as alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. 6:14For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under law, but under grace. 6:15What then? shall we sin, because we are not under law, but under grace? God forbid. 6:16Know ye not, that to whom ye present yourselves as servants unto obedience, his servants ye are whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? 6:17But thanks be to God, that, whereas ye were servants of sin, ye became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching whereunto ye were delivered; 6:18and being made free from sin, ye became servants of righteousness. 6:19I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye presented your members as servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity, even so now present your members as servants to righteousness unto sanctification. 6:20For when ye were servants of sin, ye were free in regard of righteousness. 6:21What fruit then had ye at that time in the things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. 6:22But now being made free from sin and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto sanctification, and the end eternal life. 6:23For the wages of sin is death; but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
