Romans 5:20–6:14

20 Moreover gthe law hentered, that the offence might abound. But iwhere sin abounded, jgrace did much more abound: 21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might kgrace reign through righteousness unto leternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

6 What shall we say then? aShall we continue in sin, that bgrace may abound? cGod forbid. How shall we, that dare dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that eso many of us as ||were baptized finto Jesus Christ ||were gbaptized into his death? Therefore we are hburied with him by baptism into death: that like as iChrist was raised up from the dead by kthe glory of the Father, even so lwe also should walk in newness of life. For mif we have been nplanted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that oour old man pis crucified with him, that qthe body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For rhe that is dead is sfreed from sin. Now tif we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: Knowing that uChrist being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. 10 For in that he died, whe died unto sin xonce: but in that he liveth, he yliveth unto God. 11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be zdead indeed unto sin, but alive aunto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. 12 Let not bsin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. 13 Neither cyield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but dyield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. 14 For bsin shall not have dominion over you: for eye are not under the law, but under grace.
