6 What shall we say, then?y Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase?z 2 By no means! We are those who have died to sin;a how can we live in it any longer? 3 Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptizedb into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into deathc in order that, just as Christ was raised from the deadd through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.e
5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his.f 6 For we know that our old selfg was crucified with himh so that the body ruled by sini might be done away with,a that we should no longer be slaves to sinj—7 because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.k
8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.l 9 For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead,m he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him.n 10 The death he died, he died to sino once for all;p but the life he lives, he lives to God.
