English Standard Version
5 For (A)if we have been united with him in (B)a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. 6 We know that (C)our old self[a] (D)was crucified with him in order that (E)the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. 7 For (F)one who has died (G)has been set free[b] from sin. 8 Now (H)if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. 9 We know that (I)Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; (J)death no longer has dominion over him. 10 For the death he died he died to sin, (K)once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. 11 So you also must consider yourselves (L)dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.
12 Let not (M)sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions. 13 (N)Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but (O)present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness. 14 For (P)sin (Q)will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.Read full chapter
New International Version
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.(A) 6 For we know that our old self(B) was crucified with him(C) so that the body ruled by sin(D) might be done away with,[a] that we should no longer be slaves to sin(E)— 7 because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.(F)
8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.(G) 9 For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead,(H) he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him.(I) 10 The death he died, he died to sin(J) once for all;(K) but the life he lives, he lives to God.
11 In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin(L) but alive to God in Christ Jesus. 12 Therefore do not let sin reign(M) in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. 13 Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness,(N) but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness.(O) 14 For sin shall no longer be your master,(P) because you are not under the law,(Q) but under grace.(R)
- Romans 6:6 Or be rendered powerless
New Living Translation
5 Since we have been united with him in his death, we will also be raised to life as he was. 6 We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives. We are no longer slaves to sin. 7 For when we died with Christ we were set free from the power of sin. 8 And since we died with Christ, we know we will also live with him. 9 We are sure of this because Christ was raised from the dead, and he will never die again. Death no longer has any power over him. 10 When he died, he died once to break the power of sin. But now that he lives, he lives for the glory of God. 11 So you also should consider yourselves to be dead to the power of sin and alive to God through Christ Jesus.
12 Do not let sin control the way you live;[a] do not give in to sinful desires. 13 Do not let any part of your body become an instrument of evil to serve sin. Instead, give yourselves completely to God, for you were dead, but now you have new life. So use your whole body as an instrument to do what is right for the glory of God. 14 Sin is no longer your master, for you no longer live under the requirements of the law. Instead, you live under the freedom of God’s grace.Read full chapter
