Romans 6:1-4 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

Therefore what shall we say? Shall we dwell in sin, that grace be plenteous?

God forbid [Far be it]. For how shall we that be dead to sin, live yet therein?

Whether, brethren, ye know not, that whichever we be baptized in Christ Jesus, we be baptized in his death?

For we be together buried with him by baptism into death; that as Christ arose from death [that as Christ rose from dead] by the glory of the Father, so [and] walk we in a newness of life.

Romans 6:1-4 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

Since we have been delivered from sin through Christ, we must fashion ourselves to live as the servants of God, not following our own desires. The different rewards of righteousness and sin.

What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, so that there may be an abundance of grace? God forbid. How can we, who are dead as regards sin, live any longer in it? Do you not remember that all we who are baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, are baptized to die with him? We are buried with him by baptism in order to die, so that in the same way as Christ was raised up from death by the glory of the Father, we also may walk in a new life.

Romans 6:1-4 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

1 He cometh to sanctification, without which, that no man putteth on Christ’s righteousness, he proveth 4 by an argument taken of Baptism, 12 and thereupon exhorteth to holiness of life, 16 briefly making mention of the Law transgressed.

What [a]shall we say then? Shall we continue still in [b]sin, that grace may abound? God forbid.

[c]How shall we, that are [d]dead to sin, live yet therein?

[e]Know ye not, that all we which have been baptized into [f]Jesus Christ, have been baptized into his death?

We are buried then with him by baptism into his death, that like as Christ was raised up from the dead [g]to the glory of the Father, so [h]we also should walk in newness of life.

Footnotes:

  1. Romans 6:1 He passeth now to another benefit of Christ, which is called sanctification or regeneration.
  2. Romans 6:1 In that corruption: for though the guiltiness of sin be not imputed to us, yet the corruption remaineth still in us: the which Sanctification that followeth Justification killeth by little and little.
  3. Romans 6:2 The benefits of Justification and Sanctification, are always joined together inseparably, and both of them proceed from Christ, by the grace of God: Now sanctification is the abolishing of sin, that is, of our natural corruption, into whose place succeedeth the cleanness and pureness of nature reformed.
  4. Romans 6:2 They are said of Paul to be dead to sin, which are in such sort made partakers of the virtue of Christ, that that natural corruption is dead in them, that is, the force of it is put out, and it bringeth not forth his bitter fruits: and on the other side, they are said to live to sin, which are in the flesh, that is, whom the spirit of God hath not delivered from the slavery of the corruption of nature.
  5. Romans 6:3 There are three parts of this Sanctification, to wit, the dead of the old man or sin, his burial, and the resurrection of the new man, descending into us from the virtue of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ, of which benefit our baptism is the sign and pledge.
  6. Romans 6:3 To the end that growing up in one with him, we should receive his strength to quench sin in us, and to make us new men.
  7. Romans 6:4 That Christ himself being discharged of his infirmity and weakness, might live in glory with God forever.
  8. Romans 6:4 And we which are his members rise for this end, that being made partakers of the selfsame virtue, we should begin to lead a new life, as though we were already in heaven.

Romans 6:1-4 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 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.
