Therefore we have been (A)buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was (B)raised from the dead through the (C)glory of the Father, so we too might walk in (D)newness of life. For (E)if we have become [a]united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be [b]in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our (F)old [c]self was (G)crucified with Him, in order that our (H)body of sin might be [d]done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin; for (I)he who has died is [e]freed from sin.

Now (J)if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing that Christ, having been (K)raised from the dead, [f]is never to die again; (L)death no longer is master over Him. 10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. 11 Even so consider yourselves to be (M)dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

12 Therefore do not let sin (N)reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, 13 and do not go on (O)presenting [g]the members of your body to sin as [h]instruments of unrighteousness; but (P)present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as [i]instruments of righteousness to God. 14 For (Q)sin shall not (R)be master over you, for (S)you are not under law but (T)under grace.
