1 WHAT, then, shall we say, Let us remain in sin, that grace may abound?
2 Not so. For how shall they who are dead to sin live yet in it?
3 Or do you not know, that they who have been baptized into Jeshu Meshiha, into his death have been baptized?
4 For we are buried with him by baptism into death; that as Jeshu Meshiha arose from among the dead by the glory of his Father, so also we in a new life shall walk.
5 For if together we have been planted with him in the likeness of his death, so also in his resurrection shall we be.
6 For we know that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be abolished, that more we should not serve sin.
7 For he who is dead is set free from sin.
8 If then we are dead with the Meshiha, we believe that with him, with the Meshiha, we shall live:
9 for we know that the Meshiha rose from among the dead, and no more dieth, nor hath death dominion over him.
10 For he who died on account of sin died once, and he who liveth liveth unto Aloha;
11 so also reckon yourselves to be dead unto sin, and alive unto Aloha by our Lord Jeshu Meshiha.
12 Let not sin then reign in your dead body, as that you may obey the lusts of it:
13 nor prepare your members the instruments of iniquity unto sin, but prepare yourselves for Aloha, as men who from the dead have been made alive, and your members instruments to be for the righteousness of Aloha.
14 For sin shall not rule over you; for you are not under law, but under grace.
15 What, then, shall we sin, because we are not under law, but under grace? Not so.
16 Know you not, that to whomsoever you prepare yourselves to obey him unto service, of him you are the servants, of him whom you obey; whether of sin, or of the hearing of the ear of righteousness?
17 But praise to Aloha that you were the servants of sin, but have obeyed from the heart the form of doctrine to which you have been delivered.
18 And when you were made free from sin, you became obedient to righteousness.
19 As among men I speak, because of the infirmity of your flesh, that as you have prepared your members for the service of uncleanness and of iniquity, so also now prepare ye your members for the service of righteousness and of holiness.
20 For when you were the servants of sin, you were free from righteousness.
21 And what product had you then from that of which to-day you are ashamed? For the end of it is death.
22 And now made free from sin, and become servants to Aloha, you have holy fruits, of which the end is the life of eternity.
23 For the wages of sin is death; and the gift of Aloha the life of eternity by our Lord Jeshu Meshiha.
