Romans 6

1  What therefore will we say? Might we continue to the sin, in order that the grace might abound?

2  May it not come to be. We which certain ones died to the sin, how still will we live in it?

3  Or are you all being ignorant that, as many as us were merged into Christ Jesus, into His particular death were merged?

4  Therefore we are buried together with Him through the merger into the death, in order that just as Christ was raised out from dead ones through the opinion the Father, so also we might walk around in newness of life.

5  For since planted together we have come to be and remain by the likeness of His particular death, then but also the resurrection we will be;

6  While we are knowing this, that our old particular man was crucified with Him, in order that the body of the sin might be idled-down, of the result for us no longer to be slaving to the sin;

7   For the one who died has been and remains justified away from the sin.

8  And since we died with Christ, then we are believing that also we will live together with Him,

9   We have been knowing that Christ after He was raised out from dead ones no longer is dying, His death is no longer lording over Him.

10   For which He died, to the sin He died once upon all; but which He is living, He is living to the God.

11   So also you all reckon you yourselves on the one hand [to be] dead to the sin; but on the other hand, ones who are living to the God in Christ Jesus.

12   Do not therefore be reigning the sin in your particular mortal body into the result to be obeying to its particular lust,

13   neither be standing alongside your particular members as tools of injustice to the sin; but, stand alongside yourselves to the God as ones living out from dead ones, and your particular members to the God as tools of a state of justification.

14   For sin will not ruler over you all; for you all are not under law, but under grace.

15   What therefore? might we sin, because we all are not under law, but under grace? May it not come to be.

16   Do you all not know that to whom you all are standing yourselves alongside slaves into obedience, a slave you all are to whom you all are obeying, either of sin into death or of obedience into a state of justification?

17   But grace to the God because you all were slaves of the sin, but out from a heart you all obeyed into which you all were given alongside a type of teaching,

18   And after you all were set free away from the sin, you all were enslaved to the state of justification.

19   I am speaking with human terms on account of the weakness of your particular flesh. For just as you all stood alongside your particular members slaves to the uncleanness and to the state of lawlessness into the state of lawlessness, so now you all stand alongside your particular members slaves to the state of justification into sanctification.

20   For when you are were slaves of the sin, you all were free ones to the state of justification. 

21   What fruit therefore were you all having then? Upon which things you all are now being ashamed, for the end of those things is death.

22   But now, after you are were set free away from the sin and after you all were enslaved to the God, you all are having your particular fruit into sanctification, and the end life continuous.

23   For the wages of the sin is death, but the grace-gift of the God is life continuous in Christ Jesus our particular Lord.

(Changing word order is kept to a minimum.  Commas are added where I felt it was necessary to convey the meaning.  Words in italics are added for easier reading or implied.  The Greek article “the” is preserved and sometimes “particular” is used in place of “the.”)
