What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
Elohim forbid. We who died to sin, how shall we any longer live therein?
Or are ye ignorant that all we who were immersed into Mashiyach Yahshua were immersed into his death?
We were buried therefore with him through immersion unto death: that like as Mashiyach was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we also might walk in newness of life.
For if we have become united with him in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection;
knowing this, that our old man was impaled with him, that the body of sin might be done away, that so we should no longer be in bondage to sin;
for he that hath died is justified from sin.
But if we died with Mashiyach, we believe that we shall also live with him;
knowing that Mashiyach being raised from the dead dieth no more; death no more hath dominion over him.
For the death that he died, he died unto sin once: but the life that he liveth, he liveth unto Elohim.
Even so reckon ye also yourselves to be dead unto sin, but alive unto Elohim in Mashiyach Yahshua.
Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey the lusts thereof:
neither present your members unto sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves unto Elohim, as alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto Elohim.
For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under law, but under grace.
What then? shall we sin, because we are not under law, but under grace? Elohim forbid.
Know ye not, that to whom ye present yourselves as servants unto obedience, his servants ye are whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
But thanks be to Elohim, that, whereas ye were servants of sin, ye became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching whereunto ye were delivered;
and being made free from sin, ye became servants of righteousness.
I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye presented your members as servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity, even so now present your members as servants to righteousness unto sanctification.
For when ye were servants of sin, ye were free in regard of righteousness.
What fruit then had ye at that time in the things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.
But now being made free from sin and become servants to Elohim, ye have your fruit unto sanctification, and the end eternal life.
For the wages of sin is death; but the free gift of Elohim is eternal life in Mashiyach Yahshua our Master.
