What shall we saye then?
Shall we continue in sinne, that grace maye abound?
God forbyd.
Howe shall we that are dead to sinne, lyue any longer therin?
Knowe ye not, that all we whiche haue ben baptized into Iesus Christe, haue ben baptized into his death?
We are buryed then with him by baptisme into his death, that lykewyse as Christe was raysed vp from the dead by the glorie of the father: euen so, we also shoulde walke in newnesse of lyfe.
For if we be graft together by the likenesse of his death: euen so shall we be [partakers] of the resurrection:
Knowyng this, that our olde man is crucified with hym also, that the body of sinne might vtterly be destroyed, that hencefoorth we shoulde not serue sinne.
For he that is dead, is iustified from sinne.
And yf we be dead with Christe, we beleue that we shall also lyue with him:
Knowyng that Christe beyng raysed from the dead, dyeth no more, death hath no more power ouer hym.
For as touchyng that he dyed, he dyed concerning sinne once: And as touching that he lyueth, he lyueth vnto God.
Lykewyse, recken your selues to be dead to sinne, but alyue vnto God, thorowe Iesus Christe our Lorde.
Let not sinne raigne therefore in your mortall bodie, that ye shoulde thervnto obey by the lustes of it.
Neither geue ye your members as instrumentes of vnryghteousnesse vnto sinne: but geue your selues vnto God, as they that are alyue from the dead, and your members as instrumentes of ryghteousnesse vnto God.
For sinne shall not haue power ouer you, because ye are not vnder ye lawe, but vnder grace.
What then?
Shall we sinne, because we are not vnder the lawe, but vnder grace?
God forbyd.
Knowe ye not, how that to whom soeuer ye commit your selues as seruauntes to obey, his seruauntes ye are to whom ye obey: whether it be of sinne vnto death, or of obedience vnto ryghteousnesse?
But God be thanked, that ye were the seruautes of sinne: but ye haue obeyed with heart the fourme of doctrine, into the which ye were brought vnto.
Being then made free fro sinne, ye are become ye seruauntes of ryghteousnesse.
I speake after the maner of men, because of the infirmitie of your fleshe.
As ye haue geuen your members seruauntes to vncleannesse and iniquitie, vnto iniquitie: euen so nowe geue your members seruauntes to righteousnesse, vnto holynesse.
For when ye were the seruauntes of sinne, ye were free from ryghteousnesse.
What fruite had ye then in those thynges, wherof ye are nowe ashamed?
For the ende of those thynges, is death.
But nowe ye beyng made free from sinne, and made the seruauntes of God, haue your fruite vnto holynesse, and the ende euerlastyng lyfe.
For the rewarde of sinne is death: but the gyft of God is eternall lyfe, thorowe Iesus Christe our Lorde.
