We may not live in sin,
Romans 6:1 What shall we saye then? Shal we continue in synne, that there maye be aboundaunce of grace?
for we are dead unto it,
Romans 6:2 God forbide. How shal we that are deade as touchynge synne, lyue any lenger therin?
as appeareth by our baptism.
Romans 6:3 Remembre ye not þt al we which are baptised in the name of Iesus Christe, are baptised to dye wyth hym? Romans 6:4 We are buried wyth hym by baptisme, for to dye that lykewyse as Christe was raysed vp from death by the glorye of the father: euen so we also shoulde walke in a newe lyfe. Romans 6:5 For yf we be grafted in deathe lyke vnto hym: euen so muste we be in the resurrection. Romans 6:6 Thys we muste remember, that oure olde man is crucified wyth hym also, that þe bodye of synne myght vtterlye be destroyed, that hence forthe we should not be seruauntes of synne. Romans 6:7 For he that is dead is iustifyed from synne. Romans 6:8 Wherefore yf we be deade wyth Christe, we beleue that we shall lyue with hym: Romans 6:9 remembrynge that Christe ones raysed from death, dieth no more, death hath nomore power ouer hym. Romans 6:10 For as touchynge that he dyed, he died concernynge synne, ones. And as touchinge that he liueth, he liueth vnto God. Romans 6:11 Lyke wyse ymagyne ye also, that ye are dead concernynge synne: but are a lyue vnto God thorowe Iesus Christe oure Lorde.
Let not sin reign any more,
Romans 6:12 Lette not synne reygne therefore in youre mortall bodyes, þt ye shoulde thereunto obey in the lustes of yt. Romans 6:13 Neyther geue ye youre members as instrumentes of vnrightuousnes vnto sinne: but geue yourselues vnto god, as they that are aliue from death. And geue your membres as instrumentes of ryghtuousnes vnto God, Romans 6:14 Let not synne haue power ouer you. For ye are not vnder the lawe, but vnder grace. Romans 6:15 What then? Shall we synne, because we are not vnder þe lawe: but vnder grace? God forbyd. Romans 6:16 Remember ye not howe that to whomsoeuer ye commit your selues as seruauntes to obey, hys seruauntes ye are to whom ye obey: whether it be of synne vnto death, or of obedience vnto rightuousnes? Romans 6:17 God be thanked þt though ye were ones the seruauntes of synne ye haue yet obeyed with herte vnto the forme of doctrine wherunto ye were delyuered.
because we have yielded ourselves to the service of righteousness,
Romans 6:18 Ye are then made fre from sinne, & are become the seruauntes of rightuousnes. Romans 6:19 I will speake grossely because of the infirmitie of youre fleshe. As ye haue geuen your members seruauntes to vnclennes and to iniquitie: from iniquitie vnto iniquitie: euen so now geue your membres seruauntes vnto rightuousnes, that ye may be sanctifyed. Romans 6:20 For when ye were þe seruauntes of synne, ye were not vnder rightuousnes. Romans 6:21 What fruit had ye then in those thynges, where of ye are nowe ashamed. For the ende of those thynges is deathe. Romans 6:22 But nowe are ye deliuered from synne, and made the seruauntes of God, and haue youre fruyte that ye shoulde be sanctified, & the ende euerlastynge lyfe.
and for that death is the wages of sin.
Romans 6:23 For the rewarde of sinne is death: but eternal lyfe is the gyfte of God, thorow Iesus Christ oure Lorde.
