Romans 6:11

Context
6:11 So you too consider yourselves 1  dead to sin, but 2  alive to God in Christ Jesus.

Romans 6:22

Context
6:22 But now, freed 3  from sin and enslaved to God, you have your benefit 4  leading to sanctification, and the end is eternal life.

1 tc ‡ Some Alexandrian and Byzantine mss (Ì94vid א* B C 81 365 1506 1739 1881 pc) have the infinitive “to be” (εἶναι, einai) following “yourselves”. The infinitive is lacking from some mss of the Alexandrian and Western texttypes (Ì46vid A D*,c F G 33vid pc). The infinitive is found elsewhere in the majority of Byzantine mss, suggesting a scribal tendency toward clarification. The lack of infinitive best explains the rise of the other readings. The meaning of the passage is not significantly altered by inclusion or omission, but on internal grounds omission is more likely. NA27 includes the infinitive in brackets, indicating doubt as to its authenticity.

2 tn Greek emphasizes the contrast between these two clauses more than can be easily expressed in English.

3 tn The two aorist participles translated “freed” and “enslaved” are causal in force; their full force is something like “But now, since you have become freed from sin and since you have become enslaved to God….”

4 tn Grk “fruit.”
