Romans 6:6-7

Context
6:6 We know that 1  our old man was crucified with him so that the body of sin would no longer dominate us, 2  so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. 6:7 (For someone who has died has been freed from sin.) 3 

1 tn Grk “knowing this, that.” Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation.

2 tn Grk “may be rendered ineffective, inoperative,” or possibly “may be destroyed.” The term καταργέω (katargew) has various nuances. In Rom 7:2 the wife whose husband has died is freed from the law (i.e., the law of marriage no longer has any power over her, in spite of what she may feel). A similar point seems to be made here (note v. 7).

3 sn Verse 7 forms something of a parenthetical comment in Paul’s argument.
