Romans 6:6

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.

Romans 6:12

Context

6:12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its desires,

Romans 6:16

Context
6:16 Do you not know that if you present yourselves 3  as obedient slaves, 4  you are slaves of the one you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or obedience resulting in righteousness? 5 

Romans 6:19-20

Context
6:19 (I am speaking in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh.) 6  For just as you once presented your members as slaves to impurity and lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness leading to sanctification. 6:20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free with regard to righteousness.

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 tn Grk “to whom you present yourselves.”

4 tn Grk “as slaves for obedience.” See the note on the word “slave” in 1:1.

5 tn Grk “either of sin unto death, or obedience unto righteousness.”

6 tn Or “because of your natural limitations” (NRSV).

sn Verse 19 forms something of a parenthetical comment in Paul’s argument.
