12 1Do not let asin therefore reign in your mortal body so that you obey 2the body's blusts;
13 Neither apresent your bmembers as cweapons of unrighteousness to sin, but 1present yourselves to God as alive from the dead, and your members as 2weapons of righteousness to God.
14 For asin will not 1lord it over you, 2for you are 3not under the law but under bgrace.
15 What then? aShould we sin, because we are not under the law but under grace? Absolutely not!
16 Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves as slaves for obedience, his slaves you are whom you obey, whether of sin 1unto death or of obedience 1unto righteousness?
17 But thanks be to God that though you were aslaves of sin, you have obeyed from the heart the form of teaching into which you were delivered.
18 And having been 1afreed from sin, you were enslaved to righteousness.
19 I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves to uncleanness and lawlessness unto lawlessness, so now apresent your members as slaves to righteousness 1unto 2bsanctification.
20 For when you were aslaves of sin, you were free with regard to righteousness.
21 What fruit then did you have at that time? Things of which you are now ashamed, for the end of those things is death.
22 But now, having been afreed from sin and enslaved to God, you have your fruit unto 1bsanctification, and the end, ceternal 2life.
23 For the 1wages of sin is 2adeath, but the gift of God is 3beternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
