||Do you not know that those of us who have been baptized in Christ Jesus have been baptized into his death?
||For through baptism we have been buried with him into death, so that, in the manner that Christ rose from the dead, by the glory of the Father, so may we also walk in the newness of life.
||For if we have been planted together, in the likeness of his death, so shall we also be, in the likeness of his resurrection.
||For we know this: that our former selves have been crucified together with him, so that the body which is of sin may be destroyed, and moreover, so that we may no longer serve sin.
||For he who has died has been justified from sin.
||Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live together with Christ.
||For we know that Christ, in rising up from the dead, can no longer die: death no longer has dominion over him.
||For in as much as he died for sin, he died once. But in as much as he lives, he lives for God.
||And so, you should consider yourselves to be certainly dead to sin, and to be living for God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
