“Being then made free from sinne, yee became the seruants of righteousnesse.”
King James Version (KJV)
15. What then? shal we sinne, because wee are not vnder the Law, but vnder Grace? God forbid. 16. Know ye not, that to whom yee yeeld your selues seruants to obey, his seruants ye are to whom ye obey: whether of sinne vnto death, or of obedience vnto righteousnesse? 17. But God bee thanked, that yee were the seruants of sinne: but ye haue obeyed from the heart that fourme of doctrine, which was deliuered you. 18. Being then made free from sinne, yee became the seruants of righteousnesse. 19. I speake after the maner of men, because of the infirmitie of your flesh: for as yee haue yeelded your members seruants to vncleannesse and to iniquitie, vnto iniquitie: euen so now yeelde your members seruants to righteousnesse, vnto holinesse. 20. For when yee were the seruants of sinne ye were free from righteousnesse. 21. What fruit had yee then in those things, whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.
