Darby's Synopsis of the New Testament

Romans 6

Introduction

1:1 called (f-7) 'A called apostle,' i.e. an apostle by (divine) calling. Cf. ver. 7 'called saints,' and see note there.

Verse 5

6:5 with (c-7) Lit. 'grown up with' and so thoroughly one. cf. Luke 8:7 . It is not 'planted together with.'

Verse 6

6:6 knowing (d-1) In ver. 6 it is objective knowledge, ginosko . In vers. 9 and 16 it is conscious knowledge, oida . See Note to 1 Corinthians 8:1 . serve (e-25) i.e. serve as bondmen.

Verse 7

6:7 justified (f-7) 'Free' is ambiguous. It is justified, cleared, discharged. From sin, note, not sins.

Verse 9

6:9 knowing (d-1) In ver. 6 it is objective knowledge, ginosko . In vers. 9 and 16 it is conscious knowledge, oida . See Note to 1 Corinthians 8:1 .

Verse 10

6:10 died, (g-6) died (g-9) Or 'he died,' aorist. It is the fact. see Note, ch. 5.6.

Verse 13

6:13 yield (h-2) There is a distinction between the present tense, which has a continuous present sense, and the aorist, which gives the act in itself. 'Neither yield your members,' ver. 13 (present tense), means that it is at no time to be done. 'Yield yourselves to God' and 'yield your members,' ver. 15 (aorists), mean let it have been done, as a once accomplished act. dead, (i-20) Lit. 'as out of dead alive.' The order of the words gives a contrasted force. not merely that they came thence. But 'out of dead alive' is hardly English.

Verse 15

6:15 sin (k-5) Or 'are we to sin?' the subjunctive aorist.

Verse 16

6:16 Know (d-1) In ver. 6 it is objective knowledge, ginosko . In vers. 9 and 16 it is conscious knowledge, oida . See Note to 1 Corinthians 8:1 .

Verse 19

6:19 bondage (a-21) The word translated 'in bondage' is an adjective, expressing the state of slavery, 'enslaved.' yield (b-31) See Note h, ver. 13. holiness. (c-39) Hagiasmos . See Note i at ch. 1.4.

Verse 22

6:22 holiness, (c-20) Hagiasmos . See Note i at ch. 1.4.
