9 For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him.
9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
9 We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him.
9 We know that when Jesus was raised from the dead it was a signal of the end of death-as-the-end. Never again will death have the last word.
9 knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him.
9 We are sure of this because Christ was raised from the dead, and he will never die again. Death no longer has any power over him.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Romans 6:9
Commentary on Romans 6:3-10
(Read Romans 6:3-10)
Baptism teaches the necessity of dying to sin, and being as it were buried from all ungodly and unholy pursuits, and of rising to walk with God in newness of life. Unholy professors may have had the outward sign of a death unto sin, and a new birth unto righteousness, but they never passed from the family of Satan to that of God. The corrupt nature, called the old man, because derived from our first father Adam, is crucified with Christ, in every true believer, by the grace derived from the cross. It is weakened and in a dying state, though it yet struggles for life, and even for victory. But the whole body of sin, whatever is not according to the holy law of God, must be done away, so that the believer may no more be the slave of sin, but live to God, and find happiness in his service.
