Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Romans 6:13

_ _ Neither yield ye your members instruments of unrighteousness unto Sin, but yield yourselves — this is the great surrender.

_ _ unto God as those that are alive from the dead, and — as the fruit of this.

_ _ your members — till now prostituted to sin.

_ _ instruments of righteousness unto God — But what if indwelling sin should prove too strong for us? The reply is: But it will not.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 6:1-23.
