Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Romans 6:17

_ _ But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of Sin — that is, that this is a state of things now past and gone.

_ _ but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you — rather, “whereunto ye were delivered” (Margin), or cast, as in a mould. The idea is, that the teaching to which they had heartily yielded themselves had stamped its own impress upon them.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 6:1-23.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 6:17

The form of doctrine into which ye have been delivered — Literally it is, The mould into which ye have been delivered; which, as it contains a beautiful allusion, conveys also a very instructive admonition; intimating that our minds, all pliant and ductile, should be conformed to the gospel precepts, as liquid metal, take the figure of the mould into which they are cast.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 6:17

(9) But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that (s) form of doctrine which was delivered you.

(9) By nature we are slaves to sin and free from righteousness, but by the grace of God we are made servants to righteousness, and therefore free from sin.

(s) This type of speech has a special meaning in it: for he means by this that the doctrine of the gospel is like a certain mould in which we are cast, to be shaped and fashioned like it.
