“For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.”
King James Version (KJV)
6:20 When ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness - In all reason, therefore, ye ought now to be free from unrighteousness; to be as uniform and zealous in serving God as ye were in serving the devil.
Ro 6:20 Ye were free from righteousness. While servants of sin they did not serve righteousness at all.
