    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:13

    ni tampoco presentis vuestros miembros al pecado por instrumentos de iniquidad; antes presentaos a Dios como resucitados de los muertos, y vuestros miembros a Dios, por instrumentos de justicia.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Romans 6:13

    Verse 13. Neither yield ye your members] Do not yield to
    temptation. It is no sin to be tempted, the sin lies in yielding. While the sin exists only in Satan's solicitation, it is the devil's sin, not ours: when we yield, we make the devil's sin our own: then we ENTER INTO temptation. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Satan himself cannot force you to sin: till he wins over your will, he cannot bring you into subjection. You may be tempted; but yield not to the temptation.

    Yield yourselves unto God] Let God have your wills; keep them ever on his side; there they are safe, and there they will be active. Satan cannot force the will, and God will not. Indeed it would cease to be will were it forced by either: it is essential to its being that it be free.

    And your members as instruments, &c.] Let soul and body be employed in the service of your Maker; let him have your hearts; and with them, your heads, your hands, your feet. Think and devise what is pure; speak what is true, and to the use of edifying; work that which is just and good; and walk steadily in the way that leads to everlasting felicity. Be holy within and holy without.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 13. Neither yield ye your members , etc..] The apostle more fully explains what he means by obeying sin in the lusts thereof; a presenting, or making use of the members, as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: by their members he means the several powers and faculties of the soul, and so the Ethiopic version renders it, your souls; or the several parts of the body, or both; by yielding, or presenting of them, is designed the employment of them in the service of sin, as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin : that is, as means of performing unrighteous actions, in obedience to sin, or the corruption of nature with its lusts: the word translated instruments, signifies arms or weapons: so the ancients formerly reckoned weapons the members of soldiers; and here the apostle calls the members weapons, which he would not have the saints use in favour of sin, an enemy and a tyrant; for that would be unrighteous in itself, and injurious to God and themselves: says he, but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead : that is, present themselves soul and body to God, give up and devote themselves to him, and to his service, and yield a cheerful obedience to him; considering themselves as under great obligation so to do, inasmuch as they are freed from condemnation and death, by the righteousness of Christ; and quickened, when dead in trespasses and sins, by his Spirit and grace; and therefore should yield your members , their whole selves, as instruments , or weapons of righteousness unto God ; by fighting against sin, revenging all disobedience, and fulfilling obedience to the commands of God: the same is here meant, as is by putting on the armour of light ( Romans 13:12), and wearing and making use of the armour of righteousness, on the right hand and the left, ( 2 Corinthians 6:7).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 11-15 - The strongest motives against
    sin, and to enforce holiness, are her stated. Being made free from the reign of sin, alive unto God, an having the prospect of eternal life, it becomes believers to be greatl concerned to advance thereto. But, as unholy lusts are not quite roote out in this life, it must be the care of the Christian to resist their motions, earnestly striving, that, through Divine grace, they may no prevail in this mortal state. Let the thought that this state will soo be at an end, encourage the true Christian, as to the motions of lusts which so often perplex and distress him. Let us present all our power to God, as weapons or tools ready for the warfare, and work of righteousness, in his service. There is strength in the covenant of grace for us. Sin shall not have dominion. God's promises to us ar more powerful and effectual for mortifying sin, than our promises to God. Sin may struggle in a real believer, and create him a great dea of trouble, but it shall not have dominion; it may vex him, but it shall not rule over him. Shall any take occasion from this encouragin doctrine to allow themselves in the practice of any sin? Far be suc abominable thoughts, so contrary to the perfections of God, and the design of his gospel, so opposed to being under grace. What can be stronger motive against sin than the love of Christ? Shall we sin against so much goodness, and such love?

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    13. Yield (paristanete). Put at the
    service of; render. Rev., present. Compare Luke ii. 22; Acts ix. 41; Rom. xii. 1. See on Acts i. 3. Members (melh). Physical; though some include mental faculties.

    Compare Col. iii. 5, where members is expounded by fornication, uncleanness, etc., the physical being a symbol of the moral, of which it is the instrument.

    Instruments (opla). The word is used from the earliest times of tools or instruments generally. In Homer of a ship's tackle, smith's tools, implements of war, and in the last sense more especially in later Greek. In the New Testament distinctly of instruments of war (John xviii. 3; 2 Corinthians vi. 7; x. 4). Here probably with the same meaning, the conception being that of sin and righteousness as respectively rulers of opposing sovereignties (compare reign, ver. 12, and have dominion, ver. 14), and enlisting men in their armies. Hence the exhortation is, do not offer your members as weapons with which the rule of unrighteousness may be maintained, but offer them to God in the service of righteousness. Of unrighteousness (adikiav). See on 2 Pet. ii. 13.

    Yield (parasthsate). Rev., present. The same word as before, but in a different tense. The present tense, be presenting, denotes the daily habit, the giving of the hand, the tongue, etc., to the service of sin as temptation appeals to each. Here the aorist, as in xii. 1, denotes an act of self-devotion once for all.

    As those that are alive (wv zwntav). The best texts read wJsei as if alive. This brings out more clearly the figurative character of the exhortation. 37 From the dead (ek nekrwn). Note the preposition out of. See on Luke xvi. 31.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    6:13 {Neither present} (mede paristanete). Present active imperative in prohibition of paristan", late form of paristemi, to place beside. Stop presenting your members or do not have the habit of doing so, "do not go on putting your members to Sin as weapons of unrighteousness." {Instruments} (hopla). Old word for tools of any kind for shop or war (#Joh 18:3; 2Co 6:7; 10:4; Ro 13:12). Possibly here figure of two armies arrayed against each other (#Ga 5:16-24), and see hopla dikaiosuns below. The two sets of hopla clash. {But present yourselves unto God} (alla parastsate heautous twi qewi). First aorist active imperative of paristemi, same verb, but different tense, do it now and completely. Our "members" (mel) should be at the call of God "as alive from the dead."
