BibleNew TestamentRomans
RSV

12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal bodies, to make you obey their passions.
. . . 
16 Do you not know that if you yield yourselves to any one as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness?
. . . 
23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.



Mentioned along with Romans 5:12, 1 Corinthians 15:21-22,53-56, 2 Corinthians 4:11-12, and Ephesians 2:1 in The Fourth Conversation contrasting "death" meaning mortality as opposed to "the death" that is a consequence of sin.
