    Clarke's Commentary on Romans 6:9

    Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more - So we, believing in Christ Jesus, and having a death unto sin, and a life unto righteousness, should sin no more. If we be risen indeed with Christ, we should seek the things above, and set our affections on things above, and not on the earth. The man who walks in humble, loving obedience, to an indwelling Christ, sin has no more dominion over his soul than death has over the immortal and glorified body of his Redeemer.

    Barnes' Notes on Romans 6:9

    Knowing - As we all know. This is assumed as an undoubted article of belief.

    Dieth no more - Will never die again. He will have occasion to make no other atonement for sin; for what he has made is sufficient for all. He is beyond the dominion of death, and will live forever, Revelation 1:18, "I am he that liveth and was dead, and behold I am alive forevermore." This is not only a consolation to the Christian, but it is an argument why he should be holy.

    No more dominion - No rule; no lordship; no power. He is free from its influence; and the king of terrors cannot reach his throne; compare Hebrews 9:25-28; Hebrews 10:12.
