Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentRomans 6:18
- Ye became servants of righteousness (edoulwthte thi dikaiosunhi).
- First aorist passive indicative of doulow, to enslave. "Ye were made slaves to righteousness." You have simply changed masters, no longer slaves of sin (set free from that tyrant), but ye are slaves of righteousness. There is no middle ground, no "no man's land" in this war.
