5 Therefore abeing justified by faith, we have bpeace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2 By whom also cwe have access by faith into this grace dwherein we stand, and erejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 fAnd not only so, but gwe eglory in tribulations also: hknowing that tribulation worketh patience; 4 And patience, iexperience; and iexperience, hope: 5 And jhope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God kis shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. 6 For when we were yet without strength, * in due time lChrist died for the ungodly. 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. 8 But God mcommendeth nhis love toward us, in that, owhile we were yet sinners, lChrist died for us. 9 Much more then, being now justified oby his blood, pwe shall be saved from wrath through him. 10 For if, qwhen we were enemies, rwe were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by shis life. 11 fAnd not only so, but we also ejoy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the * atonement.
12 Wherefore, as tby one man sin entered into the world, and udeath by sin; and so death passed upon zall men, * vfor that all have sinned: 13 (For until the law sin was in the world: but wsin is not imputed when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of xAdam’s transgression, ywho is the figure of him that was to come. 15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one zmany be dead, much more athe grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto zbmany. 16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto cjustification. 17 For if * by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) 18 Therefore as * by dthe offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so * by dthe crighteousness of one the free gift came upon zeall men unto fjustification of life. 19 For as by one man’s disobedience zmany were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall bzmany be made righteous. 20 Moreover gthe law hentered, that the offence might abound. But iwhere sin abounded, jgrace did much more abound: 21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might kgrace reign through righteousness unto leternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.
