5 Therefore, ahaving been justified by faith, 1we have bpeace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 cthrough whom also we have access by faith into this grace din which we stand, and erejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only that, but fwe also glory in tribulations, gknowing that tribulation produces 2perseverance; 4 hand perseverance, 3character; and character, hope. 5 iNow hope does not disappoint, jbecause the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
6 For when we were still without strength, 4in due time kChrist died for the ungodly. 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. 8 But lGod demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, having now been justified mby His blood, we shall be saved nfrom wrath through Him. 10 For oif when we were enemies pwe were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved qby His life. 11 And not only that, but we also rrejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.
