5 1Being therefore justified by faith, we have peace with God through our
Lord Jesus Christ;
2through whom also we have had our access by faith
into this grace wherein we stand; and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
3And not only so, but we also rejoice in our tribulations: knowing that
tribulation worketh stedfastness;
4and stedfastness, approvedness; and
5and hope putteth not to shame; because the love of
God hath been shed abroad in our hearts through the Holy Spirit which was
given unto us.
6For while we were yet weak, in due season Christ died for
7For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: for
peradventure for the good man some one would even dare to die.
commendeth his own love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ
died for us.
9Much more then, being now justified by his blood, shall we
be saved from the wrath of God through him.
10For if, while we
were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, much
more, being reconciled, shall we be saved by his life;
11and not only so,
but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we
have now received the reconciliation.
12Therefore, as through one man sin
entered into the world, and death through sin; and so death passed unto all
men, for that all sinned:--
13for until the law sin was in the world; but
sin is not imputed when there is no law.
14Nevertheless death reigned
from Adam until Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the likeness
of Adam's transgression, who is a figure of him that was to come.
not as the trespass, so also is the free gift. For if by the trespass
of the one the many died, much more did the grace of God, and the gift by the
grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, abound unto the many.
16And not as
through one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment
came of one unto condemnation, but the free gift came of many
trespasses unto justification.
17For if, by the trespass of the one,
death reigned through the one; much more shall they that receive the
abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the
one, even Jesus Christ.
18So then as through one trespass the
judgment came unto all men to condemnation; even so through one act of
righteousness the free gift came unto all men to justification of
19For as through the one man's disobedience the many were made
sinners, even so through the obedience of the one shall the many be made
20And the law came in besides, that the trespass might abound;
but where sin abounded, grace did abound more exceedingly:
21that, as sin
reigned in death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto
eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
