Romans 5

The Triumph of Faith

1 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have
Or let us have
peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in [the] hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only [that] , but we also rejoice in [our] sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not disappoint [us] , because God has poured out [His] love into our hearts through [the] Holy Spirit, whom He has given us.

Christ's Sacrifice for the Ungodly

6 For at just [the] right time, while we were still powerless, Christ died for [the] ungodly. 7 [It is] rare indeed [for] anyone to die for a righteous [man] , though for a good [man] someone {might} possibly dare to die. 8 But God proves His love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Therefore, [since] we have now been justified by His blood, how much more shall we be saved from wrath through Him! 10 For if, when we were enemies [of God] , we were reconciled to [Him] through the death of His Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through His life! 11 Not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.

"Death in Adam, Life in Christ"

12 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, so also death was passed on to all men, because all sinned. 13 For sin was in [the] world before [the] Law [was given] ; but sin is not taken into account when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless, death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over those who did not sin in the way that Adam transgressed. He is a pattern of the [One] to come. 15 But the gift [is] not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one [man] , how much more {did} God’s grace and the gift that came by [the] grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, abound to the many! 16 Again, the gift [is] not like [the result of] the one [man’s] sin: The judgment [that followed] one [sin] [brought] condemnation, but the gift [that followed] many trespasses [brought] justification. 17 For if, by the trespass of the one [man] , death reigned through [that] one [man] , how much more {will} those who receive an abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ! 18 Therefore, just as one trespass [brought] condemnation for all men, so also one act of righteousness [brought] justification [and] life for all men. 19 For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one [man] the many will be made righteous. 20 [The] Law was given so that the trespass would increase; but where sin increased, grace increased all the more, 21 so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness, to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
