Romans 5

Therefore, because we are justified by faith, we shall have peace with God, through our Lord Jesus Messiah. By whom we are brought by faith into this grace, in which we stand and rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we also rejoice in afflictions; because we know that affliction perfecteth in us patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope: and hope maketh not ashamed because the love of God is diffused in our hearts, by the Holy Spirit who is given to us. And if at this time, on account of our weakness, Messiah died for the ungodly: (for rarely doth one die for the ungodly; though for the good, some one perhaps might venture to die :) God hath here manifested his love towards us. Because, if when we were sinners, Messiah died for us; how much more, shall we now be justified by his blood and be rescued from wrath by him? 10 For if when we were enemies, God was reconciled with us by the death of his Son; how much more shall we, in his reconciliation, lived by his life? 11 And not only so, but we also rejoice in God, by means of our Lord Jesus Messiah, through whom we have now received the reconciliation. 12 As by means of one man, sin entered into the world, and, by means of sin, death; and so death passed upon all the sons of men, inasmuch as they all have sinned: 13 For until the law, sin, although it was in the world, was not accounted sin, because there was no law. 14 Yet death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over those who had not sinned after the likeness of the transgression of the command by Adam, who was the type of him that was to come. 15 But not, as the fault, so also the free gift. For if, on account of the fault of one, many died; how much more, will the grace of God and his free gift, on account of one man, Jesus Messiah, abound unto many? 16 And not, as the offence of one, so also the free gift. For the judgment, which was of one offence, was unto condemnation; but the free gift was, of many sins, unto righteousness. 17 For if, on account of the offence of one, death reigned; still more, they who receive the abundance of the grace, and the free gift, and the righteousness, will reign in life, by means of one, Jesus Messiah. 18 Therefore, as on account of the offence of one, condemnation was to all men; so on account of the righteousness of one, will the victory unto life be to all men. 19 For as; on account of the disobedience of one man, many became sinners; so also, on account of the obedience of one, many become righteous. 20 And the entrance given to the law, was that sin might increase: and where sin increased, there grace abounded. 21 So that, as sin had reigned in death, so grace might reign in righteousness unto life eternal, by means of our Lord Jesus Messiah.
