Romans 5

Results of Justification

1 a  Therefore, having been justified by faith
Two early mss read let us have
c  we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
2through whom also we have d  obtained our introduction by faith into this grace e  in which we stand; and
Or let us exult
we exult in hope of the glory of God.
3 g  And not only this, but
Or let us also exult
we also i  exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about j  perseverance;
4and k  perseverance, l  proven character; and proven character, hope; 5and hope m  does not disappoint, because the love of God has been n  poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

6For while we were still o  helpless p  at the right time q  Christ died for the ungodly. 7For one will hardly die for a righteous man;
Lit for
though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die.
8But God s  demonstrates t  His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners u  Christ died for us. 9Much more then, having now been justified
Or in
w  by His blood, we shall be saved x  from the wrath of God through Him.
10For if while we were y  enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved
Or in
aa  by His life.
11 ab  And not only this,
Lit but also exulting
but we also exult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received ad  the reconciliation.

12Therefore, just as through ae  one man sin entered into the world, and af  death through sin, and ag  so death spread to all men, because all sinned 13for
Or until law
until the Law sin was in the world, but ai  sin is not imputed when there is no law.
14Nevertheless death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over those who had not sinned aj  in the likeness of the offense of Adam, who is a
Or foreshadowing
al  type of Him who was to come.

Lit not as the transgression, so also is the free gift
the free gift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of an  the one ao  the many died, much more did the grace of God and the gift by ap  the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abound to the many.
16The gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned; for on the one hand aq  the judgment arose from one transgression
Lit to condemnation
resulting in condemnation, but on the other hand the free gift arose from many transgressions
Lit to an act of righteousness
resulting in justification.
17For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned at  through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will au  reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.

18So then as through av  one transgression
Lit to condemnation
there resulted condemnation to all men, even so through one ax  act of righteousness
Lit to justification
there resulted az  justification of life to all men.
19For as through the one man’s disobedience ba  the many bb  were made sinners, even so through bc  the obedience of the One bd  the many will be made righteous. 20
Or law
bf  The Law came in so that the transgression would increase; but where sin increased bg  grace abounded all the more,
21so that, as bh  sin reigned in death, even so bi  grace would reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
