Romans 5

Results of Justification

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,
through 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.
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;
and k perseverance, l proven character; and proven character, hope; and 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.

For while we were still o helpless p at the right time q Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man;
Lit for
though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die.
But God s demonstrates t His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners u Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified
Or in
w by His blood, we shall be saved x from the wrath of God through Him.
10 For 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.

12 Therefore, 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 13 for
Or until law
until the Law sin was in the world, but ai sin is not imputed when there is no law.
14 Nevertheless 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.

15 But
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.
16 The 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.
17 For 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.

18 So 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.
19 For 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,
21 so that, as bh sin reigned in death, even so bi grace would reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
