Romans 5

Therefore, being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom we also have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. And not only this, but we also rejoice in tribulations: knowing that tribulation works perseverance; And perseverance, character; and character, hope: And hope does not disappoint; because the love of God has been poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. For when we were still without strength, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man: though perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God shows his love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Having been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from the wrath of God through him. 10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, how much more, having being reconciled, shall we shall be saved by his life. 11 And not only this, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received reconciliation. 12 Therefore, since through one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; so death spread to all men, for all have sinned: 13 For though sin was in the world before the law: sin is not taken into account when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned in the same way as Adam, who is the pattern of him who was to come. 15 But the free gift is not like the offence. For if through the offence of the one many died, how much more did the grace of God, and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to many. 16 And the effect of the gift is not like the effect of the one who sinned, judgment following one trespass and resulting in condemnation; but the free gift came following many offences and resulted in justification. 17 For if by one man's offence death reigned through that one; much more shall those who receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one, Jesus Christ. 18 Therefore, as the offence of one brought judgment upon all men, resulting in condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one came justification that brings life for all men. 19 For just as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. 20 The law entered, that offences might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more: 21 So that as sin has reigned in death, even so might grace reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
