1: Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God, through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3: And not only [so], but we glory in tribulations also; knowing that tribulation worketh patience; 4: And patience, experience; and experience, hope: 5: And hope maketh not ashamed, because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts, by the Holy Spirit which is given to us. 6: For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7: For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet perhaps for a good man some would even dare to die. 8: But God commendeth his love towards us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9: Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. 10: For if when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son; much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. 11: And not only [so], but we also joy in God, through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. 12: Wherefore as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned. 13: For until the law, sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14: Nevertheless, death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come. 15: But not as the offense, so also [is] the free gift. For if through the offense of one many are dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, [which is] by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded to many. 16: And not as [it was] by one that sinned, [so is] the gift. For the judgment [was] by one to condemnation, but the free gift [is] of many offenses to justification. 17: For if by one man's offense death reigned by one; much more they who receive abundance of grace, and of the gift of righteousness, shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. 18: Therefore, as by the offense of one, [judgment came] upon all men to condemnation, even so by the righteousness of one [the free gift came] upon all men to justification of life. 19: For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. 20: Moreover the law entered, that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: 21: That as sin hath reigned to death, even so might grace reign through righteousness to eternal life, by Jesus Christ our Lord.
