PAUL TO THE ROMANS
5:1 Being, then, justified by faith, we may be having
peace toward God, through our Lord, Jesus Christ, 2 through Whom we have
the access also, by faith, into this grace in which we stand, and we may be glorying in
expectation of the glory of God.
3 Yet not only so, but we may
be glorying also in afflictions, having perceived that affliction is producing endurance, 4
yet endurance testedness, yet testedness expectation. 5 Now expectation
is not mortifying, seeing that the love of God has been poured out in our hearts through
the holy spirit which is being given to us.
6 For Christ, while we are
still infirm, still in accord with the era, for the sake of the irreverent, died. 7
For hardly for the sake of a just man will anyone be dying: for, for the sake of a good
man, perhaps someone may even be daring to die, 8 yet God is commending
this love of His to us, seeing that, while we are still sinners, Christ died for our
sakes. 9 Much rather, then, being now justified in His blood, we shall be
saved from indignation, through Him.
10 For if, being enemies, we
were conciliated to God through the death of His Son, much rather, being conciliated, we
shall be saved in His life. 11 Yet not only so, but we are glorying also
in God, through our Lord, Jesus Christ, through Whom we now obtained the conciliation.
12 Therefore, even as through
one man sin entered into the world, and through sin death, and thus death passed through
into all mankind, on which all sinned 13 for until law sin was in
the world, yet sin is not being taken into account when there is no law; 14
nevertheless death reigns from Adam unto Moses, over those also who do not sin in the
likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of Him Who is about to be.
15 But not as the offense,
thus also the grace. For if, by the offense of the one, the many died, much rather the
grace of God and the gratuity in grace, which is of the One Man, Jesus Christ, to the many
16 And not as through one act of sinning is the
gratuity. For, indeed, the judgment is out of one into condemnation, yet the grace is out
of many offenses into a just award. 17 For if, by the offense of the one,
death reigns through the one, much rather, those obtaining the superabundance of grace and
the gratuity of righteousness shall be reigning in life through the One, Jesus Christ.
18 Consequently, then, as it
was through one offense for all mankind for condemnation, thus also it is through one just
award for all mankind for lifes justifying. 19 For even as, through
the disobedience of the one man, the many were constituted sinners, thus also, through the
obedience of the One, the many shall be constituted just.
20 Yet law came in by the way,
that the offense should be increasing. Yet where sin increases, grace superexceeds, 21
that, even as Sin reigns in death, thus Grace also should be reigning through
righteousness, for life eonian, through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
