Romans 5 ©

1Being justified by faith, we have peace with God: 2we glory in our hope; 3and in present afflictions; 6from the past experience of God's love, looking with more assurance for final salvation: 11we glory in God also, to whom we are reconciled by Christ. 12As sin and death came upon all men by Adam, so the grace of God, which justifieth unto life, cometh more abundantly unto all mankind through Christ. 20Under the law sin abounded unto death; but grace hath much more abounded unto life.

1

THEREFORE abeing justified by faith, bwe have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

2

cBy whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

3

And not only so, but we dglory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

4

eAnd patience, fexperience; and experience, hope:

f 2Co. 8.2. Phi. 2.22. Ja. 1.3,12. (Gr.)
5

gAnd hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is hshed abroad in our hearts by the Holy *Ghost which is given unto us.

h Ep. 1.13,14. TIt. 3.6. 2Co. 1.22. ch. 8.15.
6

For iwhen we were yet without strength, 1in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

7

For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: jyet *peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.

8

But kGod commendeth his love toward us, in that, lwhile we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

l ch. 3.25.
9

mMuch more then, being now justified by his blood, nwe shall be saved from wrath through him.

n ch. 1.18.
10

For if, when we were enemies, owe were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we pshall be saved by qhis life.

11

And not only so, rbut we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the 2atonement.

12

Wherefore, sas by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, 3for that all have sinned:

13

(For tuntil the law sin was in the world: ubut sin is not imputed when there is no law.

14

Nevertheless vdeath reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, wwho is the figure of him that was to come.

15

But not as the offence, xso also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.

x Jn. 3.16. 1Jn. 4.9,10. Jn. 1.16. Ep. 1.6,7; 2.4-9. Is. 53.11. Mat. 20.28; 26.28. 1Jn. 2.2. v.19-21.
16

yAnd 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 offences unto justification.

17

For if 4by one man's offence zdeath reigned by one; amuch more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)

z v.12,14,21.
18

Therefore as 5by the offence of one judgment bcame upon all men to condemnation; even so 6by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto cjustification of life.

c ch. 4.25.
19

For das by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, eso by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

d v.12,14,15,18. 1Co. 15.21,22.
20

Moreover fthe law entered, that the offence might abound. But gwhere sin abounded, grace did much more abound:

21

That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might hgrace reign through righteousness unto ieternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

i ch. 2.7.
