1 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
2 through whom we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
2 For through him we also have access by faith to this grace, in which we stand firm, and to glory, in the hope of the glory of the sons of God.
3 And not only that, but we also rejoice in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces endurance;
4 and endurance, character; and character, hope.
4 and stedfastness, approvedness; and approvedness, hope
4 and patience leads to proving, yet truly proving leads to hope,
5 And hope does not put to shame, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
5 but hope is not unfounded, because the love of God is poured forth in our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
6 For while we were still weak, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
6 Yet why did Christ, while we were still infirm, at the proper time, suffer death for the impious?
6 But Christ at this time, because of our weaknesses, died for the sake of the wicked.
7 For scarcely on behalf of a righteous [man] will anyone die; yet perhaps for a good man someone might even dare to die.
7 Now someone might barely be willing to die for the sake of justice, for example, perhaps someone might dare to die for the sake of a good man.
7 Hardly would any man die for the sake of the wicked: but for the sake of the good, one might be willing to die.
8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
8 God has here manifested his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
9 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
9 Christ died for us. Therefore, having been justified now by his blood, all the more so shall we be saved from wrath through him.
10 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.
11 And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom now we received the reconciliation.
