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.
12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death passed to all men, because all sinned-
12 Just as sin entered into the world by one man, and death by means of sin, so death was imposed upon all men, inasmuch as they all have sinned
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.
13 For even before the law, sin was in the world, but sin was not imputed while the law did not exist.
13 For until the law was given, though sin was in the world, it was not considered sin, because there was no law.
14 Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who did not sin according to the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come.
14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the likeness of Adam`s transgression, who is a figure of him that was to come.
15 But the free gift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of the one man many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to the many.
15 But not as the trespass, so also [is] the free gift. For if by the trespass of the one the many died, much more did the grace of God, and the gift by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, abound unto the many.
15 But the measure of the gift of God was not the measure of the fall. If therefore, because of the fall of one, many died, how much more will the grace and gift of God, because of one man, Jesus Christ, be increased ?
16 And the gift is not as by one having sinned. For the judgment [which came] from one [transgression resulted] in condemnation, but the free gift from many offenses [brought ] justification.
16 And the effect of the gift of God was greater than the effect of the offence of Adam: for while the judgment from one manÆs offence resulted in condemnation of many, the gift of God in forgiveness of sins resulted in righteousness to many more.
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 offences unto justification.
17 For if by the transgression of the one man death reigned through the one [man], much more those receiving the abundance of the grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ).
17 For though, by the one offense, death reigned through one, yet so much more so shall those who receive an abundance of grace, both of the gift and of justice, reign in life through the one Jesus Christ.
17 For if by one manÆs offence, death reigned, how much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.
18 So then, as through one [man's] transgression [judgment came] to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one [Man's] righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life.
18 Therefore, just as through the offense of one, all men fell under condemnation, so also through the justice of one, all men fall under justification unto life.
18 In like manner as by one manÆs offence, condemnation came upon all men, even so by the righteousness of one man, will the victory unto life be to all men.
19 For through the disobedience of the one man the many were constituted sinners, so also through the obedience of the One many shall be constituted righteous.
19 For as by one manÆs disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one man, shall many be made righteous.
20 But [the] law came in alongside, so that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace superabounded,
20 The introduction of the law caused sin to increase, and when sin had increased, grace became abundant.
21 so that just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
