1 Justified therefore out of faith, let us have peace with :God through our :Lord Jesus Christ; 2 through whom also we have had the access by faith into this :grace wherein we stand; and let us rejoice in hope of the glory of :God. 3 And not only so, but let us also rejoice in :tribulations: knowing that :tribulation worketh patience; 4 and patience, approvedness; and approvedness, hope: 5 and :hope putteth not to shame; because the love of :God hath been shed abroad in our :hearts through the Holy Spirit :given us: 6 Seeing that, we being yet weak, in due season Christ died for us ungodly. 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: for peradventure for the good man some one would even dare to die. 8 But :God commendeth his own :love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much rather therefore, justified now by his :blood, shall we be saved from the wrath through him. 10 For if, being enemies, we were reconciled to :God through the death of his :Son, much rather, reconciled, shall we be saved by his :life; 11 and not only so, but also rejoicing in :God through our :Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.

12 Therefore, as through one man :sin entered into the world, and :death through :sin; and so :death passed unto all men, for that all sinned:—13 for until the law sin was in the world; but sin is not put to account when there is no law. 14 But :death reigned from Adam till Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a figure of the one to come. 15 But not as the trespass, thus also the free gift. For if by the trespass of the one the many died, much rather did the grace of :God, and the gift by grace which is of the one man, Jesus Christ, abound unto the many. 16 And not as through the one that sinned, is the gift: for the judgment—it came of one unto condemnation, but the free gift came of many trespasses unto †justification. 17 For if, by the trespass of the one, :death reigned through the one; much rather shall they that receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of :righteousness reign in life through the one, Jesus Christ. 18 So then as through one trespass, it is unto all men unto condemnation; even so through one †act of righteousness it is unto all men unto justification of life. 19 For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, thus also through the obedience of the one shall the many be made righteous. 20 And law came in besides, that the trespass abound; but where :sin abounded, :grace surpassed far more: 21 that, just as :sin reigned in :death, thus also might :grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life through Jesus Christ our :Lord.
