THE EPISTLE OF PAUL
C. The Result
1 Therefore having been ajustified out of faith, we have bpeace 1toward God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
2 Through whom also we have obtained access by 1faith into this 2agrace in which we 3stand and 4boast because of the 5bhope of the cglory of God.
3 And not only so, but we also boast in our 1tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces 2endurance;
4 And endurance, 1approvedness; and approvedness, ahope;
5 And hope does not put us to shame, because the 1alove of God has been bpoured out in our chearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
6 For while we were yet 1weak, in due time Christ adied for the ungodly.
7 For scarcely for a righteous man will anyone die, though perhaps for the good man someone would even dare to die.
8 But God commends His own alove to us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ bdied for us.
9 Much more then, having now been justified in His ablood, we will be saved through Him from the bwrath.
10 For if we, being enemies, were 1areconciled to God through the death of His Son, 2much more we will be 3saved 4in His 5blife, having been reconciled,
11 And not only so, but also 1boasting in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the areconciliation.
A. The Gift in Christ Surpassing the Heritage in Adam --
Two Men, Two Acts, and Two Results
with Four Reigning Things
12 Therefore just as through 1aone man 2bsin entered into the 3world, and cthrough sin, 4death; and thus 4ddeath passed on to all men because all have sinned --
13 For until the law sin was in the world, but sin is not 1charged to one's account when there is no alaw.
14 But 1adeath reigned from 2Adam until Moses, even over those who had not sinned after the likeness of Adam's 3transgression, bwho is a 4type of Him who was to come.
15 But it is not that as the offense was, so also the gracious gift is; for if by the offense of the aone the many died, much more the grace of God and the free gift in grace of the one 1bman Jesus Christ have 2abounded to the many.
16 And it is not that as through one who sinned, so also the free 1gift is; for the judgment was out of one offense unto condemnation, but the gracious gift is out of many offenses unto ajustification.
17 For if by the offense of the one death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the 1abundance of grace and of the gift of 2righteousness will 3reign in 4life through the One, Jesus Christ.
18 So then as it was through one offense unto condemnation to all men, so also it was through one 1righteous act unto justification of 2life to all men.
19 For just as through the disobedience of one man the many were 1constituted sinners, so also through the 2obedience of the One the many will be 1constituted righteous.
20 And the alaw entered in alongside that the offense might 1abound; but where sin 1abounded, grace has super-abounded,
21 In order that just as 1asin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through 2righteousness unto beternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
