12Wherefore , asbyonemansinenteredinto the world,anddeathbysin;andsodeathpasseduponallmen,forthataall have sinned :
(For until the lawsinwasin the world:butsinisnotimputed when there isnolaw.14NeverthelessdeathreignedfromAdamtoMoses,evenover them that hadnotsinnedafter the similitude of Adam'stransgression,whois the figure of him that was to come .
15Butnotas the offence,soalso is the free gift.Forif through the offence of onemany be dead , muchmore the grace of God,and the giftbygrace, which is by oneman,JesusChrist, hath aboundeduntomany.16Andnotas it was byone that sinned , so is the gift:forthejudgment was byonetocondemnation,but the free gift is ofmanyoffences untojustification.17Forif by one man'sboffencedeathreignedbyone;muchmore they which receiveabundance of graceand of the gift of righteousness shall reigninlifebyone,Jesus Christ.)
