Therefore having been justified on the principle of faith, we have peace towards God through our Lord Jesus Christ;
by whom we have also access by faith into this favour in which we stand, and we boast in hope of the glory of God.
And not only [that], but we also boast in tribulations, knowing that tribulation works endurance;
and endurance, experience; and experience, hope;
and hope does not make ashamed, because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by [the] Holy Spirit which has been given to us:
for we being still without strength, in [the] due time Christ has died for [the] ungodly.
For scarcely for [the] just [man] will one die, for perhaps for [the] good [man] some one might also dare to die;
but God commends *his* love to us, in that, we being still sinners, Christ has died for us.
Much rather therefore, having been now justified in [the power of] his blood, we shall be saved by him from wrath.
For if, being enemies, we have been reconciled to God through the death of his Son, much rather, having been reconciled, we shall be saved in [the power of] his life.
And not only [that], but [we are] making our boast in God, through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom now we have received the reconciliation.
