11Therefore, having been justified by faith, a2we havepeace with Godthrough our LordJesusChrist,
2throughwhomalso we have 3obtained our introduction by faith into thisgrace4in which we stand; and bwe exult in hope of the glory of God.
35And not only this, but cwe also6exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulationbringsabout7perseverance;
and 8perseverance, 9provencharacter; and provencharacter, hope;
and hope10does not disappoint, because the love of God has been 11poured out within our heartsthrough the HolySpirit who was given to us.
For while we were still12helpless, 13at the righttime14Christdied for the ungodly.
For one will hardlydie for a righteousman; dthoughperhaps for the goodman someone would dareeven to die.
But God15demonstrates16His ownlovetoward us, in that while we were yetsinners, 17Christdied for us.
9Muchmorethen, having now been justifiede18by His blood, we shall be saved19from the wrath of God through Him.
For if while we were 20enemies we were reconciled to Godthrough the death of His Son, muchmore, having been reconciled, we shall be savedf21by His life.
1122And not only this, gbut we alsoexult in Godthrough our LordJesusChrist, throughwhom we have nowreceived23the reconciliation.
12Therefore , just as through24onemansinentered into the world, and 25deaththroughsin, and 26sodeathspread to allmen, becauseallsinned -
for huntil the Lawsin was in the world, but 27sin is not imputed when there is nolaw.
14Neverthelessdeathreigned from AdamuntilMoses, evenoverthose who had not sinned28in the likeness of the offense of Adam, who is a i29type of Him who was to come.
But jthe freegift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of 30the one31the manydied, muchmore did the grace of God and the gift by 32the grace of the oneMan, JesusChrist, abound to the many.
The gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned; for on the onehand33the judgment arose from one transgression kresulting in condemnation, but on the otherhand the freegift arose from manytransgressionslresulting in justification.
For if by the transgression of the one, deathreigned34through the one, muchmorethose who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will 35reign in lifethrough the One, JesusChrist.
18Sothen as through36onetransgressionmthere resultedcondemnation to allmen, evensothroughone37act of righteousnessnthere resulted38justification of life to allmen.
For as through the oneman'sdisobedience39the many40were madesinners, evensothrough41the obedience of the One42the many will be maderighteous.
20o43The Lawcame in so that the transgression would increase; but wheresinincreased, 44graceaboundedall the more,
21so that, as 45sinreigned in death, evenso46grace would reignthroughrighteousness to eternallifethroughJesusChrist our Lord.
