The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 Therefore having been justified on the principle of faith, we have peace towards God through our Lord Jesus Christ; 1 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
2 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. 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.
3 And not only [that], but we also boast in tribulations, knowing that tribulation works endurance; 3 Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;
4 and endurance, experience; and experience, hope; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope.
5 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: 5 And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
6 for we being still without strength, in [the] due time Christ has died for [the] ungodly. 6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.
7 For scarcely for [the] just [man] will one die, for perhaps for [the] good [man] some one might also dare to die; 7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die.
8 but God commends *his* love to us, in that, we being still sinners, Christ has died for us. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
9 Much rather therefore, having been now justified in [the power of] his blood, we shall be saved by him from wrath. 9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him!
10 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. 10 For if, when we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!
11 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. 11 Not only is this so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.
12 For this [cause], even as by one man sin entered into the world, and by sin death; and thus death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: 12 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned--
13 (for until law sin was in [the] world; but sin is not put to account when there is no law; 13 for before the law was given, sin was in the world. But sin is not taken into account when there is no law.
14 but death reigned from Adam until Moses, even upon those who had not sinned in the likeness of Adam's transgression, who is [the] figure of him to come. 14 Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam, who was a pattern of the one to come.
15 But [shall] not the act of favour [be] as the offence? For if by the offence of one the many have died, much rather has the grace of God, and the free gift in grace, which [is] by the one man Jesus Christ, abounded unto the many. 15 But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God's grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many!
16 And [shall] not as by one that has sinned [be] the gift? For the judgment [was] of one to condemnation, but the act of favour, of many offences unto justification. 16 Again, the gift of God is not like the result of the one man's sin: The judgment followed one sin and brought condemnation, but the gift followed many trespasses and brought justification.
17 For if by the offence of the one death reigned by the one, much rather shall those who receive the abundance of grace, and of the free gift of righteousness, reign in life by the one Jesus Christ:) 17 For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God's abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.
18 so then as [it was] by one offence towards all men to condemnation, so by one righteousness towards all men for justification of life. 18 Consequently, just as the result of one trespass was condemnation for all men, so also the result of one act of righteousness was justification that brings life for all men.
19 For as indeed by the disobedience of the one man the many have been constituted sinners, so also by the obedience of the one the many will be constituted righteous. 19 For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.
20 But law came in, in order that the offence might abound; but where sin abounded grace has overabounded, 20 The law was added so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more,
21 in order that, even as sin has reigned in [the power of] death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. 21 so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
