Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 Being justified therefore by faith, let us have peace with 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 also we have access through faith into this grace wherein we stand: and glory in the hope of the glory of the sons 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 so: but we glory also in tribulation, knowing that tribulation worketh patience; 3 Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;
4 And patience trial; and trial hope; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope.
5 And hope confoundeth not: because the charity of God is poured forth in our hearts, by the Holy Ghost who is 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 why did Christ, when as yet we were weak, according to the time, die for the ungodly? 6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.
7 For scarce for a just man will one die: yet perhaps for a good man some one would 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 commendeth his charity towards us: because when as yet we were sinners according to the time. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
9 Christ died for us. Much more therefore, being now justified by his blood, shall we be saved from wrath through him. 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, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son: much more, being reconciled, shall we be saved by 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 so: but also we glory in God, through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received 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 Wherefore as by one man sin entered into this world and by sin death: and so death passed upon all men, in whom 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 the law sin was in the world: but sin was not imputed, when the law was not. 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 unto Moses, even over them also who have not sinned, after the similitude of the transgression of Adam, who is a figure of him who was 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 not as the offence, so also the gift. For if by the offence of one, many died: much more the grace of God and the gift, by the grace of one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto 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 not as it was by one sin, so also is the gift. For judgment indeed was by one unto condemnation: but grace is 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 one man’s offence death reigned through one; much more they who receive abundance of grace and of the gift and of justice shall reign in life through 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 Therefore, as by the offence of one, unto all men to condemnation: so also by the justice of one, unto all men to 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 by the disobedience of one man, many were made sinners: so also by the obedience of one, many shall be made just. 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 Now the law entered in that sin might abound. And where sin abounded, grace did more abound. 20 The law was added so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more,
21 That as sin hath reigned to death: so also grace might reign by justice unto life everlasting, 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.
