King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: 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, experience; and experience, hope: 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope.
5 And hope maketh not ashamed ; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto 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.

11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. 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 the world, and death by sin; and so 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 the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed 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.
