Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 For which reason, because we have righteousness through faith, let us be at 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 Through whom, in the same way, we have been able by faith to come to this grace in which we now are; and let us have joy 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 so, but let us have joy in our troubles: in the knowledge that trouble gives us the power of waiting; 3 Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;
4 And waiting gives experience; and experience, hope: 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope.
5 And hope does not put to shame; because our hearts are full of the love of God through the Holy Spirit which 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 when we were still without strength, at the right time Christ gave his life for evil-doers. 6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.
7 Now it is hard for anyone to give his life even for an upright man, though it might be that for a good man someone would give his life. 7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die.
8 But God has made clear his love to us, in that, when we were still sinners, Christ gave his life for us. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
9 Much more, if we now have righteousness by his blood, will salvation from the wrath of God come to us 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 haters of God, the death of his Son made us at peace with him, much more, now that we are his friends, will we have salvation through 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 we have joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we are now at peace with God. 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 reason, as through one man sin came into the world, and death because of sin, and so death came to all men, because all have done evil: 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 Because, till the law came, sin was in existence, but sin is not put to the account of anyone when there is no law to be broken. 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 still death had power from Adam till Moses, even over those who had not done wrong like Adam, who is a picture 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 the free giving of God is not like the wrongdoing of man. For if, by the wrongdoing of one man death came to numbers of men, much more did the grace of God, and the free giving by the grace of one man, Jesus Christ, come to men. 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 the free giving has not the same effect as the sin of one: for the effect of one man's sin was punishment by the decision of God, but the free giving had power to give righteousness to wrongdoers in great number. 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 wrongdoing of one, death was ruling through the one, much more will those to whom has come the wealth of grace and the giving of righteousness, be ruling in life through the one, even 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 the effect of one act of wrongdoing was that punishment came on all men, even so the effect of one act of righteousness was righteousness of life for all men. 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 Because, as numbers of men became sinners through the wrongdoing of one man, even so will great numbers get righteousness through the keeping of the word of God by one man. 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 And the law came in addition, to make wrongdoing worse; but where there was much sin, there was much more grace: 20 The law was added so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more,
21 That, as sin had power in death, so grace might have power 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.
