Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Therefore, [because we] have been declared righteous by faith, we 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 through whom also we have [obtained] access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we boast in the 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 [this], but we also boast in our afflictions, [because we] know that affliction produces patient endurance, 3 Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;
4 and patient endurance, proven character, and proven character, hope, 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope.
5 and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was 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 [while] we were still helpless, yet at the proper time Christ died for the ungodly. 6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.
7 For only rarely will someone die on behalf of a righteous person (for on behalf of a good person possibly someone might even 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 demonstrates his own love for us, [in] that [while] we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
9 Therefore, by much more, [because we] have been declared righteous now by his blood, we will be saved through him from the 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, [while we] were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, by much more, having been reconciled, we will 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 [this], but also [we are] boasting in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now 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 Because of this, just as sin entered into the world through one man, and death through sin, so also death spread to all people because all 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 charged to one's 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 over those who did not sin in the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of the one who is 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 gift is not like the trespass}, for if by the trespass of the one, the many died, by much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, multiply to 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 the gift [is] not as through the one who sinned, for on the one hand, judgment from the one [sin] [led] to condemnation, but the gift, from many trespasses, [led] to 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 trespass of the one [man], death reigned through the one [man], much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through 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 Consequently therefore, as through one trespass [came] condemnation to all people, so also through one righteous deed [came] justification of life to all people. 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 just as through the disobedience of the one man, the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one, the many will be made 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 Now the law came in as a side issue, in order that the trespass could increase, but where sin increased, grace was present in greater abundance, 20 The law was added so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more,
21 so that just as sin reigned in death, so also grace would 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.
