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.
