Romans 5:6-21

NLT 6 When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. NIV 6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. NLT 7 Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. NIV 7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. NLT 8 But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. NIV 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. NLT 9 And since we have been made right in God’s sight by the blood of Christ, he will certainly save us from God’s condemnation. NIV 9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him! NLT 10 For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son. NIV 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! NLT 11 So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God. NIV 11 Not only is this so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation. NLT 12 When Adam sinned, sin entered the world. Adam’s sin brought death, so death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned. NIV 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-- NLT 13 Yes, people sinned even before the law was given. But it was not counted as sin because there was not yet any law to break. NIV 13 for before the law was given, sin was in the world. But sin is not taken into account when there is no law. NLT 14 Still, everyone died—from the time of Adam to the time of Moses—even those who did not disobey an explicit commandment of God, as Adam did. Now Adam is a symbol, a representation of Christ, who was yet to come. NIV 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. NLT 15 But there is a great difference between Adam’s sin and God’s gracious gift. For the sin of this one man, Adam, brought death to many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of forgiveness to many through this other man, Jesus Christ. NIV 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! NLT 16 And the result of God’s gracious gift is very different from the result of that one man’s sin. For Adam’s sin led to condemnation, but God’s free gift leads to our being made right with God, even though we are guilty of many sins. NIV 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. NLT 17 For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man, Jesus Christ. NIV 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. NLT 18 Yes, Adam’s one sin brings condemnation for everyone, but Christ’s one act of righteousness brings a right relationship with God and new life for everyone. NIV 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. NLT 19 Because one person disobeyed God, many became sinners. But because one other person obeyed God, many will be made righteous. NIV 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. NLT 20 God’s law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were. But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant. NIV 20 The law was added so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more, NLT 21 So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. NIV 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.
