And not only so: but we glory also in tribulation, knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
And patience trial; and trial hope;
And hope confoundeth not: because the charity of God is poured forth in our hearts, by the Holy Ghost who is given to us.
For why did Christ, when as yet we were weak, according to the time, die for the ungodly?
For scarce for a just man will one die: yet perhaps for a good man some one would dare to die.
But God commendeth his charity towards us: because when as yet we were sinners according to the time.
Christ died for us. Much more therefore, being now justified by his blood, shall we be saved from wrath through him.
For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son: much more, being reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.
And not only so: but also we glory in God, through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received reconciliation.
Wherefore as by one man sin entered into this world and by sin death: and so death passed upon all men, in whom all have sinned.
For until the law sin was in the world: but sin was not imputed, when the law was not.
