And not only [so], but we glory in tribulations also; knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
And hope maketh not ashamed, because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts, by the Holy Spirit which is given to us.
For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet perhaps for a good man some would even dare to die.
But God commendeth his love towards us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall 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, we shall be saved by his life.
And not only [so], but we also joy in God, through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
Wherefore as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.
For until the law, sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
