Romans 5
Lamsa Bible Par ▾ 
1THEREFORE, being justified by faith, let us have peace with God through our LORD Jesus Christ; 2Through him we have been brought by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and are proud in the hope of the glory of God. 3And not only so, but we also glory in our tribulations: knowing that tribulation perfects patience in us; 4And patience, experience; and experience, hope: 5And hope causes no one to be ashamed; because the love of God is poured in our hearts by the Holy Spirit which is given to us.

6But Christ at this time, because of our weaknesses, died for the sake of the wicked. 7Hardly would any man die for the sake of the wicked: but for the sake of the good, one might be willing to die. 8God has here manifested his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9Much more then, being justified by his blood, we shall be delivered from wrath through him. 10For 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. 11And not only so, but we also glory in God through our LORD Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the reconciliation.

12Just as sin entered into the world by one man, and death by means of sin, so death was imposed upon all men, inasmuch as they all have sinned: 13For until the law was given, though sin was in the world, it was not considered sin, because there was no law. 14Nevertheless, death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them who had not sinned in the manner of the transgression of the law by Adam, who is the likeness of him that was to come.

15But the measure of the gift of God was not the measure of the fall. If therefore, because of the fall of one, many died, how much more will the grace and gift of God, because of one man, Jesus Christ, be increased ? 16And the effect of the gift of God was greater than the effect of the offence of Adam: for while the judgment from one man’s offence resulted in condemnation of many, the gift of God in forgiveness of sins resulted in righteousness to many more. 17For if by one man’s offence, death reigned, how much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.

18In like manner as by one man’s offence, condemnation came upon all men, even so by the righteousness of one man, will the victory unto life be to all men. 19For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one man, shall many be made righteous. 20The introduction of the law caused sin to increase, and when sin had increased, grace became abundant. 21Just as sin had reigned through death, so grace shall reign through righteousness unto eternal life by our LORD Jesus Christ.
