Romans 5
Literal Emphasis Translation Par ▾ 
1Having been showed justified therefore by faith, we have peace toward God, through our Lord, Jesus Christ, 2Through whom also we have access, by the faith, into this grace, in which we stand; and we boast (head up high, exult) upon hope of the glory of God. 3And not only so, but we also boast (glory, head up high) in the tribulations, knowing that the tribulation works perseverance (remaining/enduring under); 4And moreover perseverance, proven character (approval through testing, proof of genuineness); and moreover proven character, hope (expectation of what is sure). 5And hope does not make us ashamed (disgraced, confound, put into confusion), because the love of God has been poured out (gush forth) within our hearts, on account of the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

6For when we were still without adequate strength (without vigor thus frail/ depleted/insufficient), yet in the opportune time Christ died on behalf of the impious (irreverent, ungodly). 7For scarcely for a righteous (correct, innocent, just) man will anyone die. For on behalf of an inherently good man perhaps someone would even have the daring courage (boldness, endurance) to die. 8But God demonstrates His love unto us, in that, we being still sinners, Christ died on behalf of us. 9Much more then, now having been justified by His blood, we will be saved from the wrath because of Him. 10For if, being enemies, we have been reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we will be saved in His life. 11And not only this, but we are also boasting in God, because of our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we now received the reconciliation (restoration to an exact point of favor).

12Because of this, as by one man the sin entered into the world, and by the sin, the death; so also the death passed through (spread) to all men, for all that sinned. 13 14However the death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over those who have not sinned in the likeness of the transgression (going contrary, over stepping) of Adam, who is a type of the coming One.

15But, not as the fault so also is the free gift. For if by the fault of the one the many did die, much more did the grace of God and the free gift in grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, to the many did abound. 16And not as through one who did sin, is the free gift. For indeed the judgment was of the one to punishment following condemnation; but the free gift is of many faults unto justification. 17For if by the fault of the one the death reigned by the one; much more those, which receive the exceeding abundance of the grace and of the free gift of the just righteousness, in life will reign because of the One, Jesus Christ.

18So then, as through the one fault condemnation came to all men, so also through one act of righteousness justification of life came to all men. 19For as through the disobedience (hearing that will not comply- to hear contrary) of the one man, the many were constituted sinners, so also through the obedience (submission to what is heard- to hear beneath) of the One, will the many be constituted righteous (innocent, correct). 20Now the law entered in that the fault might abound, however where the sin abounded, the grace abounded more exceedingly. 21That as the sin reigned in death, so also the grace might reign through righteousness, unto life eternal, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
