Romans 5
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1Having been declared righteous, then, by faith, we have peace toward God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2through whom also we have the access by faith into this grace in which we have stood, and we boast on the hope of the glory of God. 3And not only [so], but we also boast in the tribulations, knowing that the tribulation works endurance; 4and the endurance, experience; and the experience, hope; 5and the hope does not make ashamed, because the love of God has been poured forth in our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.

6For in our being still ailing, Christ in due time died for the impious; 7for scarcely for a righteous man will anyone die, for the good man perhaps someone also dares to die; 8and God commends His own love to us, that, in our being still sinners, Christ died for us; 9much more, then, having been declared righteous now in His blood, we will be saved through Him from the wrath; 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 [so], but we are also boasting in God, through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we now received the reconciliation;

12because of this, even as through one man sin entered into the world, and through sin—death; and thus to all men death passed through, for that all sinned; 13for until law sin was in the world: and sin is not reckoned when there is not law; 14but death reigned from Adam until Moses, even on those having not sinned in the likeness of Adam’s transgression, who is a type of Him who is coming.

15But not as the offense so also [is] the free gift; for if by the offense of the one the many died, much more the grace of God, and the free gift in grace of the one man Jesus Christ, abound to the many; 16and not as through one who sinned [is] the free gift, for the judgment indeed [is] of one to condemnation, but the gift [is] of many offenses to a declaration of “Righteous,” 17for if by the offense of the one death reigned through the one, much more those who are receiving the abundance of grace and of the free gift of righteousness, in life will reign through the one—Jesus Christ.

18So, then, as through one offense to all men [it is] to condemnation, so also through one declaration of “Righteous” [it is] to all men to justification of life; 19for as through the disobedience of the one man, the many were constituted sinners: so also through the obedience of the One, will the many be constituted righteous. 20And law came in, that the offense might abound, and where sin abounded, grace hyper-abounded, 21that even as sin reigned in death, so also grace may reign, through righteousness, to continuous life, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
