Berean Literal Bible
The Triumph of Faith
1Therefore, having been justified by faith, we havea peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we boast in the hope of the glory of God.
3And not only so, but also we glory in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; 4and perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5And hope does not make us ashamed, because the love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, the One having been given to us.
Christ's Sacrifice for the Ungodly
6Yet indeed Christ, of us still being without strength, according to the right time, died for the ungodly. 7For rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though on behalf of the good man perhaps someone would even dare to die. 8But God demonstrates His love to us, that of us being still sinners, Christ died for us.
9Therefore much more, having been justified now by His blood, we will be saved by Him from wrath! 10For if, being enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved in His life! 11And not only so, but also we are rejoicing in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.
Death in Adam, Life in Christ
12Because of this, just as sin entered into the world through one man, and death through sin, so also death passed to all men, because all sinned. 13For until the Law, sin was in the world; but sin is not imputed, there being no law. 14Nevertheless death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over those not having sinned in the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of the coming One.
15But so also the gift is not like the trespass. For if by the trespass of the one, the many died, how much more did the grace of God and the gift in grace, which is of the one man Jesus Christ, abound to the many! 16And the gift is not as through one having sinned. For truly the judgment from one was unto condemnation; but the gift is out of many trespasses unto justification. 17For if, by the trespass of the one, death reigned through the one, how much more will those receiving the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one, Jesus Christ!
18So then, just as through one trespass, it is unto condemnation to all men, so also through one act of righteousness it is unto justification of life to all men. 19For as indeed through the disobedience of the one man, the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the One, the many will be made righteous.
20Now the Law entered so that trespass might abound; but where sin abounded, grace overabounded,
21so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness, unto eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
