having been justified [or, declared righteous] by faith, we have peace toward
God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2through whom also we have the
access [or, privilege to enter] by faith into this grace in which we have stood,
and we boast [or, rejoice] in the hope [or, confident expectation] of the glory
of God! 3But not only [this], but we also boast [or, take
pride] in afflictions, knowing that affliction produces patient endurance, 4and
patient endurance proven character, and proven character hope [or, confident
expectation], 5and hope [or, confident expectation] does not
disappoint [us], because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by
[the] Holy Spirit, the One having been given to us!
6For Christ, while we were still weak [or, helpless], at the right time, died on behalf of the impious [or, ungodly]. 7For scarcely [or, only rarely] will anyone die on behalf of a righteous [person]; for perhaps someone even dares [or, might be prepared] to die on behalf of the good [person]. 8But God demonstrates His own love to [or, for] us, [in] that us still being sinful [people] [fig., while we were still sinners], Christ died on our behalf!
9Much more then, having been justified
[or, declared righteous] now by His blood, we will be saved from the wrath
through Him. 10For if, being enemies, we were reconciled to God
through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we will be
saved by His life. 11But not only [this], but we also boast
[or, rejoice] in God, through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we now
received the reconciliation.
12For this reason, even as through one
man sin entered into the world, and through sin death; and thus death passed
through [or, extended] to all people, for that [or, because] all sinned; 13for
until [the] Law sin was in the world, but sin is not accounted [or, imputed]
[there] not being law [or, when [there] is no law]. 14But
death reigned from Adam until Moses, even on the ones not having sinned
according to the likeness of the transgression of
Adam, who is a type of the coming
15But not as the offense so also [is] the
gracious gift; for if by the offense of the one [man] the many died, much more
the grace of God and the free gift by grace of the one Man Jesus Christ abounded
to the many. 16And not as through one [man] having sinned [is] the
gift; for on the one hand the judgment from one [offense resulted] in
condemnation, on the other hand the gracious gift from many offences [resulted]
in justification [or, a declared righteousness]. 17For if by the
offense of the one [man] death reigned through that one [man], much more the ones
receiving the abundance of the grace and of the free gift of the righteousness
in life will reign through the one [Man], Jesus Christ.
18So, consequently, as through one
offense [judgment came] to all people [resulting] in condemnation, so also [the
gift came] through one righteous deed to all people [resulting] in justification
[or, a declared righteousness] of life. 19For even as through the
disobedience of the one man, the many were constituted [or, caused to be]
sinful, so also through the obedience of the one [Man], the many will be
constituted righteous. 20But [the] Law entered alongside so that the
offense should abound, but where sin abounded, grace super-abounded, 21so
that even as sin reigned by death, so also grace reigns through righteousness to
eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord!
