Man is justified through the blood of Christ—Adam fell, and Christ atoned that man might be saved.
1 Therefore being ajustified by bfaith, we have cpeace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
2 By whom also we have access by afaith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
3 And not only so, but we glory in atribulations also: knowing that btribulation worketh cpatience;
4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
5 And ahope maketh not ashamed; because the blove of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
6 For when we were yet without astrength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet asinners, bChrist died for us.
9 Much more then, being now ajustified by his bblood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
10 For if, when we were enemies, we were areconciled to God by the bdeath of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the aatonement.
12 Wherefore, as by one man asin entered into the world, and bdeath by sin; and so cdeath passed upon all men, for that all have dsinned:
13 (For until the law sin was in the world: but asin is not imputed when there is no blaw.
14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s atransgression, who is the bfigure of him that was to come.
15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by aone man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.
16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.
17 For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of agrace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the arighteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto bjustification of life.
19 For as by one man’s adisobedience many were made sinners, so by the bobedience of one shall many be made righteous.
20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through arighteousness unto beternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.
