Sin and Death Through Adam; Righteous and Life Through Christ
12Therefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
13(For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
14Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned in the likeness of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.
15So also is the free gift
not like the offense. For if through the offense of one many are dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, has abounded unto many
16So is the gift not like it was by one that sinned: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offenses unto justification
17For if by one man's offense death reigned by one; much more they who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ
18Therefore as by the offense of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life
19For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous
20Moreover the law entered, that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound
21That as sin has reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.
