5:1Therefore being justified by faith, we have
peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
5:2 By whom also we have access by faith into
this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
5:3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations
also; knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
5:4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope.
5:5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad
in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is
given unto us.
5:6 For when we were yet without strength,
in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
5:7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet peradventure
for a good man some would even dare to die.
5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet
sinners, Christ died for us.
5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved
from wrath through him.
5:10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the
death of his Son, much more,
being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life
(His resurrection and subsequent existing

2:32,33; Hebrews 10:12; 1Peter
5:11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus
Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement (original
for 'atonement' is 'change'; what change?
a change from being a child of the dark side to a son of God; a change
in the mind that accompanies this, where now, one is no longer a victim
of mass mind negative thinking, but instead, according to how God now sees
us, equal with Him, with all that means. This is the good news, the gospel.
2:11. John 17:11)."
5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered
into the world and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for
that all have (word 'have', not in original;
means 'all are included in Adam's sin') sinned.
5:13 For until the law (the
Mosaic Law) sin was in the world. But
sin is not imputed when there is no law. (it's
saying that sin existed before the Mosaic Law, but as there was no way
to measure it until the law, it was not attributed
5:14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them
that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's
transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.
5:15 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 one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.
5:16 And not as it was by one that sinned (Adam),
so is the gift (of
all). For the judgment was by one to condemnation
but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.
5:17 For if by one man's offence death reigned by one, much more they
which receive abundance of grace and of
i f t of righteousness
shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.
5:18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men
even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto
5:19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by
the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
5:20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where
sin abounded, grace did much more abound.
5:21 That as sin hath reigned
unto death, even so might grace
reign through righteousness unto eternal
life by Jesus Christ our Lord.
