Bible: Rom 5:15-21

5:15 But the gracious gift is not like the transgression. 1  For if the many died through the transgression of the one man, 2  how much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one man Jesus Christ multiply to the many! 5:16 And the gift is not like the one who sinned. 3  For judgment, resulting from the one transgression, 4  led to condemnation, but 5  the gracious gift from the many failures 6  led to justification. 5:17 For if, by the transgression of the one man, 7  death reigned through the one, how much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one, Jesus Christ!

5:18 Consequently, 8  just as condemnation 9  for all people 10  came 11  through one transgression, 12  so too through the one righteous act 13  came righteousness leading to life 14  for all people. 5:19 For just as through the disobedience of the one man 15  many 16  were made sinners, so also through the obedience of one man 17  many 18  will be made righteous. 5:20 Now the law came in 19  so that the transgression 20  may increase, but where sin increased, grace multiplied all the more, 5:21 so that just as sin reigned in death, so also grace will reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
