5:1 we have peace. See text note. Numerous manuscripts support “let us have” peace, but the flow of Paul’s logic supports the first rendering. That “we have now received reconciliation” (v. 11) implies that we are at peace with God already. With peace established, we now have access to God’s presence. The wall of partition has been removed. This peace is not a guarded truce subject to new warfare. It is a permanent peace.
