15 But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man's trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for (A)many. 16 And the free gift is not like the result of that one man's sin. For (B)the judgment following one trespass brought condemnation, but the free gift following many trespasses brought (C)justification. 17 For if, because of one man's trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness (D)reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.

18 Therefore, as one trespass[a] led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness[b] leads to justification and life for (E)all men. 19 For as by the one man's (F)disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man's (G)obedience the many will be made righteous.
