(A)who will repay each person according to his deeds: to those who by (B)perseverance in doing good seek (C)glory, honor, and (D)immortality, He will give (E)eternal life; but to those who are (F)self-serving and (G)do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, He will give wrath and indignation. There will be (H)tribulation and distress [a]for every soul of mankind who does evil, [b]for the Jew (I)first and also [c]for the Greek, 10 but (J)glory, honor, and peace to everyone who does what is good, to the Jew (K)first and also to the Greek. 11 For (L)there is no partiality with God.

12 For all who have sinned [d](M)without the Law will also perish [e]without the Law, and all who have sinned [f]under the Law will be judged [g]by the Law; 13 for it is (N)not the hearers [h]of the Law who are [i]righteous before God, but the doers [j]of the Law who will be justified. 14 For when Gentiles who do not have [k]the Law [l](O)instinctively perform the requirements of the Law, these, though not having [m]the Law, are a law to themselves, 15 in that they show (P)the work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience testifying and their thoughts alternately accusing or else defending them, 16 on the day when, (Q)according to my gospel, (R)God will judge the secrets of mankind through Christ Jesus.

12 Therefore, just as through (A)one man sin entered into the world, and (B)death through sin, and (C)so death spread to all mankind, because all sinned— 13 for [a]until the Law sin was in the world, but (D)sin is not [b]counted against anyone when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over those who had not sinned (E)in the likeness of the [c]violation committed by Adam, who is a [d](F)type of Him who was to come.

15 But [e]the gracious gift is not like the offense. For if by the offense of (G)the one (H)the many died, much more did the grace of God and the gift by (I)the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many. 16 The gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned; for on the one hand (J)the judgment arose from one offense, [f]resulting in condemnation, but on the other hand the gracious gift arose from many offenses, [g]resulting in justification. 17 For if by the offense of the one, death reigned (K)through the one, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness (L)reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.

18 So then, as through (M)one offense [h]the result was condemnation to all mankind, so also through one (N)act of righteousness [i]the result was (O)justification of life to all mankind. 19 For as through the one man’s disobedience (P)the many (Q)were made sinners, so also through (R)the obedience of the One (S)the many will be made righteous. 20 [j](T)The Law came in so that the offense would increase; but where sin increased, (U)grace abounded all the more, 21 so that, as (V)sin reigned in death, so also (W)grace would reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
