For (A)while we were still weak, at the right time (B)Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but (C)God shows his love for us in that (D)while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, (E)we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from (F)the wrath of God. 10 For if (G)while we were enemies (H)we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by (I)his life. 11 More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received (J)reconciliation.

Death in Adam, Life in Christ

12 Therefore, just as (K)sin came into the world through one man, and (L)death through sin, and (M)so death spread to all men[a] because (N)all sinned— 13 for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but (O)sin is not counted where there is no law. 14 Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sinning was not (P)like the transgression of Adam, (Q)who was a type of (R)the one who was to come.

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 (S)many.
