Romans 5:12-14 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

12 Therefore as by one man sin entered into this world [sin entered into the world], and by sin death, and so death passed forth into all men, in which man all men sinned.

13 For unto the law [Soothly till to the law] sin was in the world; but sin was not reckoned, when [the] law was not.

14 But death reigned from Adam unto Moses [But death reigned from Adam till to Moses], also into them that sinned not in likeness of the trespassing of Adam, the which is likeness of Christ to coming [the which is form, or likeness, of one to come].

Romans 5:12-14 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

12 And so it is just as sin entered into the world through one man, and death by means of sin; and in this way death went over all people, inasmuch as all people sinned. 13 For even to the time of the law, sin was in the world. But where no law is, there sin is not regarded. 14 Nevertheless, death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those also who did not sin with such a transgression as did Adam, who is the similitude of him who is to come.

Romans 5:12-14 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

12 [a]Wherefore, as by [b]one man [c]sin entered into the world, and death by sin, and so death went over all men: [d]in whom all men have sinned.

13 [e]For unto the [f]time of the Law was sin in the world, but sin is not [g]imputed, while there is no law.

14 [h]But death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over [i]them also that sinned not after the like [j]manner of the transgression of Adam, [k]which was the figure of him that was to come.


  1. Romans 5:12 From Adam, in whom all have sinned, both guiltiness and death (which is the punishment of the guiltiness) came upon all.
  2. Romans 5:12 By Adam, who is compared with Christ, like to him in this, that both of them make those who are theirs, partakers of that they have into: but they are unlike in this, that Adam deriveth sin into them that are his, even of nature, and that to death: but Christ maketh them that are his, partakers of his righteousness by grace, and that unto life.
  3. Romans 5:12 By sin is meant that disease which is ours by inheritance, and men commonly call it original sin: for so he useth to call that sin in the singular number, whereas, if he speaks of the fruits of it, he useth the plural number, calling them sins.
  4. Romans 5:12 That is, in Adam.
  5. Romans 5:13 That this is so, that both guiltiness and death began not after the giving and transgressing of Moses’ Law, it appeareth manifestly by that, that men died before that Law was given: for in that they died, sin, which is the cause of death, was then: and in such sort, that it was also imputeth: whereupon it followeth that there was then some Law, the breach whereof was the cause of death.
  6. Romans 5:13 Even from Adam to Moses.
  7. Romans 5:13 Where there is no Law made, no man is punished as faulty and guilty.
  8. Romans 5:14 But that this Law was not that universal Law, and that death did not proceed from any actual sin of everyone particularly, it appeareth hereby, that the very infants which neither could ever know nor transgress that natural Law, are notwithstanding dead as well as Adam.
  9. Romans 5:14 Our infants.
  10. Romans 5:14 Not after that sort as they sin that are of more years, following their lusts: but yet the whole posterity was corrupt in Adam, when as he wittingly and willingly sinned.
  11. Romans 5:14 Now the first Adam answereth the latter, who is Christ, as it is afterward declared.
