Romans 5:15-19 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

15 But not as [the] guilt, so the gift; for if through the guilt of one many be dead[a], much more the grace of God and the gift in the grace of one man Jesus Christ hath abounded into many men.

16 And not as by one sin, so by the gift; for the doom of one into condemnation, but the grace of many guilts into justification [for why soothly doom of one into condemnation, grace forsooth of many guilts, or trespassings, into justification].

17 For if in the guilt of one death reigned through one, much more men that take plenty of grace, and of giving, and of rightwiseness, shall reign in life by one Jesus Christ.

18 Therefore as by the guilt of one into all men into condemnation, so [and] by the rightwiseness of one into all men into justifying of life.

19 For as by unobedience of one man many be made sinners, so by the obedience of one many shall be [ordained] just.

  1. Romans 5:15 But not as the guilt, or trespass, so and the gift; soothly if through the trespass of one many be dead

Romans 5:15-19 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

15 But the gift is not like the sin. For if through the sin of one, many are dead, much more lavish upon many was the grace of God and gift by grace, which grace was given by one man: Jesus Christ.

16 And the gift is not over only one sin, as death came through one sin of one man who sinned. For the sentence of condemnation came from one sin. But the gift came to justify from many sins. 17 For if by the sin of one, death reigned by the means of one, much more will those who receive of abundant grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life by the means of one; that is to say, Jesus Christ.

18 Likewise then, just as by the sin of one, condemnation came on all men, so also by the justifying of one comes the righteousness that brings life upon all men. 19 For just as by one man’s disobedience many became sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

Romans 5:15-19 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

15 [a]But yet the gift is not so as is the offense: for if through the offense of [b]that one, many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.

16 [c]Neither is the gift so, as that which entered in by one that sinned: for the fault came of one offense unto condemnation: but the gift is of many offenses to [d]justification.

17 [e]For if by the offense of one, death reigned through one, much more shall they which receive that abundance of grace, and of that gift of that righteousness, [f]reign in life through one, that is, Jesus Christ.

18 [g]Likewise then, as by the offense of one, the fault came on all men to condemnation, so by the justifying of one, the benefit abounded toward all men to the [h]justification of life.

19 [i]For as by one man’s [j]disobedience [k]many were made sinners, so by that obedience of that one, shall many also be made righteous.

  1. Romans 5:15 Adam and Christ are compared together in this respect, that both of them do give and yield to theirs, that which is their own: but herein first they differ, that Adam by nature hath spread his fault to the destruction of many, but Christ’s obedience hath by grace overflowed many.
  2. Romans 5:15 That is, Adam.
  3. Romans 5:16 Another inequality consisteth in this, that by Adam’s one offense men are made guilty, but the righteousness of Christ imputed unto us freely, doth not only absolve us from that one fault, but from all others.
  4. Romans 5:16 To the sentence of absolution, whereby we are quit, and pronounced righteous.
  5. Romans 5:17 The third difference is, that the righteousness of Christ being imputed unto us by grace, is of greater power to bring life, than the offense of Adam is to addict his posterity to death.
  6. Romans 5:17 Be partakers of true and everlasting life.
  7. Romans 5:18 Therefore to be short, as by one man’s offense, the guiltiness came on all men, to make them subject to death: so on the contrary side, the righteousness of Christ, which by God’s mercy is imputed to all believers, justifieth them, that they may become partakers of everlasting life.
  8. Romans 5:18 Not only because our sins are forgiven us, but also because the righteousness of Christ is imputed unto us.
  9. Romans 5:19 The ground of this whole comparison is this, that these two men are set as two stocks or roots, so that out of the one, sin by nature, out of the other, righteousness by grace doth spring forth upon others.
  10. Romans 5:19 So then, sin entered not into us only by following the steps of our forefather, but we take corruption of him by inheritance.
  11. Romans 5:19 This word, Many, is set against this word, A few.

Romans 5:15-19 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. 16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. 17 For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) 18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
