Shalom with God through Messiah
1Therefore, having been made righteous by trusting, we have shalom with God through our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.
2Through Him we also have gained access by faith into this grace in which we stand and boast in the hope of God’s glory.
3And not only that, but we also boast in suffering—knowing that suffering produces perseverance;
4and perseverance, character; and character, hope.
5And hope does not disappoint, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Ruach ha-Kodesh who was given to us.
6For while we were still helpless, at the right time Messiah died for the ungodly.
7For rarely will anyone die for a righteous man—though perhaps for a good man someone might even dare to die.
8But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Messiah died for us.
9How much more then, having now been set right by His blood, shall we be saved from God’s wrath through Him.
10For if, while we were yet enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved by His life.
11And not only that, but we also boast in God through our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, through whom we have now received reconciliation.
Yet Sin Reigns through Death
12So then, just as sin came into the world through one man and death through sin, in the same way death spread to all men because all sinned.
13For up until the Torah, sin was in the world; but sin does not count as sin when there is no law.
14Nevertheless death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over those who had not sinned in a manner similar to the violation of Adam, who is a pattern of the One to come.
15But the gracious gift is not like the transgression. For if many died because of the transgression of one man, how much more did the grace of God overflow to many through the gift of one Man—Yeshua the Messiah.
16Moreover, the gift is not like what happened through the one who sinned. For on the one hand, the judgment from one violation resulted in condemnation; but on the other hand, the gracious gift following many transgressions resulted in justification.
17For if by the one man’s transgression, death reigned through the one, how much more shall those who receive the overflow of grace and the gift of righteousness reign in life through the One, Messiah Yeshua.
18So then, through the transgression of one, condemnation came to all men; likewise, through the righteousness of one came righteousness of life to all men.
19For just as through the disobedience of one man, many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of one man, many will be set right forever.
20Now the Torah came in so that transgression might increase. But where sin increased, grace overflowed even more—
21so that just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness, to eternal life through Messiah Yeshua our Lord.
