Modern Literal Version
[Romans 5]




     5:1 Therefore having been made righteous from faith, we have peace toward God through our Lord Jesus Christ; 5:2 through whom we also have had our access to this grace in the faith in which we are standing, and we are boasting in hope of the glory of God. 5:3 But not only in this, but we are also boasting in our afflictions, knowing that affliction is working endurance; 5:4 and endurance, approved character, and an approved character, hope; 5:5 and hope does not shameone, because the love* of God has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. 5:6 For* when* we were still weak, according to the proper time, Christ died on behalf of the ungodly. 5:7 For* scarcely will one die on behalf of a righteous man; for* perhaps someone might even dare to die on behalf of the good man. 5:8 But God is establishing his own love* toward us, in that when* we were still sinners, Christ died on our behalf. 5:9 Therefore much more, having been now made righteous in his blood, we will be saved from the wrath of Godthrough him. 5:10 For* if, when* we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, much more, having been reconciled, we will be saved in his life; 5:11 and not only so, but we are also boasting in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.




     5:12 Because of this, just-as sin entered into the world through one man and death through sin, and so death has gone forth to all men, in which all have sinned. 5:13 For* Sin was in the world tillthe law, but sin is not charged to one's account when* there is no law. 5:14 But death reigned from Adam till Moses, even on those who did not sin on the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a pattern of the future one.5:15 But not like the trespass, so also is the gift*. For* if the many died by the trespass of the one, the favor of God and the gift by the favor of the one man, Jesus Christ, abounded much more to the many. 5:16 Now the gift is not as through one who sinned; for* indeed the judgment came from one into condemnation, but the gift*came from many trespasses into an act of righteousness. 5:17 For* if, by the trespass of the one, death reigned through the one; much more they, who are receiving the abundance of the favor and of the gift of righteousness, will be reigning in life through the one, who is Jesus Christ. 5:18 Therefore consequently*, as through one trespass the judgment came to all men to condemnation; so through the righteousness of one manthe gift also came to all men into justification of life. 5:19For* as through the one man's disobedience* the many were designated as sinners, so also through the obedience of the one the many will be designated as righteous. 5:20 But the law entered in beside us, in order that the trespass might increase, but where sin increased, the favor{Or: grace} over-abounded; 5:21 in order that, just-as sin reigned in death, so also the favor {Or: grace} might also reign through righteousness to everlasting life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
