Being justified by faith, we have peace with God,
Romans 5:1 Because therfore that we are iustifyed by fayth, we are at peace with God, thorow oure Lorde Iesus Christ:
and joy in our hope,
Romans 5:2 by whom also it chaunsed vnto vs to be brought in thorow fayth, vnto thys grace, wherin we stande, and reioyce in hope of þe glory of God. Romans 5:3 Not that onely: but also we reioyce in tribulacyons: knowyng that tribulacyon bryngeth pacience, Romans 5:4 pacience bryngeth experience, experience bryngeth hope. Romans 5:5 And hope maketh not ashamed: because the loue of God is sheed abroad in oure hertes, by the holy ghost whych is geuen vnto vs. Romans 5:6 For when we were yet weake, accordyng to the tyme, Christ dyed for vs whych were vngodly: Romans 5:7 Yet scace wyll eny man dye for a ryghtewes man. Parauenture for a good man durst a man dye.
that since we were reconciled by his blood, when we were enemies,
Romans 5:8 But God setteth out his loue toward vs, seynge þt whyll we were yet synners Christ dyed for vs. Romans 5:9 Moch more then now (we that are iustifyed by hys bloud) shall be saued from wrath thorow hym.
we shall much more be saved being reconciled.
Romans 5:10 For yf when we were enemyes, we were reconcyled to God by the deeth of hys sonne: moch more, seynge we are reconcyled, we shalbe preserued by hys lyfe. Romans 5:11 Not onely this, but we also ioye in God by the meanes of oure Lorde Iesus Christ, by whom we haue now optayned the attonment.
As sin and death came by Adam,
Romans 5:12 Wherfore, as by one man, synne entred into the worlde, and deeth by the meanes of synne. Romans 5:13 Euen so deeth also went ouer all men, in so moch as all we haue synned. For euen vnto þe lawe was synne in þe worlde, but synne is not imputed, whan ther is no lawe: Romans 5:14 neuerthelesse deeth raygned from Adam to Moses, euen ouer them also þt had not synned wyth lyke transgression as dyd Adam: which beareth the similitude of him that was to come. Romans 5:15 But the gyfte is not lyke as þe synne. For yf thorow the synne of one, many be deed: moche more plenteous vpon many was the grace of God & gyfte by grace; whych was of one man Iesus Christ. Romans 5:16 And þe gyfte is not ouer one synne: as deeth cam thorow one synne of one þt synned. For damnacyon came of one synne vnto condemnacyon: but þe gyft came to iustify from many synnes.
so much more righteousness and life by Jesus Christ.
Romans 5:17 For yf by the synne of one, deeth raygned by the meanes of one: moch more they (whych receaue aboundance of grace and of the gyfte of ryghtewesnes) shall raygne in lyfe by the meanes of one (that is to saye) Iesus Christ. Romans 5:18 Lyke wyse then as by the synne of one there sprang vp euell on all men to condemnacyon: euen so by the ryghteousnes of one, spryngeth good vpon all men to the ryghteousnes of lyfe. Romans 5:19 For as by one mannes disobedience many became synners: so by the obedience of one, shall many be made ryghteous.
Where sin abounded, grace did superabound.
Romans 5:20 But the lawe in þe meane tyme entred in, þe synne shulde encreace. Neuerthelater where aboundance of synne was, there was more plenteousnes of grace. Romans 5:21 That as synne had raygned vnto deeth, euen so myght grace raygne thorow ryghtewesnes, vnto eternall lyfe, by the helpe of Iesu Christ.
