Romans 5:17-19

Death in Adam, Life in Christ

17 For if, because of one man's trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness e reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.

18 Therefore, as one trespass 1 led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness 2 leads to justification and life for f all men. 19 For as by the one man's g disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man's h obedience the many will be made righteous.
