Romans 5:10-16 (Epistle)

10
For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.
11
And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.
12
Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned –
13
(For until the law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
14
Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned according to the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come.
15
But the free gift is not like the offense. For if by the one man’s offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many.
16
And the gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned. For the judgment which came from one offense resulted in condemnation, but the free gift which came from many offenses resulted in justification.
