Romans 5:12-21 (Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition.)
12Wherefore as by one man sin entered into this world, and by sin death; and so death passed upon all men, in whom all have sinned.
13For until the law sin was in the world; but sin was not imputed, when the law was not.
14But death reigned from Adam unto Moses, even over them also who have not sinned after the similitude of the transgression of Adam, who is a figure of him who was to come.
15But not as the offence, so also the gift. For if by the offence of one, many died; much more the grace of God, and the gift, by the grace of one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.
16And not as it was by one sin, so also is the gift. For judgment indeed was by one unto condemnation; but grace is of many offences, unto justification.
17For if by one man's offence death reigned through one; much more they who receive abundance of grace, and of the gift, and of justice, shall reign in life through one, Jesus Christ.
18Therefore, as by the offence of one, unto all men to condemnation; so also by the justice of one, unto all men to justification of life.
19For as by the disobedience of one man, many were made sinners; so also by the obedience of one, many shall be made just.
20Now the law entered in, that sin might abound. And where sin abounded, grace did more abound.
21That as sin hath reigned to death; so also grace might reign by justice unto life everlasting, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
