Romans 5:18

Context

5:18 Consequently, 1  just as condemnation 2  for all people 3  came 4  through one transgression, 5  so too through the one righteous act 6  came righteousness leading to life 7  for all people.

1 tn There is a double connective here that cannot be easily preserved in English: “consequently therefore,” emphasizing the conclusion of what he has been arguing.

2 tn Grk “[it is] unto condemnation for all people.”

3 tn Here ἀνθρώπους (anqrwpou") has been translated as a generic (“people”) since both men and women are clearly intended in this context.

4 tn There are no verbs in the Greek text of v. 18, forcing translators to supply phrases like “came through one transgression,” “resulted from one transgression,” etc.

5 sn One transgression refers to the sin of Adam in Gen 3:1-24.

6 sn The one righteous act refers to Jesus’ death on the cross.

7 tn Grk “righteousness of life.”
