Romans 5:15-16

5:15 But the gracious gift is not like the transgression. 1  For if the many died through the transgression of the one man, 2  how much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one man Jesus Christ multiply to the many! 5:16 And the gift is not like the one who sinned. 3  For judgment, resulting from the one transgression, 4  led to condemnation, but 5  the gracious gift from the many failures 6  led to justification.

1 tn Grk “but not as the transgression, so also [is] the gracious gift.”

2 sn Here the one man refers to Adam (cf. 5:14).

3 tn Grk “and not as through the one who sinned [is] the gift.”

4 tn The word “transgression” is not in the Greek text at this point, but has been supplied for clarity.

5 tn Greek emphasizes the contrast between these two clauses more than can be easily expressed in English.

6 tn Or “falls, trespasses,” the same word used in vv. 15, 17, 18, 20.
