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.
