Romans 5

Being therefore justified by faith, we have peace with Allah through our Lord ‘Isa al-Masih; 2through whom we also have our access by faith into this grace in which we stand. We rejoice in hope of the glory of Allah. 3Not only this, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering works perseverance; 4and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope: 5and hope does not disappoint us, because Allah’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. 6For while we were yet weak, at the right time al-Masih died for the ungodly. 7For one will hardly die for a righteous man. Yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. 8But Allah commends his own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, al-Masih died for us.

9Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we will be saved from Allah’s wrath through him. 10For if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to Allah through the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we will be saved by his life.

11Not only so, but we also rejoice in Allah through our Lord ‘Isa al-Masih, through whom we have now received the reconciliation. 12Sin entered into the world through one man, and death through sin; and so death passed to all men, because all sinned. 13For before the Taurat with its shariah was given, sin was in the world; but sin is not taken into account when there is no shariah14Nevertheless death reigned from Adam until Musa, even over those whose sins weren’t like Adam’s disobedience, who is a foreshadowing of him who was to come. 15But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if by the trespass of the one man many died, much more did the grace of Allah, and the gift by the grace of the one man, ‘Isa al-Masih, abound to many. 16The gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned: for judgment came by the one resulting in condemnation, but the free gift came after many trespasses, resulting in justification. 17For if by the trespass of the one, death reigned through the one; so much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one, ‘Isa al-Masih. 18So then as through one trespass, all men were condemned; even so through one act of righteousness, all men were justified, resulting in life. 19For just as through the one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the one will many be made righteous. 20The Taurat with its shariah was added that the trespass might abound; but where sin abounded, grace abounded much more; 21that just as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through ‘Isa al-Masih our Lord.
