through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.5

12 Wherefore, as 'by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin ; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned :

13 (For until the law sin was in the world : but *sin is not imputed when there is no law.

14 Nevertheless y death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, ? who is the figure of him that was to come.

Gal. iv.9 : But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn yé again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage ?

Gen. iii. 6: She took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. 1 Cor. XV.21 : By man came death.

"Gen. ii. 17 : In the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. 2 Espr. iii. 7: Unto him [ Adam] thou gavest commandment to love thy way: which he transgressed, and immediately thou appointedst death in him, and in his generations. Rom.i.32 : They which commit such things are worthy of death. do. vi. 21, 23 : What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed ? for the end of those things is death. The wages of sin is death. Gal. vi. 8: He that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption. James, i. 15 : Sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

2 1 Cor. xv. 21, 22, 45 : Since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

17 For if by one man's offence !! death reigned by one; much more they which receive dabundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall 'reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)

18 Therefore as by the offence of one 12 judgment 13 came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one 14 the free gift came upon all men 5 unto justification of life.

19 For as by one man's disobedience many 15 were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
