so grace might reign through righteousness, unto eternal life, by Jesus Christ our Lord.
and yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned after the likeness of Adam's transgression, who is the type of Him that was to come.
And of his fulness have we all received, even grace for grace.
Wherefore as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin, so death passed upon all men, for to that all have sinned:
For the wages of sin is death: but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; nor shall any one force them out of my hand.
For the promise made to Abraham, or to his seed, that he should be heir of the world, was not by the law, but by the righteousness of faith:
For if, by the offence of one, death reigned through one, much more they who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness, shall reign in life through one, even Jesus Christ.
Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to obey it in the lusts thereof.
For sin shall have no power over you, inasmuch as ye are not under the law, but under grace.
God forbid! Know ye not, that to whom ye present yourselves servants to obedience, his servants ye are whom ye obey? either of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
And if Christ be in you, the body indeed is dead because of sin, but the spirit is alive because of righteousness.
Let us therefore come with freedom to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace for our seasonable help.
But may the God of all grace, who hath called us to his eternal glory in Christ Jesus, after ye have suffered a little while, make you perfect, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.
Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us, in the righteousness of our God, and of our saviour Jesus Christ:
And the testimony is this, that God hath given to us eternal life; and this life is in his Son.
