Romans 5:10-12 Disciples’ Literal New Testament (DLNT)

10 For if while being enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, by much more having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.

Our Boast Is In God Through Jesus Christ

11 And not only this, but we are also boasting in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through Whom we now received the reconciliation.

This Means That Death And Life Each Originated In The Act of One Man

12 Because of this[a], just as[b] through one man sin entered into the world, and death through the sin, and so death went-through[c] to all people because all sinned—


  1. Romans 5:12 That is, summing up 3:21-5:11: Because we have received the reconciliation as a gift by His grace through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, resulting in righteousness, peace with God, and eternal life. Paul now puts this in broad perspective, comparing Christ’s one act bringing life to all His spiritual descendants to Adam’s one act bringing death to all his physical descendants.
  2. Romans 5:12 Paul breaks off this sentence at ‘because all sinned’ to explain how all sinned; that is, how Adam’s one act affected all his progeny. Then he takes this thought up again in v 18 and completes it, giving the ‘so also’ side.
  3. Romans 5:12 Or, came through, spread.
