10 For if when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life,
11 [a]And not only so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
12 [b]Wherefore, as by [c]one man [d]sin entered into the world, and death by sin, and so death went over all men: [e]in whom all men have sinned.
Romans 5:11He now passeth over to the other part of justification, which consisteth in the free imputation of the obedience of Christ: so that to the remission of sins there is added moreover and besides, the gift of Christ’s righteousness imputed or put upon us by faith, which swalloweth up that unrighteousness which flowed from Adam into us, and all the fruits thereof: so that in Christ we do not only cease to be unjust, but we begin also to be just.
Romans 5:12From Adam, in whom all have sinned, both guiltiness and death (which is the punishment of the guiltiness) came upon all.
Romans 5:12By Adam, who is compared with Christ, like to him in this, that both of them make those who are theirs, partakers of that they have into: but they are unlike in this, that Adam deriveth sin into them that are his, even of nature, and that to death: but Christ maketh them that are his, partakers of his righteousness by grace, and that unto life.
Romans 5:12By sin is meant that disease which is ours by inheritance, and men commonly call it original sin: for so he useth to call that sin in the singular number, whereas, if he speaks of the fruits of it, he useth the plural number, calling them sins.
