Rom.5:17 17εἰ γὰρ τῷ τοῦ ἑνὸς παραπτώματι, θάνατος ἐβασίλευσεν διὰ τοῦ ἑνός· πολλῷ μᾶλλον οἱ τὴν περισσείαν τῆς χάριτος καὶ τῆς δωρεᾶς τῆς δικαιοσύνης, λαμβάνοντες ἐν ζωῇ βασιλεύσουσιν διὰ τοῦ ἑνός, Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ. 17 For {NEQ} the sin of this one man , Adam , caused {NEQ} death to rule over many {RPT} {RPT} {RPT} . But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of {NEQ} righteousness , for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man , Jesus Christ .
