- Youngs Literal Bible
5:17 There is a difference between grace and the gift. Grace is opposed to the offence; the gift, to death, being the gift of life.
Ro 5:17 For if by one man's offence. The superabounding grace of Christ is still further shown. Death reigned by one. As a result of Adam's one offense, death reigned over men. They which receive abundance of grace. So, on the other hand, those who accept Christ's grace, and enjoy his righteousness, shall, through him, reign in life. The life spoken of is the resurrection from the grave, and the privilege, not the guarantee, of eternal life that is offered through the gospel.

In Adam we all were dead : Held in bondage : In Christ Jesus we all live : wherein we are all made free from sin and death : In Jesus Christ we have the gift of Grace : Salvation : and righteousness in Jesus : He is my righteousness : Therefore through Jesus Christ I rule and reign in my life. Praise God : The words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart shall be pleasing to my Lord ,who is my strength and redeemer. Yes !!! Amen !!!

If the sin of one Adam brought death upon all human race, the grace and free gift of righteousness by Jesus Christ brought life to all that believe in Him.
