For until the Law sin was in the World, that is, before the Law of Moses was given, Men were capable of offending against fome other Law, for otherwise Sin could not have been imputed to them, for Sin.i's not imputed where obere is no Lam.

that was to come: 15. But not as the offence, to also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one, many be dead; much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. 16. And not as it was by one that sinned so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation ; but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. 17. For if * by one mans offence, [Or, by one offence] death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace, and of the gift of righteousness, shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. 18. Therefore, as* by the offence of one (Or, by one offence] judgment came upon all men to condemnation: even fo* by the righteousness of one [Or, by one righteousness], the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19. For as by one mans disobedience many were made simmers : fo by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. 20.
