Adam and Christ
12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin, and so death went over all men, in whom all men have sinned.
13 For unto the time of the Law was sin in the world, but sin is not imputed, while there is no law.
14 But death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them also that sinned not after the like manner of the transgression of Adam, which was the figure of him that was to come.
15 But yet the gift is not so as is the offence. 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 Neither is the gift so, as that which entered in by one that sinned; for the fault came of one offence unto condemnation, but the gift is of many offences to justification.
17 For if by the offence of one, death reigned through one, much more shall they which receive the abundance of grace, and of the gift of righteousness, reign in life through one, that is, Jesus Christ.
18 Likewise then, as by the offence of one, the fault came on all men to condemnation, so by the justifying of one, the benefit abounded toward all men to the justification of life.
19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one, shall many also be made righteous.
20 Moreover, the Law entered thereupon, that the offence should abound, nevertheless, where sin abounded, there grace abounded much more;
21 That as sin had reigned unto death, so might grace also reign by righteousness unto eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
1 Corinthians 14:8
And also if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle?

Before, and many years after the KJV was printed, the GENEVA BIBLE was the People's Choice, but an ungodly King made it illegal to publish it any longer: http://www.genevabible.org/Geneva.html Click on "Geneva Bible History" on my site.Yahoo Group Owner
