Wages Sin Pays is Death

For the wages sin pays is death, but the gift God gives is everlasting life by Christ Jesus our Lord.
================================
So he takes the initiative to heal the breach. After stating that “the wages sin pays is death,” the Bible goes on to say, “but the gift God gives is everlasting life by Christ Jesus our Lord.”

What Jehovah God eventually did to make good that gift was to provide something that would cover the loss resulting from Adam’s transgression. In Hebrew, the word ka·pharʹat first probably meant “cover” or perhaps “wipe off,” and it is also translated “atonement.” In other words, Jehovah provided a suitable means to cover over sin inherited from Adam and wipe out the damage that resulted so that those who qualify for that gift could be liberated from the condemnation of sin and death.
