16: The first sin infected everyone.
For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.

Within Adam was the seed of all mankind. His sin in the beginning was everyone’s sin. The “very good” created by God became unrighteous in all its ways for all generations to come.
Anyone with Adam as their first father is marked by sin.
Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me.
Psalm 51:5 NIV
