Romans 5:7-8

For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die.

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Righteous (as used here) = right in general conduct

Good = acts beneficially towards others

The righteous are motivated by justice, the good are motivated by love. So, the verse is saying that hardly anyone would die for a just man, but you might find a few who would die for a loving man.

demonstrates = exhibited
