Romans 4


4:1 What shall we then say that Abraham our father, as
 pertaining to the flesh, hath found?
4:2 For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath [whereof] to
 glory, but not before God.
4:3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it
 was counted to him for righteousness.
4:4 Now to him that worketh, is the reward not reckoned of
 grace, but of debt.
4:5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that
 justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
4:6 Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man to
 whom God imputeth righteousness without works,
4:7 [Saying], Blessed [are] they whose iniquities are forgiven,
 and whose sins are covered.
4:8 Blessed [is] the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.
4:9 [Cometh] this blessedness then upon the circumcision [only],
 or upon the uncircumcision also? For we say that faith was
 reckoned to Abraham for righteousness.
4:10 How then was it reckoned? when he was in circumcision, or
 in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision.
4:11 And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the
 righteousness of the faith, which [he had yet] being
 uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that
 believe, though they are not circumcised, that righteousness
 might be imputed to them also;
4:12 And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the
 circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith
 of our father Abraham which [he had] being [yet] uncircumcised.
4:13 For the promise that he should be the heir of the world
 [was] not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but
 through the righteousness of faith.
4:14 For if they who are of the law [are] heirs, faith is made
 void, and the promise made of no effect.
4:15 Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, [there
 is] no transgression.
4:16 Therefore [it is] of faith, that [it might be] by grace; to
 the end the promise might be sure to all the seed, not to that
 only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the
 faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all;
4:17 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many
 nations) before him whom he believed, [even] God, who reviveth
 the dead, and calleth those things which are not, as though
 they were.
4:18 Who against hope believed with hope, that he should become
 the father of many nations; according to that which was spoken,
 So shall thy seed be.
4:19 And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body
 now dead, when he was about a hundred years old, neither yet
 the deadness of Sarah's womb.
4:20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief;
 but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;
4:21 And being fully persuaded, that what he had promised, he
 was able also to perform.
4:22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.
4:23 Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was
 imputed to him;
4:24 But for us also, to whom it will be imputed, if we believe
 on him that raised Jesus our Lord from the dead,
4:25 Who was delivered for our offenses, and raised again for
 our justification.
