6 Abraham serves as an example. He believed God, and that faith was regarded by God to be his approval of Abraham.
7 You must understand that people who have faith are Abraham's descendants.
8 Scripture saw ahead of time that God would give his approval to non-Jewish people who have faith. So Scripture announced the Good News to Abraham ahead of time when it said, "Through you all the people of the world will be blessed."
9 So people who believe are blessed together with Abraham, the man of faith.
