1What shall we saythen that Abrahamourfather, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found ?
2ForifAbraham were justifiedbyworks, he hath whereof to glory;butnotbeforeGod.3Forwhatsaith the scripture ? AbrahambelievedGod,and it was counted unto himforrighteousness.4Now to him that workethis the rewardnotreckonedofgrace,butofdebt.5But to him that workethnot,butbelievethon him that justifieth the ungodly,hisfaith is countedforrighteousness.6
Even asDavidalsodescribeth the blessedness of the man, unto whomGodimputethrighteousnesswithoutworks,7
Saying, Blessed are they whoseiniquities are forgiven , andwhosesins are covered .
