Romans 4:13-25

CEB 13 The promise to Abraham and to his descendants, that he would inherit the world, didn't come through the Law but through the righteousness that comes from faith. NRS 13 For the promise that he would inherit the world did not come to Abraham or to his descendants through the law but through the righteousness of faith. CEB 14 If they inherit because of the Law, then faith has no effect and the promise has been canceled. NRS 14 If it is the adherents of the law who are to be the heirs, faith is null and the promise is void. CEB 15 The Law brings about wrath. But when there isn't any law, there isn't any violation of the law. NRS 15 For the law brings wrath; but where there is no law, neither is there violation. CEB 16 That's why the inheritance comes through faith, so that it will be on the basis of God's grace. In that way, the promise is secure for all of Abraham's descendants, not just for those who are related by Law but also for those who are related by the faith of Abraham, who is the father of all of us. NRS 16 For this reason it depends on faith, in order that the promise may rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his descendants, not only to the adherents of the law but also to those who share the faith of Abraham (for he is the father of all of us, CEB 17 As it is written: I have appointed you to be the father of many nations. So Abraham is our father in the eyes of God in whom he had faith, the God who gives life to the dead and calls things that don't exist into existence. NRS 17 as it is written, "I have made you the father of many nations")—in the presence of the God in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist. CEB 18 When it was beyond hope, he had faith in the hope that he would become the father of many nations, in keeping with the promise God spoke to him: That's how many descendants you will have. NRS 18 Hoping against hope, he believed that he would become "the father of many nations," according to what was said, "So numerous shall your descendants be." CEB 19 Without losing faith, Abraham, who was nearly 100 years old, took into account his own body, which was as good as dead, and Sarah's womb, which was dead. NRS 19 He did not weaken in faith when he considered his own body, which was already as good as dead (for he was about a hundred years old), or when he considered the barrenness of Sarah's womb. CEB 20 He didn't hesitate with a lack of faith in God's promise, but he grew strong in faith and gave glory to God. NRS 20 No distrust made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, CEB 21 He was fully convinced that God was able to do what he promised. NRS 21 being fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised. CEB 22 Therefore, it was credited to him as righteousness. NRS 22 Therefore his faith "was reckoned to him as righteousness." CEB 23 But the scripture that says it was credited to him wasn't written only for Abraham's sake. NRS 23 Now the words, "it was reckoned to him," were written not for his sake alone, CEB 24 It was written also for our sake, because it is going to be credited to us too. It will be credited to those of us who have faith in the one who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. NRS 24 but for ours also. It will be reckoned to us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead, CEB 25 He was handed over because of our mistakes, and he was raised to meet the requirements of righteousness for us. NRS 25 who was handed over to death for our trespasses and was raised for our justification.
