Romans 4:17-25 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
17 As it is written: "I have made you a father of many nations."a1 He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed--the God who gives life2 to the dead and calls3 things that are not4 as though they were. 18 Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations,5 just as it had been said to him, "So shall your offspring be."b6 19 Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead7--since he was about a hundred years old8--and that Sarah's womb was also dead.9 20 Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened10 in his faith and gave glory to God,11 21 being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.12 22 This is why "it was credited to him as righteousness."13 23 The words "it was credited to him" were written not for him alone, 24 but also for us,14 to whom God will credit righteousness--for us who believe in him15 who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead.16 25 He was delivered over to death for our sins17 and was raised to life for our justification.18
