Romans 4:1-6 (Weymouth New Testament)

View In My Bible
1 What then shall we say that Abraham, our earthly forefather, has gained? 2 For if he was held to be righteous on the ground of his actions, he has something to boast of; but not in the presence of God. 3 For what says the Scripture? "And Abraham believed God, and this was placed to his credit as righteousness." 4 But in the case of a man who works, pay is not reckoned a favour but a debt; 5 whereas in the case of a man who pleads no actions of his own, but simply believes in Him who declares the ungodly free from guilt, his faith is placed to his credit as righteousness. 6 In this way David also tells of the blessedness of the man to whose credit God places righteousness, apart from his actions.
