Romans 4:13-15

The Promise Realized Through Faith

13 For 1the promise to Abraham and his offspring 2that he would be heir of the world did not come through the law but through the righteousness of faith.
14 3For if it is the adherents of the law who are to be the heirs, faith is null and the promise is void.
15 For 4the law brings wrath, but 5where there is no law 6there is no transgression.
