Romans 4:13-17

NIV 13 It was not through the law that Abraham and his offspring received the promise that he would be heir of the world, but through the righteousness that comes by 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. NIV 14 For if those who depend on the law are heirs, faith means nothing and the promise is worthless, NRS 14 If it is the adherents of the law who are to be the heirs, faith is null and the promise is void. NIV 15 because the law brings wrath. And where there is no law there is no transgression. NRS 15 For the law brings wrath; but where there is no law, neither is there violation. NIV 16 Therefore, the promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham’s offspring—not only to those who are of the law but also to those who have the faith of Abraham. He is the father of us all. 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, NIV 17 As it is written: “I have made you a father of many nations.” He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed—the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not. 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.
