Romans 4

JUB 1 What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, has found? NIV 1 What then shall we say that Abraham, our forefather according to the flesh, discovered in this matter? JUB 2 For if Abraham were justified by works, he has <em>reason</em> to glory <em>in himself</em>, but not before God. NIV 2 If, in fact, Abraham was justified by works, he had something to boast about—but not before God. JUB 3 For what does the scripture say? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. NIV 3 What does Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” JUB 4 But unto him that works, the reward is not reckoned as grace, but as debt. NIV 4 Now to the one who works, wages are not credited as a gift but as an obligation. JUB 5 But to him that does not work, but believes in him that justifies the ungodly, the faith is counted as righteousness. NIV 5 However, to the one who does not work but trusts God who justifies the ungodly, their faith is credited as righteousness. JUB 6 Even as David also describes the blessedness of the man unto whom God doth attribute righteousness without works, NIV 6 David says the same thing when he speaks of the blessedness of the one to whom God credits righteousness apart from works: JUB 7 <em>saying</em>, Blessed <em>are</em> those whose iniquities are forgiven and whose sins are covered. NIV 7 “Blessed are those whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. JUB 8 Blessed <em>is</em> the man to whom the Lord does not impute sin. NIV 8 Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord will never count against them.” JUB 9 Is this blessedness, therefore, only upon the circumcision or also upon the uncircumcision? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham as righteousness. NIV 9 Is this blessedness only for the circumcised, or also for the uncircumcised? We have been saying that Abraham’s faith was credited to him as righteousness. JUB 10 How was it then reckoned? when he was in circumcision or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision. NIV 10 Under what circumstances was it credited? Was it after he was circumcised, or before? It was not after, but before! JUB 11 And he received the circumcision as <em>a</em> sign, as <em>a</em> seal of the righteousness of the faith which <em>he had, yet</em> being uncircumcised, that he might be the father of all the uncircumcised believers, that it might be counted unto them also as righteousness, NIV 11 And he received circumcision as a sign, a seal of the righteousness that he had by faith while he was still uncircumcised. So then, he is the father of all who believe but have not been circumcised, in order that righteousness might be credited to them. JUB 12 that <em>he be</em> the father of the circumcision: not only to those who are of the circumcision, but also unto those who walk in the steps of the faith that was in our father Abraham before he was circumcised. NIV 12 And he is then also the father of the circumcised who not only are circumcised but who also follow in the footsteps of the faith that our father Abraham had before he was circumcised. JUB 13 For the promise that he should be the heir of the world <em>was</em> not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. 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. JUB 14 For if those who are of the law <em>are</em> the heirs, faith is <em>in</em> vain, and the promise annulled, NIV 14 For if those who depend on the law are heirs, faith means nothing and the promise is worthless, JUB 15 because the law works wrath; for where there is no law, <em>there is</em> no rebellion either. NIV 15 because the law brings wrath. And where there is no law there is no transgression. JUB 16 Therefore by faith, that <em>it might be</em> by grace, to the end the promise might be sure to all <em>the</em> seed, not only to that which is of the law, but also to that which is of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all, 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. JUB 17 as it is written, As a father of many Gentiles have I placed thee before God, whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which are not as those that are. 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. JUB 18 Who believed to wait against <em>all</em> hope, that he might become the father of many Gentiles, according to that which had been spoken <em>unto him</em>, So shall thy seed be. NIV 18 Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” JUB 19 And he did not weaken in faith: he considered not his own body now dead when he was about one hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara’s womb; NIV 19 Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead—since he was about a hundred years old—and that Sarah’s womb was also dead. JUB 20 he doubted not the promise of God, with unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, NIV 20 Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, JUB 21 being fully persuaded that he was also powerful to do all that he had promised; NIV 21 being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised. JUB 22 therefore, <em>his faith</em> was also attributed unto him as righteousness. NIV 22 This is why “it was credited to him as righteousness.” JUB 23 Now it is not written for his sake alone that it was <em>so</em> reckoned to him, NIV 23 The words “it was credited to him” were written not for him alone, JUB 24 but for us also to whom it shall be <em>so</em> reckoned, that is, to those that believe in him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead, NIV 24 but also for us, to whom God will credit righteousness—for us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. JUB 25 who was delivered for our offenses and was raised again for our justification. NIV 25 He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.
