Romans 4:13–25

13 For the promise, that he should be the pheir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. 14 For qif they which are of the law be heirs, faith is rmade void, and qthe promise made of none effect: 15 Because sthe law worketh wrath: for twhere no law is, uthere is no transgression. 16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be xby grace; yto the end the promise might be sure zto all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; awho is the father of us all, 17 (As it is written, bI have made thee a father of many nations,) ||before him whom he believed, even God, cwho quickeneth the dead, and calleth dthose things which be not as though they were. 18 Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations; according to that which was spoken, eSo shall thy seed be. 19 And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now fdead, gwhen he was about an hundred years old, neither yet hthe deadness of Sara’s womb: 20 He istaggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; 21 And kbeing fully persuaded that, what he had promised, lhe was able also to perform. 22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness. 23 Now mit was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him; 24 But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe non him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead; 25 oWho was delivered for our offences, and pwas raised again for our qjustification.
