21 aWas not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up Isaac his son on the altar?

22 You see that afaith was working with his works, and 1as a result of the bworks, faith was 2perfected;

23 and the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “aAnd Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness,” and he was called bthe friend of God.

24 You see that a man is justified by works and not by faith alone.

25 In the same way, was not aRahab the harlot also justified by works bwhen she received the messengers and sent them out by another way?

26 For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also afaith without works is dead.
