MNT(i) 1 What then shall we say of Abraham, our ancestor in the flesh? 2 For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to be proud of, but not before God. 3 For what does Scripture say? And Abraham believed God, and it was set down to his account as righteousness. 4 Now if a man earn his pay by his work, it is not counted to him as a favor, but it is paid him as a debt; 5 but a man who does not "work," but believes in him who justifies the ungodly, has his faith imputed to him for righteousness. 6 Just as David also speaks of the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from actions. 7 Blessed he says are they whose iniquities have been forgiven, And whose sins have been covered. 8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.
