1 G5101 What G3767 then G2046 will we say G11 that Abraham, G2257 our G3962 forefather, G2147 has found G2596 according to G4561 the flesh?
2 G1063 For G1487 if G11 Abraham G1344 was justified G1537 by G2041 works, G2192 he has G2745 something to boast G235 about, but G3756 not G4314 toward G2316 God.
3 G1063 For G5101 what G1161 does the Scripture G3004 say? G11 "Abraham G4100 believed G2316 God, G2532 and G3049 it was accounted G846 to him G1519 for G1343 righteousness."
4 G1161 Now G2038 to him who works, G3408 the reward G3049 is G3756 not G3049 counted G2596 as G5485 grace, G235 but G2596 as G3783 something owed.
5 G1161 But G3361 to him who doesn't G2038 work, G1161 but G4100 believes G1909 in G1344 him who justifies G765 the ungodly, G846 his G4102 faith G3049 is accounted G1519 for G1343 righteousness.
6 G2509 Even as G1138 David G2532 also G3004 pronounces G3108 blessing G444 on the man G3739 to whom G2316 God G3049 counts G1343 righteousness G5565 apart G2041 from works,
7 G3107 "Blessed G3739 are they whose G458 iniquities G863 are forgiven, G2532 G3739 whose G266 sins G1943 are covered.
8 G3107 Blessed G435 is the man G3739 whom G2962 the Lord G3049 will G3756 by G3361 no G3049 means charge G266 with sin."
9 G3778 Is this G3108 blessing G3767 then G1909 pronounced on G4061 the circumcised, G2228 or G1909 on G203 the uncircumcised G2532 also? G1063 For G3004 we say G3754 that G4102 faith G3049 was accounted G11 to Abraham G1519 for G1343 righteousness.
10 G4459 How G3767 then G3049 was it G3049 counted? G5607 When he was G1722 in G4061 circumcision, G2228 or G1722 in G203 uncircumcision? G3756 Not G1722 in G4061 circumcision, G235 but G1722 in G203 uncircumcision.
11 G2532 He G2983 received G4592 the sign G4061 of circumcision, G4973 a seal G1343 of the righteousness G4102 of the faith G1722 which G1722 he had while he was in G203 uncircumcision, G1519 that G846 he G1511 might be G3962 the father G3956 of all G4100 those who believe, G1223 though they might be G203 in uncircumcision, G1519 that G1343 righteousness G2532 might also G3049 be accounted G846 to them.
12 G2532 He G3962 is the father G4061 of circumcision G3756 to those who not G3440 only G3588 are G1537 of G4061 the circumcision, G235 but G4748 who G2532 also G4748 walk G2487 in the steps G3962 of G4102 that faith G3962 of G2257 our G3962 father G11 Abraham, G1722 which G203 he had in uncircumcision.
13 G1063 For G1860 the promise G11 to Abraham G2228 and G4690 to G846 his G4690 seed G846 that he G1511 should be G2818 heir G2889 of the world G3756 wasn't G1223 through G3551 the law, G235 but G1223 through G1343 the righteousness G4102 of faith.
14 G1063 For G1487 if G3588 those who are G1537 of G3551 the law G2818 are heirs, G4102 faith G2758 is made void, G2532 and G1860 the promise G2673 is made of no effect.
15 G1063 For G3551 the law G2716 works G3709 wrath, G1063 for G3757 where G2076 there is G3756 no G3551 law, G3761 neither G3847 is there disobedience.
16 G1223 For G5124 this G1537 cause it is of G4102 faith, G2443 that G2596 it may be according G5485 to grace, G1519 to the end G1860 that the promise G1511 may be G949 sure G3956 to all G4690 the seed, G3756 not G3588 to that G3440 only G1537 which is of G3551 the law, G235 but G3588 to that G2532 also G1537 which is of G4102 the faith G11 of Abraham, G3739 who G2076 is G3962 the father G2257 of us G3956 all.
17 G3754 G2531 As G1125 it is written, G5087 "I have made G4571 you G3962 a father G4183 of many G1484 nations." G2713 This is in the presence G3739 of him whom G4100 he believed: G2316 God, G2227 who gives life G3498 to the dead, G2532 and G2564 calls G5607 the things that are G3361 not, G5613 as G5607 though they were.
18 G3739 Who G1909 in G1680 hope G4100 believed G3844 against G1680 hope, G1519 to the end that G846 he G1096 might become G3962 a father G4183 of many G1484 nations, G2596 according to G2046 that which had been spoken, G3779 "So G2071 will G4675 your G4690 seed G2071 be."
19 G2532 G3361 Without G770 being G770 weakened G4102 in faith, G3361 he didn't G2657 consider G1438 his own G4983 body, G2235 already G3499 having been worn out, G4225 (he being about G1541 a hundred years old), G2532 and G3500 the deadness G3388 of G4564 Sarah's G5225 womb.
20 G1519 Yet, looking to G1860 the promise G2316 of God, G3756 he didn't G1252 waver G570 through unbelief, G235 but G1743 grew strong G4102 through faith, G1325 giving G1391 glory G2316 to God,
21 G2532 and G4135 being fully assured G3754 that G3739 what G1861 he had promised, G2076 he was G2532 also G1415 able G4160 to perform.
23 G1161 Now G1125 it was G3756 not G1125 written G3754 that G3049 it was accounted G846 to him G1223 for G846 his G1223 sake G3440 alone,
24 G235 but G1223 for G2248 our sake G2532 also, G3739 to whom G3195 it will G3049 be accounted, G3588 who G4100 believe G1909 in G1453 him who raised G2424 Jesus, G2257 our G2962 Lord, G1537 from G3498 the dead,
