Bible: Rom 4:3-8

4:3 For what does the scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited 1  to him as righteousness.” 2  4:4 Now to the one who works, his pay is not credited due to grace but due to obligation. 3  4:5 But to the one who does not work, but believes in the one who declares the ungodly righteous, 4  his faith is credited as righteousness.

4:6 So even David himself speaks regarding the blessedness of the man to whom God credits righteousness apart from works:

4:7Blessed 5  are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered;

4:8 blessed is the one 6  against whom the Lord will never count 7  sin.” 8
