Bible: Romans 4:5-8

4:5 But to the one who does not work, but believes in the one who declares the ungodly righteous, 1  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 2  are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered;

4:8 blessed is the one 3  against whom the Lord will never count 4  sin.” 5
