16 Therefore it is of faith that it might be (A)according to grace, (B)so that the promise might be [a]sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, (C)who is the father of us all 17 (as it is written, (D)“I have made you a father of many nations”) in the presence of Him whom he believed—God, (E)who gives life to the dead and calls those (F)things which do not exist as though they did; 18 who, contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, (G)“So shall your descendants be.” 19 And not being weak in faith, (H)he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), (I)and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. 20 He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, 21 and being fully convinced that what He had promised (J)He was also able to perform. 22 And therefore (K)“it was accounted to him for righteousness.”

23 Now (L)it was not written for his sake alone that it was imputed to him, 24 but also for us. It shall be imputed to us who believe (M)in Him who raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead, 25 (N)who was delivered up because of our offenses, and (O)was raised because of our justification.
