Romans 4:3 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

For what does the scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 4:3 Jas 2:24 appears to conflict with Paul’s statement. However, James combats the error of extremists who used the doctrine of justification through faith as a screen for moral self-determination. Paul discusses the subject of holiness in greater detail than does James and beginning with Rom 6 shows how justification through faith introduces one to the gift of a new life in Christ through the power of the holy Spirit.

Romans 4:9 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Does this blessedness[a] apply only to the circumcised, or to the uncircumcised as well? Now we assert that “faith was credited to Abraham as righteousness.”

Galatians 3:6-7 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Thus Abraham “believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”[a]

[b]Realize then that it is those who have faith who are children of Abraham.

Footnotes:

  1. 3:6 Abraham…righteousness: see Gn 15:6; Rom 4:3. The Galatians like Abraham heard with faith and experienced justification. This first argument forms the basis for the further scriptural evidence that follows.
  2. 3:7–9 Faith is what matters, for Abraham and the children of Abraham, in contrast to the claims of the opponents that circumcision and observance of the law are needed to bring the promised blessing of Gn 12:3; cf. Gn 18:18; Sir 44:21; Acts 3:25.
