20 Senseless person! Are you willing to learn that faith without works is useless? 21 Wasn’t Abraham our father justified by works in offering Isaac his son on the altar? 22 You see that faith was active together with his works, and by works, faith was made complete,(A) 23 and the Scripture was fulfilled that says, Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,[a](B) and he was called God’s friend.(C) 24 You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone. 25 In the same way, wasn’t Rahab the prostitute also justified by works in receiving the messengers and sending them out by a different route?(D) 26 For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.
