Romans 4:17 King James Version (KJV)

17 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.

Romans 4:17 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

17 This accords with the Tanakh, where it says, “I have appointed you to be a father to many nations.”[a] Avraham is our father in God’s sight because he trusted God as the one who gives life to the dead and calls nonexistent things into existence.
