Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
So then those who are of faith are blessed with Abraham, the believer.
And he believed the LORD, and he counted it to him for righteousness.
For what does the scripture say? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.
Why? Because they followed it not by faith but, as it were, by the works (of the law); therefore, they stumbled on the stumblingstone;
And that the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness, and he was called the Friend of God.
Even as David also describes the blessedness of the man unto whom God doth attribute righteousness without works,
2 Corinthians 5:19
for certainly God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them and having placed in us the word of reconciliation.
