'Accounted to Him' in the Bible
Therefore if the uncircumcised keep the righteous precepts of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be accounted to him for circumcision?
For what does the Scripture say? "Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness."
How then was it accounted to him? when he was in circumcision, or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision.
Wherefore also it was accounted to him for righteousness.
