'Believed God' in the Bible
For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.
(As it has been written, That have set thee father of many nations,) over against him who believed God, making alive the dead, and calling things not being as being.
Now in response to the [proclamation of the] good news [about Christ], the Jews became [God's] enemies for the sake of you [Gentiles]. But concerning [God's] select people, these Jews became [God's] dearly loved ones for the sake of their forefathers [i.e, who believed God's promises regarding their descendants].
