'Credited To Him' in the Bible
So if a man who is uncircumcised keeps the requirements of the Law, will not his uncircumcision be credited to him as [equivalent to] circumcision?
For what does the scripture say? "And Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him for righteousness."
Now, the reward is credited to him who does works, not as of grace but as a debt.
But to one who, not working [by the Law], trusts (believes fully) in Him Who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited to him as righteousness (the standing acceptable to God).
Now does this blessedness come to the circumcised alone, or also to the uncircumcised? For we say, "Abraham's faith was credited to him as righteousness."
How then was it credited to him? Was he circumcised at the time, or not? No, he was not circumcised but uncircumcised!
That is why his faith was credited to him as righteousness (right standing with God).
