Do we then nullify the law through faith? Absolutely not! Instead we uphold the law.
But to the one who does not work, but believes in the one who declares the ungodly righteous, his faith is credited as righteousness.
Is this blessedness then for the circumcision or also for the uncircumcision? For we say, "faith was credited to Abraham as righteousness."
