Rm3:28For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from observing the law. ..... 4:1For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from observing the law. 4:1What then shall we say that Abraham, our forefather, discovered in this matter? 2If, in fact, Abraham was justified by works, he had something to boast about--but not before God. 3What does the Scripture say? "Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness." 4Now when a man works, his wages are not credited to him as a gift, but as an obligation. 5However, to the man who does not work but trusts God who justifies the wicked, his faith is credited as righteousness. 6David says the same thing when he speaks of the blessedness of the man to whom God credits righteousness apart from works:

    7“Blessed are they
       whose transgressions are forgiven,
       whose sins are covered.

    8Blessed is the man
       whose sin the Lord will never count against him."
(Psa32:1-2) - NIV
