Then he believed

; and He reckoned
it to him as righteousness
Then Abram believed in (affirmed, trusted in, relied on, remained steadfast to) the L
; and He counted (credited) it to him
as righteousness (doing right in regard to God and man). [Rom 4:3, 18-22; Gal 3:6; James 2:23]
Amplified 2015 Translator's Notes:
Literal renderings, alternate translations or explanations.
This was crucial to God's plan of salvation, as can be seen in Rom 4. There was simply no way that anyone except Christ could ever be sufficiently righteous to meet God's standards and avoid condemnation. Having faith in God and placing one's trust in Him was not in itself something that could be a substitute for perfect righteousness, but God graciously determined to accept faith as an equivalent for that righteousness nonetheless. So in a sense, Abraham--and all believers since him, who are his spiritual descendants--received righteousness on credit, and the bill for that righteousness was paid by the death of Christ on the cross.
