(vv.  6-8)  David also bears testimony to the same doctrine, Abraham, the father of the Jewish race, was justified by faith,

(vv.  13-17)  And the promise that all the nations of the earth should be  blessed tn him, was made to him while he was in an uncircumcised state; and, therefore, if salvation were of the Jews alone, the  law, that was given after the promise, would make the promise  of no effect,

(vv.  18-22)    Description of Abraham's faith, and its effects,
