The same Greek term Logizomai is translated “counteth” “counted” “reckoned” “imputed” “imputeth” in Romans 4: Rom. 4:3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted [Greek λογιζομαι] unto him for righteousness. 4 Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned [Greek λογιζομαι] of grace, but of debt. 5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted [Greek λογιζομαι] for righteousness. 6 Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth [Greek λογιζομαι] righteousness without works, 8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute [Greek λογιζομαι] sin. 9 ¶ Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned [Greek λογιζομαι] to Abraham for righteousness. 10 How was it then reckoned? [Greek λογιζομαι] when he was in circumcision, or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision. 11 And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed [Greek λογιζομαι] unto them also: 22 And therefore it was imputed [Greek λογιζομαι] to him for righteousness. 23 ¶ Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed [Greek λογιζομαι] to him; 24 But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, [Greek λογιζομαι] if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead; 1. As you can clearly and easily see the Same Greek term is translated “imputed..imputeth…impute….counted..reckoned 2. Abraham’s faith is said to be both “counted” (v. 3) and “reckoned” (v. 9) demonstrating there is no difference between being “counted” and “reckoned.” 3. The faith that is “counted” for righteousness (v. 3) is also said to be “reckoned” by grace (v. 4) 4. Abraham’s faith is also said to be “imputed” (vv. 20-22) as well as “reckoned” and “counted” (vv. 3,4,9) demonstrating there is no difference between “imputed” and “reckoned” and “counted.” 5. Verse 5 is said to be further explained by verse 6 (“EVEN AS”) showing that his faith is “counted” for righteousness is one and the same as righteousness is imputed to the one believing. The reason that both faith and righteousness are both “counted…reckoned…imputed” is because the kind of faith being described has the righteousness of Christ for its only object. Abraham believed in the gospel of Christ in the UR of the Chaldees when it was preached to him by God (Gal. 3:6-8 with Gen. 12:1-3) before he left for Haran (“had said” – Gen. 12:1). Paul explicitly states that the gospel of the promised “seed” was understood by Abraham to be singular as in Christ and that God made this covenant agreement in Ur through the preaching of the gospel “IN CHRIST” 430 years prior to Moses: Gal. 3:16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect. Hence, both His faith and righteousness are IMPUTED to him because the faith has for its object the promise provision of God’s Righteousness found in the Person and works of Christ and that is precisely how Abraham’s faith and righteousness are directly applied to us: Rom. 4:20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; 21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. 22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness. 23 ¶ Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him;24 But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on himthat raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead; 25 Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification. 1. Note it is his faith that is IMPUTED for righteousness in Romans 4:20-22 [as the antecedent for "it" in verse 22 is faith in verses 20-21] just as it is our faith that is IMPUTED to us for righteousness because that faith has for its object the promised provision of God’s own righteousness found in the Person and works of Jesus Christ in Romans 4:24-25. 2. Hence, both our faith is counted/imputed for righteousness and righteousness is imputed to us because the faith that justifies has for its object the righteousness of God found in the promised provision of the gospel. All the prophets since the first prophet Abel preached faith in Christ receives remission of sins: Acts 10:43 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins. Gal. 3:6 ¶ Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted [Greek λογιζομαι] to him for righteousness. 7 Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. 8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. 9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham. Now compare the use of the same Greek term λογιζομαι Gal. 3:6 ¶ Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted [Greek λογιζομαι] to him for righteousness. Rom. 4:9 ¶ Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned [Greek λογιζομαι] Rom. 4:21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. 22 And therefore it[antecedent is faith in verse 20-21] was imputed [Greek λογιζομαι] to him for righteousness.
