imputed righteousness

Rom. 4:6, 11, 22

6 just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works:. . . . 11 And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had while still uncircumcised, that he might be the father of all those who believe, though they are uncircumcised, that righteousness might be imputed to them also, . . . . 22 And therefore "it was accounted to him for righteousness."
