Wesley's Notes for Romans 4:9
4:9 This happiness - Mentioned by Abraham and David. On the circumcision - Those that are circumcised only. Faith was imputed to Abraham for righteousness - This is fully consistent with our being justified, that is, pardoned and accepted by God upon our believing, for the sake of what Christ hath done and suffered. For though this, and this alone, be the meritorious cause of our acceptance with God, yet faith may be said to be imputed to us for righteousness, as it is the sole condition of our acceptance. We may observe here, forgiveness, not imputing sin, and imputing righteousness, are all one.
People's Bible Notes for Romans 4:9
Ro 4:9 [Cometh] this blessedness upon the circumcision [only]. The next question is, Who shall enjoy this blessing of forgiveness? Shall it be Jews only, or shall the uncircumcision also, the Gentiles, enjoy it? Abraham's faith was counted for righteousness; will this be true of all, both Jews and Gentiles?

Daren's comment on 2011-05-16 13:12:33:
Doubt the love of those who care, or be doubted along those lines, and we get some idea of how it must pain the Lord when we doubt anything He has to say to or about us. When I tell someone "no worries" that does't mean come back at me with some scraping, servile attempt to make up it.What! ya might as well call me a liar, like I didn't mean it when I said it's ok, drop it!
