Abraham Faithful

Abraham Faithful

Nehemiah 9:8 (KJV)
[8] And foundest his heart faithful before thee, and madest a covenant with him to give the land of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Jebusites, and the Girgashites, to give it, I say, to his seed, and hast performed thy words; for thou art righteous:

Genesis 15:6 (KJV)
[6] And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.

So it’s based on faith and believe, nothing to do with works. Did Abraham failed before? Yes. Many times in fact when he went into his his handmaiden Hannah instead of Sarah his wife for the promised child. When he lied to the Egyptian Pharoah that his wife is his sister.

Nevertheless, it was faith and believe that brought Abraham right with God.
