Romans 4:14

Context
NET ©

For if they become heirs by the law, faith is empty and the promise is nullified. 1 

NIV ©

For if those who live by law are heirs, faith has no value and the promise is worthless,

NASB ©

For if those who are of the Law are heirs, faith is made void and the promise is nullified;

NLT ©

So if you claim that God’s promise is for those who obey God’s law and think they are "good enough" in God’s sight, then you are saying that faith is useless. And in that case, the promise is also meaningless.

MSG ©

If those who get what God gives them only get it by doing everything they are told to do and filling out all the right forms properly signed, that eliminates personal trust completely and turns the promise into an ironclad [contract]! That's not a holy promise; that's a business deal.

BBE ©

For if they who are of the law are the people who get the heritage, then faith is made of no use, and the word of God has no power;

NRSV ©

If it is the adherents of the law who are to be the heirs, faith is null and the promise is void.

NKJV ©

For if those who are of the law are heirs, faith is made void and the promise made of no effect,
