    Clarke's Commentary on Romans 4:23

    Now it was not written for his sake alone - The fact of Abraham's believing and receiving salvation through that faith is not recorded as a mere circumstance in the patriarch's life, intended to do him honor: see Romans 4:24.

    Barnes' Notes on Romans 4:23

    Now it was not written - The record of this extraordinary faith was not made on his account only; but it was made to show the way in which men may be regarded and treated as righteous by God. If Abraham was so regarded and treated, then, on the same principle, all others may be. God has but one mode of justifying people.

    Imputed - Reckoned; accounted. He was regarded and treated as the friend of God.
