Title: Romains 4 et Genèse 17

Abstract :
The article is an attempt to show that, thanks to the two citations of Gn 15,6 and Ps 31[32],1-2 in Rm 4,2.7-8, Paul gives his opinion indirectly but nevertheless clearly on the injunctions of Gen 17,10-14. Those citations form a gezerah shawah (= GS), which goes along with the standards of the technique fixed by the rabbis later on and allows Paul to interpret the role of the circumcision in Gn 17,10-14 originally and paradoxically.
