Romans 4:17

A father of many nations (patera pollwn etnwn).
Quotation from Genesis 17:5. Only true in the sense of spiritual children as already explained, father of believers in God.

Before him whom he believed even God (katenanti ou episteusen teou).
Incorporation of antecedent into the relative clause and attraction of the relative wi into ou. See Mark 11:2 for katenanti, "right in front of."

Calleth the things that are not as though they were (kalountov ta mh onta wv onta).
"Summons the non-existing as existing." Abraham's body was old and decrepit. God rejuvenated him and Sarah (Hebrews 11:19).
