Romans 10:1 Brethren, the delight of my own heart and my supplication which [I address] to God for them is for salvation. Romans 10:2 For I bear them witness that they have zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. Romans 10:3 For they, being ignorant of God's righteousness, and seeking to establish their own [righteousness], have not submitted to the righteousness of God. Romans 10:4 For Christ is [the] end of law for righteousness to every one that believes.
The Scripture sheweth the difference betwixt the righteousness of the Law, and this of faith,
Romans 10:5 For Moses lays down in writing the righteousness which is of the law, The man who has practised those things shall live by them. Romans 10:6 But the righteousness of faith speaks thus: Do not say in thine heart, Who shall ascend to the heavens? that is, to bring Christ down; Romans 10:7 or, Who shall descend into the abyss? that is, to bring up Christ from among [the] dead. Romans 10:8 But what says it? The word is near thee, in thy mouth and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach: Romans 10:9 that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth Jesus as Lord, and shalt believe in thine heart that God has raised him from among [the] dead, thou shalt be saved. Romans 10:10 For with [the] heart is believed to righteousness; and with [the] mouth confession made to salvation.
and that all, both Jew and Gentile, that believe, shall not be confounded,
Romans 10:11 For the scripture says, No one believing on him shall be ashamed. Romans 10:12 For there is no difference of Jew and Greek; for the same Lord of all [is] rich towards all that call upon him. Romans 10:13 For every one whosoever, who shall call on the name of the Lord, shall be saved. Romans 10:14 How then shall they call upon him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe on him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without one who preaches? Romans 10:15 and how shall they preach unless they have been sent? according as it is written, How beautiful the feet of them that announce glad tidings of peace, of them that announce glad tidings of good things! Romans 10:16 But they have not all obeyed the glad tidings. For Esaias says, Lord, who has believed our report? Romans 10:17 So faith then [is] by a report, but the report by God's word.
and that the Gentiles shall receive the Word, and believe.
Romans 10:18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yea, surely, Their voice has gone out into all the earth, and their words to the extremities of the habitable world.
Israel was not ignorant of these things.
Romans 10:19 But I say, Has not Israel known? First, Moses says, *I* will provoke you to jealousy through [them that are] not a nation: through a nation without understanding I will anger you. Romans 10:20 But Esaias is very bold, and says, I have been found by those not seeking me; I have become manifest to those not inquiring after me. Romans 10:21 But unto Israel he says, All the day long I have stretched out my hands unto a people disobeying and opposing.
