Romans 10:1 Brethren, my hertes desyre & prayer to God for Israelis, þt they myght be saued. Romans 10:2 For I beare them recorde, that they haue a feruent mynde to God warde, but not according to knowledge. Romans 10:3 For they beynge ignoraunt of Goddes ryghtewesnes, and goynge aboute to stablysshe theyr awne ryghtewesnes, haue not bene obedient vnto the ryghtewesnes of God. Romans 10:4 For Christ is the fulfyllyng of þe lawe, to iustyfye all that beleue.
The Scripture sheweth the difference betwixt the righteousness of the Law, and this of faith,
Romans 10:5 For Moses wrytteth of the ryghtewesnes which cometh of the lawe, how þt þe man whych doth the thynges of the lawe, shall lyue therby. Romans 10:6 But the ryghtewesnes which cometh of fayth, speaketh on thys wyse: Saye not thou in thyne hert. who shall ascende into heauen (that is euen to fetch Chryst downe from aboue.) Romans 10:7 Other who shall descende into the depe? (that is euen to fetch vp Christ agayne from deeth) Romans 10:8 But what sayth he? The worde is nye the, euen in thy mouth and in thyne herte. Thys same is the worde of fayth, which we preache. Romans 10:9 For yf thou knowledge with thy mouth that Iesus is the Lorde, & beleue in thyne hert, that God raysed hym vp from deeth, thou shalt be safe. Romans 10:10 For to beleue wt the hert iustyfyeth: and to knowledge with the mouth, maketh a man safe.
and that all, both Jew and Gentile, that believe, shall not be confounded,
Romans 10:11 For the scrypture sayth: whosoeuer beleueth on hym, shall not be confounded. Romans 10:12 There is no difference betwene the Iewe and the Gentill. For one is Lord of all, which is ryche vnto all þt call vpon him. Romans 10:13 For whosoeuer doth call on the name of þe Lord, shalbe safe. Romans 10:14 How then shall they call on hym, on whom they haue not beleued? how shall they beleue on hym, of whom they haue not hearde? how shall they heare, without a preacher? Romans 10:15 And how shall they preache except they be sent? As it is written: how beautyfull are the fete of them which brynge tydynges of peace, and brynge tydynges of good thynges. Romans 10:16 But they haue not all obeyed to þe Gospell. For Esay sayth: Lorde, who hath beleued oure sayinges? Romans 10:17 So then fayth cometh by hearynge, and hearynge cometh by the worde of God.
and that the Gentiles shall receive the Word, and believe.
Romans 10:18 But I aske: haue they not herde? No dout, their sounde went out into all landes: and their wordes into the endes of the worlde.
Israel was not ignorant of these things.
Romans 10:19 But I demaunde, whether Israel dyd knowe or not? Fyrst Moses sayth: I will prouoke you to enuy, by them that are no people: by a folysihe nacion I wyll anger you. Romans 10:20 Esay after that, is bolde and sayeth: I am founde of them, that sought me not: I am manyfest vnto them, that asked not after me. Romans 10:21 But agaynst Israell he sayth: all daye longe haue I stretched forth my handes vnto a people þt beleueth not, but speaketh agaynst me.
