Israelís Unbelief (continued)
10:1 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God
for Israel is, that they might be saved.
10:2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God,
but not according to knowledge.
10:3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and
going about to establish their own righteousness, have not
submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
10:4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to
every one that believeth.
10:5 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the
law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by
10:6 But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on
this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into
heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)
10:7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to
bring up Christ again from the dead.)
10:8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy
mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which
10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord
Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised
him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness;
and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
10:11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him
shall not be ashamed.
10:12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the
Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call
10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord
shall be saved.
10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not
believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they
have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it
is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach
the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias
saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?
10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the
word of God.
10:18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their
sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends
of the world.
10:19 But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith, I
will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and
by a foolish nation I will anger you.
10:20 But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of
them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that
asked not after me.
10:21 But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched
forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.
