Romans 10

CHAPTER 10

Deliverance Offered to Jews and Greeks

Brethren, indeed the good-pleasure, of the one of my heart, and the supplication, the one towards God for Israel is for deliverance. For I bear witness to them that [2zeal 3of God 1they have], but not according to full knowledge. For being ignorant of the thing of the righteousness of God, and [3their own 4righteousness 1seeking 2to establish], [3to the 4righteousness 5of God 1they did not 2submit]. [3is the end 1For 6of the law 2Christ 4for 5righteousness] to every one trusting. For Moses writes about the righteousness, the one of the law, that, The [2observing 3them 1man] shall live by them. But of the [2of belief 1righteousness] thus he says, You should not say in your heart, Who shall ascend unto the heaven? that is to say, [2Christ 1to lead] down; or, Who shall go down into the abyss? that is to say, [2Christ 3from 4the dead 1to lead]. But what does it say? [4near 5you 1The 2word 3is], in your mouth and in your heart; (that is to say the word of the belief which we proclaim;) that if you should acknowledge in your mouth the Lord Jesus, and should trust in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you shall be delivered. 10 For the heart trusts unto righteousness; and the mouth acknowledges to deliverance. 11 [4says 1For 2the 3scripture], Every one trusting upon him shall not be put to shame. 12 [3no 1For 2there is] difference [2of Jew 1both] and Greek; for the same Lord of all is being rich unto all the ones calling upon him. 13 For every one who ever should call upon the name of the Lord shall be delivered. 14 How then should they call unto whom they do not trust? And how shall they trust of whom they heard not? And how shall they hear separate from one proclaiming? 15 And how shall they proclaim if there should not be one sent? As it has been written, How beautiful the feet of the ones announcing good news of peace; of the ones announcing good news of good things. 16 But not all hearkened to the good news; for Isaiah says, O Lord, who trusted our report? 17 So the belief is from report, and the report through the word of God. 18 But I say, Did they not hear? Certainly, for [3unto all 4the 5earth 2went forth 1their knell], and [2went unto 3the 4ends 5of the 6habitable world 1their words]. 19 But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses says, I will provoke you to jealousy over that not a nation; by [2nation 1a senseless] I will provoke you to anger. 20 And Isaiah was very bold, and he says, I was found by the ones [3me 1not 2seeking]; [2apparent 1I became] to the ones [3for me 1not 2asking]. 21 But to Israel he says, The entire day I spread forth my hands to a people resisting persuasion and disputing.
