The Word of Faith Brings Salvation1 Brethren, my heart’s desire and my prayer to God for them is for their salvation. 2 For I testify about them that they have a a zeal for God, but not in accordance with knowledge. 3 For not knowing about b God’s righteousness and c seeking to establish their own, they did not subject themselves to the righteousness of God. 4 For d Christ is the ▼
▼ Or goalend of the law for righteousness to f everyone who believes. 5 For Moses writes that the man who practices the righteousness which is ▼
▼ Lit out of, frombased on law h shall live ▼
▼ Lit by itby that righteousness. 6 But j the righteousness ▼
▼ Lit out of, frombased on faith speaks as follows: l “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’ (that is, to bring Christ down), 7 or ‘Who will descend into the m abyss?’ (that is, to n bring Christ up from the dead).” 8 But what does it say? o “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”—that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, 9 ▼
▼ Or becausethat q if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and r believe in your heart that s God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; 10 for with the heart a person believes ▼
▼ Lit to righteousnessresulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses ▼
▼ Lit to salvationresulting in salvation. 11 For the Scripture says v “Whoever believes in Him will not be ▼
▼ Lit put to shamedisappointed.” 12 For x there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is y Lord of z all, abounding in riches for all who call on Him; 13 for aa “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.” 14 How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him ab whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without ac a preacher? 15 How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written ad “How beautiful are the feet of those who ▼
▼ Or preach the gospel, af bring good news of good things!” 16 However, they ag did not all heed the ▼
▼ Or gospelgood news; for Isaiah says ai “Lord, who has believed our report?” 17 So faith comes from aj hearing, and hearing by ak the word ▼
▼ Or concerning Christof Christ. 18 But I say, surely they have never heard, have they? Indeed they have; am “Their voice has gone out into all the earth,
And their words to the ends of the ▼
▼ Or inhabited earthworld.”
19 But I say, surely Israel did not know, did they? First Moses says, ao “I will ap make you jealous by that which is not a nation,
By a nation without understanding will I anger you.”
20 And Isaiah is very bold and says, aq “I was found by those who did not seek Me,
I became manifest to those who did not ask for Me.”
21 But as for Israel He says ar “All the day long I have stretched out My hands to a disobedient and obstinate people.”
