10:1 Brothers, my heart`s desire and my prayer to God is for Israel, that they may be saved.
10:2 For I testify about them that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge.
10:3 For being ignorant of God`s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, they didn`t subject themselves to the righteousness of God.
10:4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.
10:6 But the righteousness which is of faith says this, "Don`t say in your heart, `Who will ascend into heaven?` (that is, to bring Christ down);
10:7 or, `Who will descend into the abyss?` (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead.)"
10:8 But what does it say? "The word is near you, in your mouth, and in your heart;" that is, the word of faith, which we preach:
10:10 For with the heart, one believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
10:11 For the scripture says, "Whoever believes in him will not be put to shame."
10:12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, and is rich to all who call on him.
10:13 For, "Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved."
10:14 How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in him whom they have not heard? How will they hear without a preacher?
10:16 But they didn`t all listen to the glad news. For Isaiah says, "Lord, who has believed our report?"
10:19 But I ask, didn`t Israel know? First Moses says, "I will provoke you to jealousy with that which is no nation, With a nation void of understanding I will make you angry."
10:20 Isaiah is very bold, and says, "I was found by those who didn`t seek me. I was revealed to those who didn`t ask for me."
