Romans Chapter 10
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
10:5 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That
the man which doeth those things shall live by them.
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 we preach;
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
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 upon him.
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
