1 Brothers! my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel for salvation.
2 For I testify to them that they have a zeal for God, but not for reason.
3 For, not understanding the righteousness of God, and striving to establish their own righteousness, they did not submit to the righteousness of God,
4 because the end of the law is Christ, to the righteousness of everyone who believes.
5 Moses writes about the righteousness of the law: the man who does it will live by him.
6 But righteousness from faith says this: Do not say in your heart, Who will ascend into heaven? that is, to bring Christ down.
7 Or who will descend into the abyss? that is, to raise Christ from the dead.
8 But what does Scripture say? The word is close to you, in your mouth and in your heart, that is, the word of faith which we preach.
9 For if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved,
10 because with the heart they believe unto righteousness, but with the mouth they confess unto salvation.
11 For the Scripture says, whoever believes in Him will not be put to shame.
12 There is no difference here between Jew and Greek, for the Lord is one among all, rich to all who call upon him.
13 For whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
14 But how can we call on [Him] in whom they did not believe? how to believe [in] [That], about Whom they have not heard? how to hear without a preacher?
15 And how can they preach unless they are sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of those who bring the gospel of peace, those who proclaim good things!
16 But not everyone obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says: Lord! who believed what they heard from us?
17 So faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
18 But I ask: Have they not heard? On the contrary, their voice went through all the earth, and their words to the ends of the world.
19 Again I ask: Did Israel not know? But the first Moses says: I will make you jealous of a people that is not a people; I will irritate you with a foolish people.
20 But Isaiah boldly says: Those who did not seek me found me; I revealed myself to those who did not ask about Me.
21 But he says of Israel, All day long I stretched out my hands to a disobedient and stubborn people.
