Bible: Romans 10:1-10

10:1 Brothers and sisters, 1  my heart’s desire and prayer to God on behalf of my fellow Israelites 2  is for their salvation. 10:2 For I can testify that they are zealous for God, 3  but their zeal is not in line with the truth. 4  10:3 For ignoring the righteousness that comes from God, and seeking instead to establish their own righteousness, they did not submit to God’s righteousness. 10:4 For Christ is the end of the law, with the result that there is righteousness for everyone who believes.

10:5 For Moses writes about the righteousness that is by the law: “The one who does these things will live by them.” 5  10:6 But the righteousness that is by faith says: “Do not say in your heart, 6 Who will ascend into heaven?’” 7  (that is, to bring Christ down) 10:7 orWho will descend into the abyss? 8  (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 9  (that is, the word of faith that we preach), 10:9 because if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord 10  and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10:10 For with the heart one believes and thus has righteousness 11  and with the mouth one confesses and thus has salvation. 12
