And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, How beautiful are the feet of those who announce the good news.a16
But everyone hasn't obeyed the good news. As Isaiah says, Lord, who has had faith in our message?b17
So, faith comes from listening, but it's listening by means of Christ's message.
But I ask you, didn't they hear it? Definitely! Their voice has gone out into the entire earth, and their message has gone out to the corners of the inhabited world.c19
But I ask you again, didn't Israel understand? First, Moses says, I will make you jealous of those who aren't a people, of a people without understanding.d20
And Isaiah even dares to say, I was found by those who didn't look for me; I revealed myself to those who didn't ask for me.e21
But he says about Israel, All day long I stretched out my hands to a disobedient and contrary people.f
