1Brethren,myheart'sdesireandprayertoGodforIsraelis , thatthey might be saved.2For I bearthemrecordthat they have a zeal of God,butnotaccording to knowledge.3For they being ignorant of God'srighteousness,and going about to establish their ownrighteousness,havenot submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.4ForChrist is the end of the lawforrighteousness to every one that believeth .
5ForMosesdescribeth the righteousnesswhich is of the law,That the man which doeth those things shall livebythem.6But the righteousness which is offaithspeaketh on this wise,Saynotinthineheart,Who shall ascendintoheaven? (that is , to bringChristdown from above:)
7Or,Who shall descendinto the deep? (that is , to bring upChristagainfrom the dead.)
8Butwhat saith it ? The wordisnighthee, even inthymouth,andinthyheart: that is , the word of faith,which we preach ;
9Thatif thou shalt confesswiththymouth the LordJesus,and shalt believeinthineheartthatGod hath raisedhimfrom the dead, thou shalt be saved .
10For with the heart man believethuntorighteousness;and with the mouth confession is madeuntosalvation.11For the scripturesaith , Whosoeverbelievethonhimshallnot be ashamed .
