For ignoring the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own,a they did not subject themselves to the righteousness of God.
For Christ [is the] end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.
For Moses writes about the righteousness [that is] from the law: "The person who does [this]b will live by it."cd6
But the righteousness from faith speaks like this: "Do not say in your heart,e 'Who will ascend into heaven?'"f (that is, to bring Christ down),
or "Who will descend into the abyss?"g (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).
But what does it say? "The word is near to you, in your mouth and in your heart"h (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim),
thati if you confess with your mouth "Jesus [is] Lord" and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
For with the heart one believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth one confesses, resulting in salvation.
For the scripture says, "Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame."j12
For [there] is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same [Lord] [is] Lord of all, who is rich to all who call upon him.
For "everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved."k
