The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 Brethren, the delight of my own heart and my supplication which [I address] to God for them is for salvation. 1 Brothers, my heart's desire and prayer to God for the Israelites is that they may be saved.
2 For I bear them witness that they have zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. 2 For I can testify about them that they are zealous for God, but their zeal is not based on knowledge.
3 For they, being ignorant of God's righteousness, and seeking to establish their own [righteousness], have not submitted to the righteousness of God. 3 Since they did not know the righteousness that comes from God and sought to establish their own, they did not submit to God's righteousness.
4 For Christ is [the] end of law for righteousness to every one that believes. 4 Christ is the end of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.
5 For Moses lays down in writing the righteousness which is of the law, The man who has practised those things shall live by them. 5 Moses describes in this way the righteousness that is by the law: "The man who does these things will live by them."
6 But the righteousness of faith speaks thus: Do not say in thine heart, Who shall ascend to the heavens? that is, to bring Christ down; 6 But the righteousness that is by faith says: "Do not say in your heart, 'Who will ascend into heaven?' " (that is, to bring Christ down)
7 or, Who shall descend into the abyss? that is, to bring up Christ from among [the] dead. 7 "or 'Who will descend into the deep?' " (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).
8 But what says it? The word is near thee, in thy mouth and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach: 8 But what does it say? "The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart," that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming:
9 that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth Jesus as Lord, and shalt believe in thine heart that God has raised him from among [the] dead, thou shalt be saved. 9 That 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.
10 For with [the] heart is believed to righteousness; and with [the] mouth confession made to salvation. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.
11 For the scripture says, No one believing on him shall be ashamed. 11 As the Scripture says, "Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame."
12 For there is no difference of Jew and Greek; for the same Lord of all [is] rich towards all that call upon him. 12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile--the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him,
13 For every one whosoever, who shall call on the name of the Lord, shall be saved. 13 for, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
14 How then shall they call upon him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe on him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without one who preaches? 14 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?
15 and how shall they preach unless they have been sent? according as it is written, How beautiful the feet of them that announce glad tidings of peace, of them that announce glad tidings of good things! 15 And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!"
16 But they have not all obeyed the glad tidings. For Esaias says, Lord, who has believed our report? 16 But not all the Israelites accepted the good news. For Isaiah says, "Lord, who has believed our message?"
17 So faith then [is] by a report, but the report by God's word. 17 Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.
18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yea, surely, Their voice has gone out into all the earth, and their words to the extremities of the habitable world. 18 But I ask: Did they not hear? Of course they did: "Their voice has gone out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world."
19 But I say, Has not Israel known? First, Moses says, *I* will provoke you to jealousy through [them that are] not a nation: through a nation without understanding I will anger you. 19 Again I ask: Did Israel not understand? First, Moses says, "I will make you envious by those who are not a nation; I will make you angry by a nation that has no understanding."
20 But Esaias is very bold, and says, I have been found by those not seeking me; I have become manifest to those not inquiring after me. 20 And Isaiah boldly says, "I was found by those who did not seek me; I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me."
21 But unto Israel he says, All the day long I have stretched out my hands unto a people disobeying and opposing. 21 But concerning Israel he says, "All day long I have held out my hands to a disobedient and obstinate people."
