Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Brothers, the desire of my heart and my prayer to God on behalf of them [is] for [their] salvation. 1 Brothers, my heart's desire and prayer to God for the Israelites is that they may be saved.
2 For I testify about them that they have a 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 ignoring the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not subject themselves 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 the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. 4 Christ is the end of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.
5 For Moses writes about the righteousness [that is] from the law: "The person who does [this] will live by it." 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 from faith speaks like this: "Do not say in your heart, 'Who will ascend into heaven?'" (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 will descend into the abyss?" (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). 7 "or 'Who will descend into the deep?' " (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).
8 But what does it say? "The word is near to you, in your mouth and in your heart" (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim), 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 you confess with your mouth "Jesus [is] Lord" and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will 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 one believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth one confesses, resulting in 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, "Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame." 11 As the Scripture says, "Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame."
12 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. 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 "everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved." 13 for, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
14 How then will they call upon [him] in whom they have not believed? And how will they believe [in him] about whom they have not heard? And how will they hear about [him] without one who preaches [to them]? 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 will they preach, unless they are sent? Just as it is written, "How timely [are] the feet of those who bring good news 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 not all have obeyed the good news, for Isaiah 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 Consequently, faith [comes] by hearing, and hearing through the word about Christ. 17 Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.
18 But I say, they have not heard, have they? On the contrary, "Their voice has gone out to all the earth, and their words to the ends of the inhabited 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, Israel did not know, did they? First, Moses says, "I will provoke you [to jealousy] by [those who are] not a nation; by a senseless nation I will provoke you [to anger]." 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 And Isaiah is very bold and says, "I was found by those who did not seek me; I became known to those who did not ask for 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 about Israel he says, "The whole day [long] I held out my hands to a disobedient and resistant people." 21 But concerning Israel he says, "All day long I have held out my hands to a disobedient and obstinate people."
