The Webster Bible (WBT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they may be saved. 1 Brothers, my heart's desire and prayer to God for the Israelites is that they may be saved.
2 For I bear them testimony that they have a zeal of 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 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 every one that believeth. 4 Christ is the end of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.
5 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is by the law, That the man who doeth these 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 which is by faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thy heart, Who shall 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 shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring Christ again from the dead.) 7 "or 'Who will descend into the deep?' " (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).
8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, [even] 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 the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thy heart that God hath raised him from 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 man believeth to righteousness; and with the mouth confession is 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 saith, whoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 11 As the Scripture says, "Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame."
12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all, is rich to 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 whoever shall call upon 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 on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? 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, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring 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 gospel. For Isaiah saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? 16 But not all the Israelites accepted the good news. For Isaiah says, "Lord, who has believed our message?"
17 So then, faith [cometh] by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. 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? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words to the ends of the 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, Did not Israel know? First, Moses saith, I will provoke you to jealousy by [them that are] no people, [and] by a foolish nation 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 Isaiah is very bold, and saith, I was found by them that sought me not; I was made manifest to them that asked not 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 to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands to a disobedient and gainsaying people. 21 But concerning Israel he says, "All day long I have held out my hands to a disobedient and obstinate people."
