King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
2 For I bear them record 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 going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto 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 of the law, That the man which doeth 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 which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is , to bring Christ down from above:) 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 up 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 thine 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 unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto 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 , Whosoever 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 unto 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,
