for not knowing the righteousness of God, and their own righteousness seeking to establish, to the righteousness of God they did not submit.
For Christ is an end of law for righteousness to every one who is believing,
for Moses doth describe the righteousness that [is] of the law, that, `The man who did them shall live in them,'
and the righteousness of faith doth thus speak: `Thou mayest not say in thine heart, Who shall go up to the heaven,' that is, Christ to bring down?
or, `Who shall go down to the abyss,' that is, Christ out of the dead to bring up.
But what doth it say? `Nigh thee is the saying -- in thy mouth, and in thy heart:' that is, the saying of the faith, that we preach;
that if thou mayest confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and mayest believe in thy heart that God did raise him out of the dead, thou shalt be saved,
for with the heart doth [one] believe to righteousness, and with the mouth is confession made to salvation;
for the Writing saith, `Every one who is believing on him shall not be ashamed,'
for there is no difference between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord of all [is] rich to all those calling upon Him,
for every one -- whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, he shall be saved.'
