NASB — Romans 10 — KJV

The Word of Faith Brings Salvation

1 Brethren, my heart’s desire and my prayer to God for them is for [their] salvation. 2 For I testify about them that they have aa zeal for God, but not in accordance with knowledge. 3 For not knowing about aGod’s righteousness and bseeking to establish their own, they did not subject themselves to the righteousness of God. 4 For aChrist is the Iend of the law for righteousness to beveryone who believes.

5 ¶ For Moses writes that the man who practices the righteousness which is Ibased on law ashall live IIby that righteousness. 6 But athe righteousness Ibased on faith speaks as follows: “bDO NOT SAY IN YOUR HEART, ‘WHO WILL ASCEND INTO HEAVEN?’ (that is, to bring Christ down), 7 or ‘WHO WILL DESCEND INTO THE aABYSS?’ (that is, to bbring Christ up from the dead).” 8 But what does it say? “aTHE WORD IS NEAR YOU, IN YOUR MOUTH AND IN YOUR HEART”—that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, 9 Ithat aif you confess with your mouth Jesus [as] Lord, and bbelieve in your heart that cGod raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; 10 for with the heart a person believes, Iresulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, IIresulting in salvation. 11 For the Scripture says, “aWHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE IDISAPPOINTED.” 12 For athere is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same [Lord] is bLord of call, abounding in riches for all who call on Him; 13 for “aWHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.”

14 ¶ How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him awhom they have not heard? And how will they hear without ba preacher? 15 How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, “aHOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO IbBRING GOOD NEWS OF GOOD THINGS!”

19 But I say, surely Israel did not know, did they? First Moses says,
  “aI WILL bMAKE YOU JEALOUS BY THAT WHICH IS NOT A NATION,
  BY A NATION WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING WILL I ANGER YOU.”
20 And Isaiah is very bold and says,
  “aI WAS FOUND BY THOSE WHO DID NOT SEEK ME,

21 But as for Israel He says, “aALL THE DAY LONG I HAVE STRETCHED OUT MY HANDS TO A DISOBEDIENT AND OBSTINATE PEOPLE.”

1 ¶ Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. 2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to 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. 4 For Christ [is] the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.

The Scripture sheweth the difference betwixt the righteousness of the Law, and this of faith,

5 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall 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]:) 7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again 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; 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. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

and that all, both Jew and Gentile, that believe, shall not be confounded,

11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 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. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall 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? 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! 16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? 17 So then faith [cometh] by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Israel was not ignorant of these things.
