1 My brethren, (it is) the wish of my heart, and my prayer to Aloha concerning them, that they may be saved.
2 For I testify of them that they have zeal for Aloha, but not in knowledge.
3 But the righteousness of Aloha they know not, but seek the righteousness of themselves to establish, and on this account to the righteousness of Aloha they have not become subject.
4 For the end of the law is the Meshiha unto righteousness in all who believe in him.
5 FOR Musha thus describeth the righteousness which is of the law, that he who doeth these things shall live by them.
6 But the righteousness which is by faith thus speaketh, Say not in thy heart, Who shall ascend into heaven, And bring down the Meshiha?
7 And who shall descend into the deep of Sheul, And bring up the Meshiha from among the dead?
8 But what saith it? Nigh thee is the word of thy mouth and of thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach.
9 And if thou wilt confess with thy mouth our Lord Jeshu, and wilt believe with thy heart that Aloha hath raised him from among the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For the heart which believeth in him is justified, and the mouth which confesseth him is saved.
11 For the scripture saith, that every one who believeth in him shall not be ashamed.
12 And in this he hath not distinguished nor the Jihudoya nor the Aramoya; for one is the Lord of them all, who is rich toward every one who calleth on him.
13 For every one who shall invoke the name of the Lord shall be saved.
14 How then shall they invoke him in whom they have not believed? Or how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? Or how shall they hear without a preacher?
15 Or how shall they preach if they are not sent? As it is written, How beautiful the feet of them who evangelize peace, And who evangelize good things!
16 But all of them have not obeyed the preaching of the gospel: for Eshaia saith, My Lord, who hath believed our voice?
17 Therefore faith is from the hearing of the ear, and the hearing of the ear from the word of Aloha.
18 But I say, Have they not heard? Behold, in all the earth their voice hath gone forth, And to the ends of the world their words!
19 But I say, Hath not Israel known? First, Musha thus speaketh, I will provoke you by a people who is not a people. And by the disobedient people will I make you angry.
20 But Eshaia is bold, and saith, I am beheld by them who have not sought me, And found of them who for me have not inquired.
21 But of Israel he saith, I have stretched out my hands all the day To a contentious and disobedient people.
