1 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel
is, that they might be saved.
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.
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.)
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;
