1 Fratres, voluntas quidem cordis mei et obsecratio ad Deum pro illis in salutem.
2 Testimonium enim perhibeo illis quod aemulationem Dei habent sed non secundum scientiam;
3 ignorantes enim Dei iustitiam et suam iustitiam quaerentes statuere, iustitiae Dei non sunt subiecti;
4 finis enim legis Christus ad iustitiam omni credenti.
5 Moyses enim scribit de iustitia, quae ex lege est: "Qui fecerit homo, vivet in eis".
6 Quae autem ex fide est iustitia, sic dicit: "Ne dixeris in corde tuo: Quis ascendet in caelum?", id est Christum deducere;
7 aut: "Quis descendet in abyssum? ", hoc est Christum ex mortuis revocare.
8 Sed quid dicit? "Prope te est verbum, in ore tuo et in corde tuo"; hoc est verbum fidei, quod praedicamus.
9 Quia si confitearis in ore tuo: "Dominum Iesum! ", et in corde tuo credideris quod Deus illum excitavit ex mortuis, salvus eris.
10 Corde enim creditur ad iustitiam, ore autem confessio fit in salutem.
11 Dicit enim Scriptura: "Omnis, qui credit in illo, non confundetur".
12 Non enim est distinctio Iudaei et Graeci, nam idem Dominus omnium, dives in omnes, qui invocant illum:
13 Omnis enim, quicumque invocaverit nomen Domini, salvus erit.
14 Quomodo ergo invocabunt, in quem non crediderunt? Aut quomodo credent ei, quem non audierunt? Quomodo autem audient sine praedicante?
15 Quomodo vero praedicabunt nisi mittantur? Sicut scriptum est: "Quam speciosi pedes evangelizantium bona".
16 Sed non omnes oboedierunt evangelio; Isaias enim dicit: "Domine, quis credidit auditui nostro?".
17 Ergo fides ex auditu, auditus autem per verbum Christi.
18 Sed dico: Numquid non audierunt? Quin immo, in omnem terram exiit sonus eorum, et in fines orbis terrae verba eorum.
19 Sed dico: Numquid Israel non cognovit? Primus Moyses dicit: "Ego ad aemulationem vos adducam per Non gentem: per gentem insipientem ad iram vos provocabo".
20 Isaias autem audet et dicit: "Inventus sum in non quaerentibus me; palam apparui his, qui me non interrogabant".
21 Ad Israel autem dicit: "Tota die expandi manus meas ad populum non credentem et contradicentem".
King James Version
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.
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.
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.
18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.
19 But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith, I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I will anger you.
20 But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me.
21 But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.
