Romans 10:1–11

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 1end of the law for righteousness to beveryone who believes.

5 For Moses writes that the man who practices the righteousness which is 1based on law ashall live 2by that righteousness.

6 But athe righteousness 1based 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 1that 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, 1resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, 2resulting in salvation.

11 For the Scripture says, “aWhoever believes in Him will not be 1disappointed.”
