Romanos 10 Biblia Sacra Vulgata (VULGATE)

10 Fratres, voluntas quidem cordis mei, et obsecratio ad Deum, fit pro illis in salutem.

Testimonium enim perhibeo illis quod aemulationem Dei habent, sed non secundum scientiam.

Ignorantes enim justitiam Dei, et suam quaerentes statuere, justitiae Dei non sunt subjecti.

Finis enim legis, Christus, ad justitiam omni credenti.

Moyses enim scripsit, quoniam justitiam, quae ex lege est, qui fecerit homo, vivet in ea.

Quae autem ex fide est justitia, sic dicit: Ne dixeris in corde tuo: Quis ascendet in caelum? id est, Christum deducere:

aut, Quis descendet in abyssum? hoc est, Christum a mortuis revocare.

Sed quid dicit Scriptura? Prope est verbum in ore tuo, et in corde tuo: hoc est verbum fidei, quod praedicamus.

Quia si confitearis in ore tuo Dominum Jesum, et in corde tuo credideris quod Deus illum suscitavit a mortuis, salvus eris.

10 Corde enim creditur ad justitiam: ore autem confessio fit ad salutem.

11 Dicit enim Scriptura: Omnis qui credit in illum, non confundetur.

12 Non enim est distinctio Judaei 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 pacem, evangelizantium bona!

16 Sed non omnes obediunt 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? Et quidem in omnem terram exivit sonus eorum, et in fines orbis terrae verba eorum.

19 Sed dico: Numquid Israel non cognovit? Primus Moyses dicit: Ego ad aemulationem vos adducam in non gentem: in gentem insipientem, in iram vos mittam.

20 Isaias autem audet, et dicit: Inventus sum a non quaerentibus me: palam apparui iis qui me non interrogabant.

21 Ad Israel autem dicit: Tota die expandi manus meas ad populum non credentem, et contradicentem.

Romans 10 New International Version (NIV)

10 Brothers and sisters, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for the Israelites is that they may be saved. For I can testify about them that they are zealous for God, but their zeal is not based on knowledge. Since they did not know the righteousness of God and sought to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness. Christ is the culmination of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.

Moses writes this about the righteousness that is by the law: “The person who does these things will live by them.”[a] But the righteousness that is by faith says: “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’”[b] (that is, to bring Christ down) “or ‘Who will descend into the deep?’”[c] (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,”[d] that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim: If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. 11 As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.”[e] 12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, 13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”[f]

14 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15 And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”[g]

16 But not all the Israelites accepted the good news. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our message?”[h] 17 Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ. 18 But I ask: Did they not hear? Of course they did:

“Their voice has gone out into all the earth,
    their words to the ends of the world.”[i]

19 Again I ask: Did Israel not understand? First, Moses says,

“I will make you envious by those who are not a nation;
    I will make you angry by a nation that has no understanding.”[j]

20 And Isaiah boldly says,

“I was found by those who did not seek me;
    I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me.”[k]

21 But concerning Israel he says,

“All day long I have held out my hands
    to a disobedient and obstinate people.”[l]
