Romans 10:1-3 Worldwide English (New Testament) (WE)
10 My brothers, with all my heart I want the Jews to be saved. And I ask God to save them.
2 I can say this about them, they want very much to obey God. But they do not know the right way.
3 They did not know the way God makes people right with him. They tried to make themselves good people. So they did not obey God's way to become right with him.
Romans 10:1-3 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. 2 For I can testify about them that they are zealous for God, but their zeal is not based on knowledge. 3 Since they did not know the righteousness of God and sought to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness.
