Romans 10:1-4 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

10 Brethren, the will of mine heart and my beseeching is made to God for them into health.

But I bear witnessing to them [Forsooth I bear witnessing to them], that they have the love of God, but not after knowing.

For they not knowing God's rightwiseness [For they unknowing God's rightwiseness], and seeking to make steadfast their own rightwiseness, be not subject to the rightwiseness of God.

For the end of the law is Christ, to rightwiseness to each man that believeth.

Romans 10:1-4 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

The unfaithfulness of the Jews. Two kinds of righteousness.

10 Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they might be saved. For I can attest that they have a fervent heart for God, but not according to knowledge. For they are ignorant of the righteousness that is admitted before God, and go about to establish their own righteousness, and therefore give no heed to the righteousness that is of value before God. For Christ is the end of the law, to justify all who believe.

Romans 10:1-4 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

10 1 He handleth the effects of election, 3 that some refuse, and some embrace. 4 Christ, who is the end of the Law. 15 He showeth that Moses foretold the calling of the Gentiles,  20 and Isaiah the hardening of the Jews.

Brethren, [a]mine hearts desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.

For I bear them record that they have the zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.

[b]For they, [c]being ignorant of the righteousness of God, and going about to [d]establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves to the righteousness of God.

[e]For Christ is the [f]end of the Law for righteousness unto [g]everyone that believeth.

Footnotes:

  1. Romans 10:1 Purposing to set forth in the Jews an example of marvelous obstinacy, he useth an insinuation.
  2. Romans 10:3 The first entrance into the vocation unto salvation, is to renounce our own righteousness: the next is, to embrace that righteousness by faith, which God freely offereth us the Gospel.
  3. Romans 10:3 The ignorance of the Law which we ought to know, excuseth none before God, especially it excuseth not them that are of his household.
  4. Romans 10:3 Ignorance hath always pride joined with it.
  5. Romans 10:4 The proof: The Law itself hath respect unto Christ, that such as believe in him should be saved. Therefore the calling to salvation by the works of the law is vain and foolish, but Christ is offered for salvation to every believer.
  6. Romans 10:4 The end of the Law is to justify them that keep the Law: but seeing we do not observe the Law through the fault of our flesh, we attain not unto this end: but Christ salveth this disease, for he fulfilled the Law for us.
  7. Romans 10:4 Not only to the Jews, but also to the Gentiles.

Romans 10:1-4 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

10 Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. 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. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.

Romans 10:1-4 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.
