15 And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, (A)“How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” 16 But (B)they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, (C)“Lord, who has believed what he has heard from us?” 17 So (D)faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.

18 But I ask, have they not heard? Indeed they have, for

(E)“Their voice has gone out (F)to all the earth,
    and their words to the ends of the world.”

19 But I ask, did Israel not understand? First Moses says,

(G)“I will (H)make you jealous of those who are not a nation;
    with a (I)foolish nation I will make you angry.”

20 Then Isaiah is so bold as to say,

(J)“I have been found by those who did not seek me;
    I have shown myself to those who did not ask for me.”

21 But of Israel he says, (K)“All day long I have held out my hands to a disobedient and contrary people.”
