10 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 a zeal for God, but not in accordance with knowledge.3 For not knowing about God’s righteousness and seeking to establish their own, they did not subject themselves to the righteousness of God.4 For Christ is the [a]end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.
5 For Moses writes that the man who practices the righteousness which is [b]based on law shall live [c]by that righteousness.6 But the righteousness [d]based on faith speaks as follows: “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’ (that is, to bring Christ down),7 or ‘Who will descend into theabyss?’ (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).”8 But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”—that is, the word of faith which we are preaching,9 [e]that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;10 for with the heart a person believes, [f]resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, [g]resulting in salvation.
