16 However, they (A)did not all heed the [a]good news; for Isaiah says, “(B)Lord, who has believed our report?” 17 So faith comes from (C)hearing, and hearing by (D)the word [b]of Christ.

18 But I say, surely they have never heard, have they? On the contrary:

(E)Their voice has gone out into all the earth,
And their words to the ends of the [c]world.”

19 But I say, surely Israel did not know, did they? First Moses says,

(F)I will (G)make you jealous with those who are not a nation,
With a foolish nation I will anger you.”

20 And Isaiah is very bold and says,

(H)I was found by those who did not seek Me,
I revealed Myself to those who did not ask for Me.”

21 But as for Israel, He says, “(I)I have spread out My hands all day long to a disobedient and obstinate people.”
