Romans 10 :: New Living Translation (NLT)

toggle collapse

Tools specific to Rom 10:1

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 10:1

Dear brothers and sisters,[fn] the longing of my heart and my prayer to God is for the people of Israel to be saved.

Tools specific to Rom 10:2

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 10:2

I know what enthusiasm they have for God, but it is misdirected zeal.

Tools specific to Rom 10:3

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 10:3

For they don’t understand God’s way of making people right with himself. Refusing to accept God’s way, they cling to their own way of getting right with God by trying to keep the law.

Tools specific to Rom 10:4

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 10:4

For Christ has already accomplished the purpose for which the law was given.[fn] As a result, all who believe in him are made right with God.

Tools specific to Rom 10:5

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 10:5

For Moses writes that the law’s way of making a person right with God requires obedience to all of its commands.[fn]

Tools specific to Rom 10:6

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 10:6

But faith’s way of getting right with God says, “Don’t say in your heart, ‘Who will go up to heaven?’ (to bring Christ down to earth).

Tools specific to Rom 10:7

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 10:7

And don’t say, ‘Who will go down to the place of the dead?’ (to bring Christ back to life again).”

Tools specific to Rom 10:8

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 10:8

In fact, it says,
“The message is very close at hand;
it is on your lips and in your heart.”[fn]And that message is the very message about faith that we preach:

Tools specific to Rom 10:9

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 10:9

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

Tools specific to Rom 10:10

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 10:10

For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.

Tools specific to Rom 10:11

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 10:11

As the Scriptures tell us, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced.”[fn]

Tools specific to Rom 10:12

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 10:12

Jew and Gentile[fn] are the same in this respect. They have the same Lord, who gives generously to all who call on him.

Tools specific to Rom 10:13

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 10:13

For “Everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved.”[fn]

Tools specific to Rom 10:14

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 10:14

But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?

Tools specific to Rom 10:15

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 10:15

And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the Scriptures say, “How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news!”[fn]

Tools specific to Rom 10:16

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 10:16

But not everyone welcomes the Good News, for Isaiah the prophet said, “LORD, who has believed our message?”[fn]

Tools specific to Rom 10:17

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 10:17

So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ.

Tools specific to Rom 10:18

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 10:18

But I ask, have the people of Israel actually heard the message? Yes, they have:
“The message has gone throughout the earth,
and the words to all the world.”[fn]

Tools specific to Rom 10:19

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 10:19

But I ask, did the people of Israel really understand? Yes, they did, for even in the time of Moses, God said,
“I will rouse your jealousy through people who are not even a nation.
I will provoke your anger through the foolish Gentiles.”[fn]

Tools specific to Rom 10:20

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 10:20

And later Isaiah spoke boldly for God, saying,
“I was found by people who were not looking for me.
I showed myself to those who were not asking for me.”[fn]

Tools specific to Rom 10:21

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 10:21

But regarding Israel, God said,
“All day long I opened my arms to them,
but they were disobedient and rebellious.”[fn]
