Romans 10:1-21

1 Brothers, truly my heart's desire and my supplication to God for Israel is for salvation. 2 For I testify to them that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. 3 For not understanding the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, they did not submit to the righteousness of God. 4 For Christ is the end of law for righteousness, to every man who believes. 5 For Moses writes in the righteousness from the law, that the man that does them will live in them. 6 But the righteousness from faith says thus: Thou should not say in thy heart, Who will ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down) 7 or, Who will descend into the abyss? (That is, to bring Christ up from the dead). 8 But what does it say? The word is near thee, in thy mouth and in thy heart, that is, the word of faith that we preach: 9 that if thou will confess with thy mouth, Lord Jesus, and will believe in thy heart that God raised him from the dead, thou will be saved. 10 For a man believes in the heart for righteousness, and he confesses with the mouth for salvation. 11 For the scripture says, Every man who believes in him will not be shamed. 12 For there is no distinction of a Jew and also of a Greek, for the same Lord is of all men, being rich toward all those who call upon him. 13 For every man, whoever may call upon the name of Lord will be saved. 14 How then will they call on whom they have not believed? And how will they believe of whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without preaching? 15 And how will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of those who proclaim good news of peace, of those who proclaim good news of good things. 16 But not all were obedient to the good-news, for Isaiah says, Lord, who has believed our report? 17 So faith is from hearing, and hearing by the word of God. 18 But I say, did they, no, not hear? Rather, Their voice went forth into all the earth, and their sayings to the limits of the inhabited world. 19 But I say, did Israel, no, not know? First Moses says, I will provoke you to jealousy toward a non-nation. Toward a foolish nation, I will make you angry. 20 And Isaiah is very bold and says, I was found by those not seeking me. I became manifest to those not asking for me. 21 But to Israel he says, The whole day I stretched forth my hands to a disobedient and rebellious people.

Romans 5:1-21

1 Therefore having been made righteous from faith, we have peace toward God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom also we have access by faith for this grace in which we stand, and we take pride in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only so, but we also take pride in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance, 4 and perseverance, character, and character, hope. 5 And hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit that was given to us. 6 For while we were yet weak, in due time Christ died for the impious. 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will some man die, indeed perhaps for the good man some man would even dare to die. 8 But God commends his love toward us, that, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, now having been made righteous by his blood, we will be saved from the wrath through him. 10 For if, while being enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, much more having been reconciled we will be saved by his life. 11 And not only so, but also taking pride in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation. 12 Because of this, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, so also death passed to all men, in that all sinned. 13 For until law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over those who did not sin in the likeness of Adam's transgression, who is a type of the coming man. 15 But in this way also, the gift is not as the transgression. For if by the trespass of the one man the many died, much more the grace of God, and the gift in grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, abounded for the many. 16 And the gift is not as through one man who sinned, for indeed the judgment from one man was for condemnation, but the gift from many offenses is for righteousness. 17 For if, by the offense of the one man, death reigned through the one man, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ. 18 So then, as through an offense of one man was for condemnation for all men, so also through a righteousness of one man was for justification of life for all men. 19 For as through the one man's disobedience the many were led sinful, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be led righteous. 20 And the law entered so that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace was more abundant, 21 so that, as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign, through righteousness, for eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Galatians 2:16-17

16 knowing that a man is not made righteous from works of law, instead through faith of Jesus Christ. And we believed in Christ Jesus, so that we might be made righteous from faith of Christ, and not from works of law, because no fles 17 But if, while seeking to be made righteous in Christ, we ourselves were also found sinful, then is Christ an aide of sin? May it not happen!

Galatians 3:24

24 So that the law became our schoolmaster for Christ, so that we might be made righteous from faith.
