10:5 For Moses describes the righteousness which is of the law, That the man who does those things will live by them.
10:6 But the righteousness which is of faith says thus, Don't say in your heart, Who will ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down:)
10:7 or, Who will descend into the abyss? (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead.)
10:8 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 preach:
10:9 that if you will confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and will believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

10:18 But I say, Is it the case that they have not heard? On the contrary, Their sound went out into all the earth, And their words to the ends of the world.
10:19 But I say, Did Israel not know? First Moses says, I will provoke you+ to jealousy with that which is no nation, With a nation void of understanding I will anger you+.
