10:1 Achim (Brethren), my heart's desire and tefillah to Elohim (אלהים) for Yisrael is, that they might be saved.
10:2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of Elohim (אלהים), but not according to knowledge.
10:3 For they being ignorant of Elohim (אלהים)'s tzedakah, and going about to establish their own tzedakah, have not submitted themselves to the tzedakah of Elohim (אלהים).
10:4 For the goal (purpose, objective, telos) at which the Torah aims is towards the Mashiach who offers tzedakah (righteouness) to every one that believes.
10:5 For Mosheh describes the tzedakah which is of the Torah, That the man which does those things shall live by them.
10:6 But the tzedakah which is of faith speaks on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring ha Mashiach down [from above]:)
10:7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up ha Mashiach again from the dead.)
10:8 But what said it? The word is near you, [even] in your mouth, and in your heart: that is, the word of faith, which we proclaim;
10:9 That if you shall 1confess with your mouth Adonay Yehoshua (יהושע), and shall 2believe in thine heart that Elohim (אלהים) has raised him from the dead, 3thou shall be saved.
10:10 For with the heart man believes to tzedakah; and with the mouth confession is made to salvation.
10:11 For the scripture said:
Whosoever believes on Him shall not be ashamed.
10:12 For there is no difference between the Yehudi and the Greek: for the same Master over all is rich to all that call upon him.
10:13 For whosoever shall call upon The Name YHWH shall be saved. Yoel 2:32
10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a proclaimer?
10:15 And how shall they proclaim, except they be sent?
As it is written:
How beautiful are the feet of them that proclaim the good news of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
10:16 But they have not mishma'at (obedience) to the good news. For Yeshayahu said, Master, who has believed our report?
10:17 So then faith [comes] by hearing, and hearing by the word of Elohim (אלהים).
10:18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all ha eretz, and their words to the ends of the world.
10:19 But I say, Did not Yisrael know? First Mosheh said, I will provoke you to jealousy by [them that are] no people, [and] by a foolish nation I will anger you.
10:20 But Yeshayahu is very bold, and said, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest to them that asked not after me.
10:21 But to Yisrael he said, All day long I have stretched forth my hands to a disobedient and gainsaying people.
