Romim 10 – אגרת שאול אל הרומים י


1My brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to Elohim for Yisra’el is that they might be saved.  2For I can testify for them that there is in them a zeal for Elohim, but not according to the true knowledge.  3For they know not the tzedaka of Elohim, but seek to establish their own tzedaka, and because of this, they have not submitted themselves to the tzedaka of Elohim.  4For Mashi’akh is the goal at which the Torah aims, for tzedaka to everyone who trusts.  5For Moshe writes of the tzedaka of the Torah this way: “Whoever shall do these things shall live by them.”  6But the tzedaka which is of trust says this: “Do not say in your heart, ‘who has ascended to heaven and brought Mashi’akh down to earth?’”  7And “Who has descended into the abyss of She’ol and brought up Mashi’akh from the house of the dead?”  8But what does it say? “HaDavar is near to you, even in your mouth and in your heart;” that is D’var HaEmunah which we declare; 9so if you will confess with your mouth Adoneinu Yeshua and will trust in your heart that Elohim raised Him from the dead, you shall live.  10For the heart which trusts in Him shall be declared righteous, and the mouth that confesses Him shall be saved.  11For the scripture says, “Whoever trusts in Him shall not be ashamed.”

12And in this it does not discriminate between the Yehudim and the Arame’ans; for the same  יהוה  over all is rich to all who call upon Him.  13For whoever shall call on the Name of  יהוה  shall have life.  14How then can they call on Him in whom they have not trusted? Or how can they trust in Him of whom they have never heard? Or how can they hear without a herald?  15Or how can they declare if they are not sent forth? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of the one who proclaims, and of those who declare good tidings!”  16But all have not heard the declaring of HaB’sorah. For Yesha-Yahu said, “Adonai, who has believed our report?”  17So then, Emunah comes by hearing, and hearing by D’var Elohim.  18But I say, have they not heard? “And behold their proclamation has gone out over all the earth, and their words to the ends of the world.”  19But I say, did not Yisra’el know? First Moshe spoke thus: “I will provoke you to jealousy by a people that are not my people, and I will make you angry by a stubborn people.”  20Then Yesha-Yahu dared to say, “I appeared to those who did not seek me, and was found by those who did not ask for me.”  21But to Yisra’el He said, “All the day long I have stretched out my hands to a quarrelsome and rebellious people.”
