Salvation Is Come To The Gentiles
Old Testament verses quoted by Paul
Comments on Romans 10
Leviticus 18:5 Ye shall therefore keep my
statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live
in them: I am the LORD.
1 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer
to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not
according to knowledge.
3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to
establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto
the righteousness of God.
4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that
5 For Moses describeth the righteousness which
is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall
live by them.
|Deuteronomy 30:12 It is not in heaven,
that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and
bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?
13 Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who
shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear
it, and do it?
|6 But the righteousness which is of faith
speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend
into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)
7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up
Christ again from the dead.)
|Deuteronomy 30:14 But the word is very
nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest
||8 But what saith it? The word is nigh
thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of
faith, which we preach;
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt
believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou
shalt be saved.
|Isaiah 49:23 And kings shall be thy
nursing fathers, and their queens thy nursing mothers: they shall bow
down to thee with their face toward the earth, and lick up the dust of
thy feet; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD: for they shall
not be ashamed that wait for me.
||10 For with the heart man believeth unto
righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be
|Joel 2:32 And it shall come to pass, that
whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be delivered:
for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord
hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.
||12 For there is no difference between the
Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that
call upon him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be
|(12) These Greeks were also Israelites.
There is no difference because doth are of the very same race and both
are now Christians.
(13) Many Christians quote Romans 10:13 without knowing that this is a
quote from Joel 2:23. To understand the New Testament we must first
understand the Old Testament.
Isaiah 52:7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him
that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth
good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion,
Thy God reigneth!
Isaiah 53:1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the
arm of the LORD revealed?
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 preacher?
15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written,
How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace,
and bring glad tidings of good things!
16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord,
who hath believed our report?
17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
|(14-17) These are either the words of a
questioner in the audience or a question that Paul asks and answers.
|Psalms19:4 Their line is gone out
through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In
them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went
into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.
|(18) For 2000 years almost all
evangelists and missionaries are of the White Christian Race. The
'children' of Abraham doing the works of Abraham. Look up "Europe" in
an old dictionary. The word means "Land of the White people."
|Deuteromy 32:21 They have moved me to
jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger
with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those
which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a
||19 But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith,
I will provoke
you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I
will anger you.
|Isaiah 65 1 I am sought of them that
asked not for me; I am found of them that sought me not: I
said, Behold me, behold me, unto a nation that was not called by my
||20 But Esaias is very bold, and saith,
I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto
them that asked not after me.
|2 I have spread out my hands all the
day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not
good, after their own thoughts;
||21 But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my
hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.
