4. Through the Righteousness Which Is out of Faith
30 What then shall we say? That the Gentiles who did not pursue righteousness have laid hold of righteousness, but a righteousness which is out of faith;
31 But aIsrael, pursuing a law of righteousness, did not attain to that law.
32 Why? Because they pursued it not aout of faith, but as it were out of works. They stumbled at the bstone of stumbling,
33 As it is written, a"Behold, I lay in Zion a stone of stumbling, a rock of offense, and he who believes on Him shall not be put to shame.''
1 Brothers, the good pleasure of my heart and my petition to God for them is for their asalvation.
2 For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to full knowledge;
3 For because they were ignorant of God's righteousness and sought to 1establish their own righteousness, they were not subject to the arighteousness of God.
