righteousness which is of faith.
ROM 9:31 But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness,
hath not attained to the law of righteousness.
ROM 9:32 Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were
by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone;
ROM 9:33 As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and
rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
ROM 10:1 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is,
that they might be saved.
ROM 10:2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not
according to knowledge.
