Romans Chapter 10:1-7

For, being ignorant of the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God's righteousness.

Romans 10:1-7
1
Brothers, my heart's desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved.
2
For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge.
3
For, being ignorant of the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God's righteousness.
4
For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.
5
For Moses writes about the righteousness that is based on the law, that the person who does the commandments shall live by them.

“or ‘Who will descend into the abyss?’” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).
