Rm9:1I am speaking the truth in Christ--I am not lying; my conscience bears me witness [confirms it] in the Holy Spirit-- 2that I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart. 3For I could wish that I myself were accursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, my kinsmen according to the flesh [those of my own race]. 4They are Israelites, and to them belong the adoption [as sons], the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises. 5To them belong the patriarchs, and from their race, according to the flesh [human ancestry], is the Christ who is God over all, blessed [praised] forever. Amen. - ESV

Rm10:1Brothers, my heart's desire and prayer to God for them [the Israelites] is that they may be saved. 2I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to [based on] knowledge. 3For, being ignorant of [not knowing] the righteousness that comes from God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God's righteousness. 4For Christ is the end of the law for [that there may be] righteousness to [for] everyone who believes. - ESV
