“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.”
King James Version (KJV)
10:3 For they being ignorant of the righteousness of God - Of the method God has established for the justification of a sinner. And seeking to establish their own righteousness - Their own method of acceptance with God. Have not submitted to the righteousness of God - The way of justification which he hath fixed.
Ro 10:3 Being ignorant of God's righteousness. It is now shown that their zeal was "not according to knowledge" (Ro 10:2). Going about to establish their own righteousness. They had no knowledge of God's plan of righteousness, righteousness by believing upon Christ, but rejecting it they sought a righteousness of their own, of works, secured by keeping the law, and by obeying the traditions of men (Mr 7:7,8). Have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. On the other hand, they refused to submit to God's righteousness through faith.
