10:12 For there is no distinction between Judean and Greek, because the same One is Master of all and is generous to all who call to him for help—

10:14 But how can they ask for help from someone they have not put their trust in? And how can they trust someone they haven’t heard of? And how will they hear if no one tells them?

how

10:15 Yet how will anyone tell them if they are not sent out? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”

πως
G4459
how

10:16 But not all heed this good news; as Isaiah says, “Master, who believed what we told them?”

10:17 So it follows that faith comes from being told, and being told comes from the declaration of the Anointed.

αρα

consequently

10:18 But am I saying that Israel didn’t hear? Of course they did: “Their speech went out into all the earth, their declarations to the farthest reaches of civilization.”

αλλα
G235
but

10:19 So am I saying Israel didn’t know? First of all, Moses says “I will provoke you to jealousy over those who are not a nation; I will annoy you over a clueless nation.”

αλλα
G235
but

10:20 Yet Isaiah boldly stated, “I was found by those who weren’t even looking for me; I was revealed to those who weren’t even asking about me.”
