Romans 10:10

_ _ For with the heart man believeth unto — justifying

_ _ righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation — This confession of Christ’s name, especially in times of persecution, and whenever obloquy is attached to the Christian profession, is an indispensable test of discipleship.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 10:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 10:10

For with the heart — Not the understanding only. Man believeth to righteousness — So as to obtain justification. And with the mouth confession is made — So as to obtain final salvation. Confession here implies the whole of outward, as believing does the root of all inward, religion.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 10:10

For with the heart man (i) believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

(i) Faith is said to justify, and furthermore seeing the confession of the mouth is an effect of faith, and confession in the way to come to salvation, it follows that faith is also said to save.
