Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentRomans 10:3
- Being ignorant of God's righteousness (agnoountev thn tou teou dikaiosunhn).
- A blunt thing to say, but true as Paul has shown in 2:1-3:20. They did not understand the God-kind of righteousness by faith (1:17). They misconceived it (2:4).
- They did not subject themselves (oux upetaghsan).
- Second aorist passive indicative of upotassw, common Koine verb, to put oneself under orders, to obey, here the passive in sense of the middle (James 4:7) like apekrithn, I answered.
