My heart’s desire
And my prayer to God
Is that they may be saved.”
Ἀδελφοί, ἡ μὲν εὐδοκία τῆς ἐμῆς καρδίας καὶ ἡ δέησις πρὸς τὸν Θεὸν ὑπὲρ αὐτῶν εἰς σωτηρίαν.
Paul said. “My brothers (Ἀδελφοί)! My heart’s desire (ἡ μὲν εὐδοκία τῆς ἐμῆς καρδίας) and my prayer (καὶ ἡ δέησις) to God (πρὸς τὸν Θεὸν) for them (αὐτῶν), the Israelites, was that they might be saved (εἰς σωτηρίαν). Paul desired and prayed to God that the Israelites would be saved. He was not opposed to the Jewish people. He just wanted them saved. Do you want Jewish people to be saved?
