Romans 9:30-31

Context
Israel’s Rejection Culpable

9:30 What shall we say then? – that the Gentiles who did not pursue righteousness obtained it, that is, a righteousness that is by faith, 9:31 but Israel even though pursuing 1  a law of righteousness 2  did not attain it. 3 

1 tn Or “who pursued.” The participle could be taken adverbially or adjectivally.

2 tn Or “a legal righteousness,” that is, a righteousness based on law. This translation would treat the genitive δικαιοσύνης (dikaiosunh") as an attributed genitive (see ExSyn 89-91).

3 tn Grk “has not attained unto the law.”
