OLIVER, Willem. Romans 10:5-13 revisited. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2015, vol.71, n.3, pp.01-12. ISSN 2072-8050.

The aim of this article is to investigate Romans 10:5-13 and specifically the impact of the chiasm (chiasmus) in Romans 10:9-10 on this sub-pericope. In the chiasm Paul makes the following statement(s): A If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord B and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, C you will be saved. B For with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, A and with the mouth/he confesses, resulting in salvation. What gives the chiasm existential value here is the fact that this is the only passage in which Paul uses confess with your mouth as a condition for salvation. The sub-pericope will be discussed against the background of the introduction to the letter (Rm 1:16-17) as well as Romans 3:21-31.
