  1. I originally posted a chiasm for Romans 10:9,10 as follows:

    A (9) That if THOU SHALT CONFESS WITH THY MOUTH the Lord Jesus,
    B (9) and SHALT BELIEVE IN THINE HEART that God hath raised him from the dead,
    C (9) thou shalt be saved.
    B1 (10) For WITH THE HEART man BELIEVETH unto righteousness;
    C1 (10) and WITH THE MOUTH CONFESSION IS MADE unto salvation.

    However, confession/mouth can be separated. Also, as Mark points out in his comment on Romans 10:9-13, believe/heart can be separated. Not sure how I missed these when I did the original post; “slow” and “blind” come to mind! I’ve googled this and it seems to be a well-known chiasm. Anyway, rather than put up a new blog I’ve edited the original.
