Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:1 - I say then, Did God cast off his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:2 - God did not cast off his people which he foreknew. Or know ye not what the scripture saith of Elijah? how he pleadeth with God against Israel:
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:3 - Lord, they have killed thy prophets, they have digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:4 - But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have left for myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to Baal.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:5 - Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:6 - But if it is by grace, it is no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:7 - What then? That which Israel seeketh for, that he obtained not; but the election obtained it, and the rest were hardened:
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:8 - according as it is written, God gave them a spirit of stupor, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear, unto this very day.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:9 - And David saith,
Let their table be made a snare, and a trap,
And a stumblingblock, and a recompense unto them:
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:10 -
Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see,
And bow thou down their back always.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:11 - I say then, Did they stumble that they might fall? God forbid: but by their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, to provoke them to jealousy.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:12 - Now if their fall is the riches of the world, and their loss the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:13 - But I speak to you that are Gentiles. Inasmuch then as I am an apostle of Gentiles, I glorify my ministry;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:14 - if by any means I may provoke to jealousy them that are my flesh, and may save some of them.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:15 - For if the casting away of them is the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:16 - And if the firstfruit is holy, so is the lump: and if the root is holy, so are the branches.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:17 - But if some of the branches were broken off, and thou, being a wild olive, wast grafted in among them, and didst become partaker with them of the root of the fatness of the olive tree;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:18 - glory not over the branches: but if thou gloriest, it is not thou that bearest the root, but the root thee.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:19 - Thou wilt say then, Branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:20 - Well; by their unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by thy faith. Be not highminded, but fear:
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:21 - for if God spared not the natural branches, neither will he spare thee.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:22 - Behold then the goodness and severity of God: toward them that fell, severity; but toward thee, God’s goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:23 - And they also, if they continue not in their unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:24 - For if thou wast cut out of that which is by nature a wild olive tree, and wast grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree; how much more shall these, which are the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:25 - For I would not, brethren, have you ignorant of this mystery, lest ye be wise in your own conceits, that a hardening in part hath befallen Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:26 - and so all Israel shall be saved: even as it is written,
There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer;
He shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:27 -
And this is my covenant unto them,
When I shall take away their sins.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:28 - As touching the gospel, they are enemies for your sake: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers’ sake.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:29 - For the gifts and the calling of God are not repented of.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:30 - For as ye in time past were disobedient to God, but now have obtained mercy by their disobedience,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:31 - even so have these also now been disobedient, that by the mercy shown to you they also may now obtain mercy.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:32 - For God hath shut up all unto disobedience, that he might have mercy upon all.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:33 - O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and the knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past tracing out!
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:34 - For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:35 - or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:36 - For of him, and through him, and unto him, are all things. To him be the glory for ever. Amen.
