Israel’s Rejection Not Total

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:1 -

I ask, then, has God rejected his people? Absolutely not! For I too am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, from the tribe of Benjamin.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:2 -

God has not rejected his people whom he foreknew. Or don’t you know what the Scripture says in the passage about Elijah ​— ​how he pleads with God against Israel?

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:3 -

Lord, they have killed your prophets and torn down your altars. I am the only one left, and they are trying to take my life!

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:4 -

But what was God’s answer to him? I have left seven thousand for myself who have not bowed down to Baal.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:5 -

In the same way, then, there is also at the present time a remnant chosen by grace.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:6 -

Now if by grace, then it is not by works; otherwise grace ceases to be grace.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:7 -

What then? Israel did not find what it was looking for, but the elect did find it. The rest were hardened,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:8 -

as it is written,

God gave them a spirit of stupor,

eyes that cannot see

and ears that cannot hear,

to this day.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:9 -

And David says,

Let their table become a snare and a trap,

a pitfall and a retribution to them.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:10 -

Let their eyes be darkened so that they cannot see,

and their backs be bent continually.

Israel’s Rejection Not Final

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:11 -

I ask, then, have they stumbled so as to fall? Absolutely not! On the contrary, by their transgression, salvation has come to the Gentiles to make Israel jealous.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:12 -

Now if their transgression brings riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more will their fullness bring!

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:13 -

Now I am speaking to you Gentiles. Insofar as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:14 -

if I might somehow make my own people[fn] jealous and save some of them.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:15 -

For if their rejection brings reconciliation to the world, what will their acceptance mean but life from the dead?

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:16 -

Now if the firstfruits are holy, so is the whole batch. And if the root is holy, so are the branches.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:17 -

Now if some of the branches were broken off, and you, though a wild olive branch, were grafted in among them and have come to share in the rich root[fn] of the cultivated olive tree,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:18 -

do not boast that you are better than those branches. But if you do boast ​— ​you do not sustain the root, but the root sustains you.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:19 -

Then you will say, “Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in.”

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:20 -

True enough; they were broken off because of unbelief, but you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but beware,[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:21 -

because if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:22 -

Therefore, consider God’s kindness and severity: severity toward those who have fallen but God’s kindness toward you ​— ​if you remain in his kindness. Otherwise you too will be cut off.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:23 -

And even they, if they do not remain in unbelief, will be grafted in, because God has the power to graft them in again.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:24 -

For if you were cut off from your native wild olive tree and against nature were grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these ​— ​the natural branches ​— ​be grafted into their own olive tree?

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:25 -

I don’t want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters, so that you will not be conceited: A partial hardening has come upon Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:26 -

And in this way all[fn] Israel will be saved, as it is written,

The Deliverer will come from Zion;

he will turn godlessness away from Jacob.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:27 -

And this will be my covenant with them

when I take away their sins.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:28 -

Regarding the gospel, they are enemies for your advantage, but regarding election, they are loved because of the patriarchs,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:29 -

since God’s gracious gifts and calling are irrevocable.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:30 -

As you once disobeyed God but now have received mercy through their disobedience,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:31 -

so they too have now disobeyed, resulting in mercy to you, so that they also may now[fn] receive mercy.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:32 -

For God has imprisoned all in disobedience so that he may have mercy on all.

A Hymn of Praise

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:33 -

Oh, the depth of the riches

both of the wisdom and of the knowledge of God!

How unsearchable his judgments

and untraceable his ways!

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:34 -

For who has known the mind of the Lord?

Or who has been his counselor?

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:35 -

And who has ever given to God,

that he should be repaid?

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:36 -

For from him and through him

and to him are all things.

To him be the glory forever. Amen.
