Israel’s Rejection Not Total

Tools specific to Rom 11:1

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 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.

Tools specific to Rom 11:2

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 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?

Tools specific to Rom 11:3

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 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!

Tools specific to Rom 11:4

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:4

But what was God’s reply to him? I have left 7,000 men for Myself who have not bowed down to Baal.

Tools specific to Rom 11:5

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:5

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

Tools specific to Rom 11:6

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:6

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

Tools specific to Rom 11:7

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:7

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

Tools specific to Rom 11:8

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:8

as it is written:

God gave them a spirit of insensitivity,[fn]

eyes that cannot see

and ears that cannot hear,

to this day.

Tools specific to Rom 11:9

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:9

And David says:

Let their feasting[fn] become a snare and a trap,

a pitfall and a retribution to them.

Tools specific to Rom 11:10

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:10

Let their eyes be darkened so they cannot see,

and their backs be bent continually.

  
Israel’s Rejection Not Final

Tools specific to Rom 11:11

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:11

I ask, then, have they stumbled in order to fall? Absolutely not! On the contrary, by their stumbling,[fn] salvation has come to the Gentiles to make Israel jealous.

Tools specific to Rom 11:12

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:12

Now if their stumbling[fn] brings riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more will their full number bring!

Tools specific to Rom 11:13

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:13

Now I am speaking to you Gentiles. In view of the fact that I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry,

Tools specific to Rom 11:14

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:14

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

Tools specific to Rom 11:15

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:15

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

Tools specific to Rom 11:16

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:16

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

Tools specific to Rom 11:17

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 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,

Tools specific to Rom 11:18

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:18

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

Tools specific to Rom 11:19

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:19

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

Tools specific to Rom 11:20

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:20

True enough; they were broken off by unbelief, but you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but be afraid.

Tools specific to Rom 11:21

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:21

For if God did not spare the natural branches, He will not spare you either.

Tools specific to Rom 11:22

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 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.

Tools specific to Rom 11:23

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 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.

Tools specific to Rom 11:24

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:24

For if you were cut off from your native wild olive 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?

Tools specific to Rom 11:25

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:25

So that you will not be conceited, brothers, I do not want you to be unaware of this mystery: A partial hardening has come to Israel until the full number of the Gentiles has come in.

Tools specific to Rom 11:26

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:26

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

The Liberator will come from Zion;

He will turn away godlessness from Jacob.

Tools specific to Rom 11:27

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:27

And this will be My covenant with them

when I take away their sins.

Tools specific to Rom 11:28

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:28

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

Tools specific to Rom 11:29

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:29

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

Tools specific to Rom 11:30

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:30

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

Tools specific to Rom 11:31

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:31

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

Tools specific to Rom 11:32

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:32

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

  
A Hymn of Praise

Tools specific to Rom 11:33

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:33

Oh, the depth of the riches

both of the wisdom and the knowledge of God!

How unsearchable His judgments

and untraceable His ways!

Tools specific to Rom 11:34

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:34

For who has known the mind of the Lord?

Or who has been His counselor?

Tools specific to Rom 11:35

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:35

Or who has ever first given to Him,

and has to be repaid?

Tools specific to Rom 11:36

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 11:36

For from Him and through Him

and to Him are all things.

To Him be the glory forever. Amen.
