Deep Concern for Israel

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:1 - I am telling the truth in Christ, I am not lying; my conscience testifies with me in the Holy Spirit,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:2 - that I have great sorrow and unceasing grief in my heart.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:3 - For I could [fn]wish that I myself were accursed, separated from Christ for the sake of my countrymen, my kinsmen according to the flesh,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:4 - who are Israelites, to whom belongs the adoption as sons and daughters, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the Law, the temple service, and the promises;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:5 - whose are the fathers, and from whom is the [fn]Christ according to the flesh, who is over all, God blessed [fn]forever. Amen.
(Gen 25:19–23 )
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:6 - But it is not as though the word of God has failed. For they are not all Israel who are descended from Israel;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:7 - nor are they all children because they are Abraham’s [fn]descendants, but: “[fn]THROUGH ISAAC YOUR [fn]DESCENDANTS SHALL BE NAMED.”
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:8 - That is, it is not the children of the flesh [fn]who are children of God, but the children of the promise are regarded as [fn]descendants.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:9 - For this is the word of promise: “AT THIS TIME I WILL COME, AND SARAH WILL HAVE A SON.”
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:10 - And not only that, but there was also Rebekah, when she had conceived twins by one man, our father Isaac;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:11 - for though the twins were not yet born and had not done anything good or bad, so that God’s purpose according to His choice would [fn]stand, not [fn]because of works but [fn]because of Him who calls,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:12 - it was said to her, “THE OLDER WILL SERVE THE YOUNGER.”
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:13 - Just as it is written: “JACOB I HAVE LOVED, BUT ESAU I HAVE HATED.”
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:14 - What shall we say then? There is no injustice with God, is there? [fn]Far from it!
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:15 - For He says to Moses, “I WILL HAVE MERCY ON WHOMEVER I HAVE MERCY, AND I WILL SHOW COMPASSION TO WHOMEVER I SHOW COMPASSION.”
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:16 - So then, it does not depend on the person who [fn]wants it nor the one who [fn]runs, but on God who has mercy.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:17 - For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, “FOR THIS VERY REASON I RAISED YOU UP, IN ORDER TO DEMONSTRATE MY POWER IN YOU, AND THAT MY NAME MIGHT BE PROCLAIMED [fn]THROUGHOUT THE EARTH.”
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:18 - So then He has mercy on whom He desires, and He hardens whom He desires.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:19 - You will say to me then, “Why does He still find fault? For who has resisted His will?”
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:20 - On the contrary, who are you, [fn]you foolish person, who answers back to God? The thing molded will not say to the molder, “Why did you make me like this,” will it?
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:21 - Or does the potter not have a right over the clay, to make from the same lump one object [fn]for honorable use, and another [fn]for common use?
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:22 - [fn]What if God, although willing to demonstrate His wrath and to make His power known, endured with great patience objects of wrath prepared for destruction?
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:23 - And He did so to make known the riches of His glory upon objects of mercy, which He prepared beforehand for glory,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:24 - namely us, whom He also called, not only from among Jews, but also from among Gentiles,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:25 - as He also says in Hosea:
“I WILL CALL THOSE WHO WERE NOT MY PEOPLE, ‘MY PEOPLE,’
AND HER WHO WAS NOT BELOVED, ‘BELOVED.’”
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:26 - “AND IT SHALL BE THAT IN THE PLACE WHERE IT WAS SAID TO THEM, ‘YOU ARE NOT MY PEOPLE,’
THERE THEY SHALL BE CALLED SONS OF THE LIVING GOD.”
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:27 - Isaiah cries out concerning Israel, “THOUGH THE NUMBER OF THE SONS OF ISRAEL MAY BE LIKE THE SAND OF THE SEA, ONLY THE REMNANT WILL BE SAVED;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:28 - FOR THE LORD WILL EXECUTE HIS WORD ON THE EARTH, [fn]THOROUGHLY AND [fn]QUICKLY.”
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:29 - And just as Isaiah foretold:
“IF THE LORD [fn]OF ARMIES HAD NOT LEFT US [fn]DESCENDANTS,
WE WOULD HAVE BECOME LIKE SODOM, AND WOULD HAVE [fn]BEEN LIKE GOMORRAH.”
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:30 - What shall we say then? That Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, attained righteousness, but the righteousness that is [fn]by faith;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:31 - however, Israel, pursuing a law of righteousness, did not arrive at that law.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:32 - Why? Because they did not pursue it [fn]by faith, but as though they could [fn]by works. They stumbled over the stumbling stone,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 9:33 - just as it is written:
“BEHOLD, I AM LAYING IN ZION A STONE OF STUMBLING AND A ROCK OF OFFENSE,
AND THE ONE WHO BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE [fn]PUT TO SHAME.”
