Tools specific to Rom 9:1

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:1

I am telling the truth in Christ (I am not lying!), for my conscience assures me in the Holy Spirit -

Tools specific to Rom 9:2

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:2

I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart.

Tools specific to Rom 9:3

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:3

For I could wish that I myself were accursed - cut off from Christ - for the sake of my people, my fellow countrymen,

Tools specific to Rom 9:4

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:4

who are Israelites. To them belong the adoption as sons, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the temple worship, and the promises.

Tools specific to Rom 9:5

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:5

To them belong the patriarchs, and from them, by human descent, came the Christ, who is God over all, blessed forever! Amen.

Tools specific to Rom 9:6

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:6

It is not as though the word of God had failed. For not all those who are descended from Israel are truly Israel,

Tools specific to Rom 9:7

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:7

nor are all the children Abraham's true descendants; rather "through Isaac will your descendants be counted."

Tools specific to Rom 9:8

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:8

This means it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God; rather, the children of promise are counted as descendants.

Tools specific to Rom 9:9

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:9

For this is what the promise declared: "About a year from now I will return and Sarah will have a son."

Tools specific to Rom 9:10

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:10

Not only that, but when Rebekah had conceived children by one man, our ancestor Isaac -

Tools specific to Rom 9:11

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:11

even before they were born or had done anything good or bad (so that God's purpose in election would stand, not by works but by his calling) -

Tools specific to Rom 9:12

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:12

it was said to her, "The older will serve the younger,"

Tools specific to Rom 9:13

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:13

just as it is written: "Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated."

Tools specific to Rom 9:14

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:14

What shall we say then? Is there injustice with God? Absolutely not!

Tools specific to Rom 9:15

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:15

For he says to Moses: "I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion."

Tools specific to Rom 9:16

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:16

So then, it does not depend on human desire or exertion, but on God who shows mercy.

Tools specific to Rom 9:17

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:17

For the scripture says to Pharaoh: "For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I may demonstrate my power in you, and that my name may be proclaimed in all the earth."

Tools specific to Rom 9:18

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:18

So then, God has mercy on whom he chooses to have mercy, and he hardens whom he chooses to harden.

Tools specific to Rom 9:19

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:19

You will say to me then, "Why does he still find fault? For who has ever resisted his will?"

Tools specific to Rom 9:20

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:20

But who indeed are you - a mere human being - to talk back to God? Does what is molded say to the molder, "Why have you made me like this?"

Tools specific to Rom 9:21

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:21

Has the potter no right to make from the same lump of clay one vessel for special use and another for ordinary use?

Tools specific to Rom 9:22

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:22

But what if God, willing to demonstrate his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience the objects of wrath prepared for destruction?

Tools specific to Rom 9:23

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:23

And what if he is willing to make known the wealth of his glory on the objects of mercy that he has prepared beforehand for glory -

Tools specific to Rom 9:24

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:24

even us, whom he has called, not only from the Jews but also from the Gentiles?

Tools specific to Rom 9:25

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:25

As he also says in Hosea: "I will call those who were not my people, 'My people,' and I will call her who was unloved, 'My beloved.'"

Tools specific to Rom 9:26

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:26

"And in the very place where it was said to them, 'You are not my people,' there they will be called 'sons of the living God.'"

Tools specific to Rom 9:27

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:27

And Isaiah cries out on behalf of Israel, "Though the number of the children of Israel are as the sand of the sea, only the remnant will be saved,

Tools specific to Rom 9:28

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:28

for the Lord will execute his sentence on the earth completely and quickly."

Tools specific to Rom 9:29

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:29

Just as Isaiah predicted, "If the Lord of armies had not left us descendants, we would have become like Sodom, and we would have resembled Gomorrah."

Tools specific to Rom 9:30

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:30

What shall we say then? - that the Gentiles who did not pursue righteousness obtained it, that is, a righteousness that is by faith,

Tools specific to Rom 9:31

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:31

but Israel even though pursuing a law of righteousness did not attain it.

Tools specific to Rom 9:32

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:32

Why not? Because they pursued it not by faith but (as if it were possible) by works. They stumbled over the stumbling stone,

Tools specific to Rom 9:33

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 9:33

just as it is written, "Look, I am laying in Zion a stone that will cause people to stumble and a rock that will make them fall, yet the one who believes in him will not be put to shame."
