Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:1 - I ask then: Did God reject his people? By no means! I am an Israelite myself, a descendant of Abraham, from the tribe of Benjamin.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:2 - God did not reject his people, whom he foreknew. Don’t you know what Scripture says in the passage about Elijah—how he appealed to 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 kill me”[fn]?

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:4 - And what was God’s answer to him? “I have reserved for myself seven thousand who have not bowed the knee to Baal.”[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:5 - So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:6 - And if by grace, then it cannot be based on works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:7 - What then? What the people of Israel sought so earnestly they did not obtain. The elect among them did, but the others were hardened,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:8 - as it is written: “God gave them a spirit of stupor, eyes that could not see and ears that could not hear, to this very day.”[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:9 - And David says: “May their table become a snare and a trap, a stumbling block and a retribution for them.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:10 - May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see, and their backs be bent forever.”[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:11 - Again I ask: Did they stumble so as to fall beyond recovery? Not at all! Rather, because of their transgression, salvation has come to the Gentiles to make Israel envious.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:12 - But if their transgression means riches for the world, and their loss means riches for the Gentiles, how much greater riches will their full inclusion bring!

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:13 - I am talking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I take pride in my ministry

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:14 - in the hope that I may somehow arouse my own people to envy and save some of them.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:15 - For if their rejection brought reconciliation to the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:16 - If the part of the dough offered as firstfruits is holy, then the whole batch is holy; if the root is holy, so are the branches.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:17 - If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:18 - do not consider yourself to be superior to those other branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:19 - You will say then, “Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in.”

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:20 - Granted. But they were broken off because of unbelief, and you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but tremble.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:21 - For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:22 - Consider therefore the kindness and sternness of God: sternness to those who fell, but kindness to you, provided that you continue in his kindness. Otherwise, you also will be cut off.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:23 - And if they do not persist in unbelief, they will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:24 - After all, if you were cut out of an olive tree that is wild by nature, and contrary to nature were grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much more readily will these, the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree!

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:25 - I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:26 - and in this way[fn] all 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 is[fn] my covenant with them when I take away their sins.”[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:28 - As far as the gospel is concerned, they are enemies for your sake; but as far as election is concerned, they are loved on account of the patriarchs,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:29 - for God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:30 - Just as you who were at one time disobedient to God have now received mercy as a result of their disobedience,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:31 - so they too have now become disobedient in order that they too may now[fn] receive mercy as a result of God’s mercy to you.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:32 - For God has bound everyone over to disobedience so that he may have mercy on them all.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:33 - Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and[fn] knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:34 - “Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?”[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:35 - “Who has ever given to God, that God should repay them?”[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:36 - For from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.
