Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:1 - I say, then, Did God cast away His people? let it not be! for I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin:
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:2 - God did not cast away His people whom He knew before; have ye not known -- in Elijah -- what the Writing saith? how he doth plead with God concerning Israel, saying,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:3 - 'Lord, Thy prophets they did kill, and Thy altars they dug down, and I was left alone, and they seek my life;'
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:4 - but what saith the divine answer to him? 'I left to Myself seven thousand men, who did not bow a knee to Baal.'
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:5 - So then also in the present time a remnant according to the choice of grace there hath been;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:6 - and if by grace, no more of works, otherwise the grace becometh no more grace; and if of works, it is no more grace, otherwise the work is no more work.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:7 - What then? What Israel doth seek after, this it did not obtain, and the chosen did obtain, and the rest were hardened,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:8 - according as it hath been written, 'God gave to them a spirit of deep sleep, eyes not to see, and ears not to hear,' -- unto this very day,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:9 - and David saith, 'Let their table become for a snare, and for a trap, and for a stumbling-block, and for a recompense to them;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:10 - let their eyes be darkened -- not to behold, and their back do Thou always bow down.'
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:11 - I say, then, Did they stumble that they might fall? let it not be! but by their fall the salvation is to the nations, to arouse them to jealousy;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:12 - and if the fall of them is the riches of a world, and the diminution of them the riches of nations, how much more the fulness of them?
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:13 - For to you I speak -- to the nations -- inasmuch as I am indeed an apostle of nations, my ministration I do glorify;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:14 - if by any means I shall arouse to jealousy mine own flesh, and shall save some of them,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:15 - for if the casting away of them is a reconciliation of the world, what the reception -- if not life out of the dead?
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:16 - and if the first-fruit is holy, the lump also; and if the root is holy, the branches also.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:17 - And if certain of the branches were broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wast graffed in among them, and a fellow-partaker of the root and of the fatness of the olive tree didst become --
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:18 - do not boast against the branches; and if thou dost boast, thou dost not bear the root, but the root thee!
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:19 - Thou wilt say, then, 'The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in;' right!
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:20 - by unbelief they were broken off, and thou hast stood by faith; be not high-minded, but be fearing;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:21 - for if God the natural branches did not spare -- lest perhaps He also shall not spare thee.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:22 - Lo, then, goodness and severity of God -- upon those indeed who fell, severity; and upon thee, goodness, if thou mayest remain in the goodness, otherwise, thou also shalt be cut off.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:23 - And those also, if they may not remain in unbelief, shall be graffed in, for God is able again to graff them in;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:24 - for if thou, out of the olive tree, wild by nature, wast cut out, and, contrary to nature, wast graffed into a good olive tree, how much rather shall they, who are according to nature, be graffed into their own olive tree?
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:25 - For I do not wish you to be ignorant, brethren, of this secret -- that ye may not be wise in your own conceits -- that hardness in part to Israel hath happened till the fulness of the nations may come in;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:26 - and so all Israel shall be saved, according as it hath been written, 'There shall come forth out of Sion he who is delivering, and he shall turn away impiety from Jacob,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:27 - and this to them is the covenant from Me, when I may take away their sins.'
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:28 - As regards, indeed, the good tidings, they are enemies on your account; and as regards the choice -- beloved on account of the fathers;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:29 - for unrepented of are the gifts and the calling of God;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:30 - for as ye also once did not believe in God, and now did find kindness by the unbelief of these:
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:31 - so also these now did not believe, that in your kindness they also may find kindness;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:32 - for God did shut up together the whole to unbelief, that to the whole He might do kindness.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:33 - O depth of riches, and wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable His judgments, and untraceable His ways!
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:34 - for who did know the mind of the Lord? or who did become His counsellor?
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:35 - or who did first give to Him, and it shall be given back to him again?
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:36 - because of Him, and through Him, and to Him are the all things; to Him is the glory -- to the ages. Amen.
