Romans 11

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: 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, 11:3 `Lord, Thy prophets they did kill, and Thy altars they dug down, and I was left alone, and they seek my life;' 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.' 11:5 So then also in the present time a remnant according to the choice of grace there hath been; 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. 11:7 What then What Israel doth seek after, this it did not obtain, and the chosen did obtain, and the rest were hardened, 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, 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; 11:10 let their eyes be darkened--not to behold, and their back do Thou always bow down.' 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; 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 11:13 For to you I speak--to the nations--inasmuch as I am indeed an apostle of nations, my ministration I do glorify; 11:14 if by any means I shall arouse to jealousy mine own flesh, and shall save some of them, 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 11:16 and if the first-fruit [is] holy, the lump also; and if the root [is] holy, the branches also. 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-- 11:18 do not boast against the branches; and if thou dost boast, thou dost not bear the root, but the root thee! 11:19 Thou wilt say, then, `The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in;' right! 11:20 by unbelief they were broken off, and thou hast stood by faith; be not high-minded, but be fearing; 11:21 for if God the natural branches did not spare--lest perhaps He also shall not spare thee. 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. 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; 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 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; 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, 11:27 and this to them [is] the covenant from Me, when I may take away their sins.' 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; 11:29 for unrepented of [are] the gifts and the calling of God; 11:30 for as ye also once did not believe in God, and now did find kindness by the unbelief of these: 11:31 so also these now did not believe, that in your kindness they also may find kindness; 11:32 for God did shut up together the whole to unbelief, that to the whole He might do kindness.  11:33 O depth of riches, and wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable His judgments, and untraceable His ways! 11:34 for who did know the mind of the Lord or who did become His counsellor 11:35 or who did first give to Him, and it shall be given back to him again 11:36 because of Him, and through Him, and to Him [are] the all things; to Him [is] the glory--to the ages. Amen.
